Missing trillions and contrived US Wars "against communism" and "against terror": What are we really buying?

Let's take a moment to look at our last war against an ideology and compare with our current ideological war with particular focus on how much of our funding is vanishing, even according to our own Department of Defense records.

The following is conservatively accepted history of the Vietnam War; that is, information in agreement with admissions from our own government reports and unchallenged (as far as I know) by any professional historian. The understanding of this history by those of us who study it does not guarantee that many Americans will recognize the poignant facts. Please feel free to verify these high/low lights. In one paragraph:

After the “War to make the World Safe for Democracy,” Ho Chi Minh’s petition for a democratic Vietnam was denied by the victors of WW1. Vietnam remained under France’s dictatorship for economic and political colonial domination. The US supported Minh during WW2 in his guerilla warfare against Japan, only to deny his petition for Vietnam’s independence at the end of the war. The US paid for up to 80% of France’s military costs to keep Vietnam enslaved by the French. The US supported the cancellation of an ELECTION in Vietnam when it became clear that Minh’s socialistic economic plan was more popular than a Western-friendly leader. The Vietnam War exploded with McNamara’s contrived reporting of the Gulf of Tonkin incident; manipulated intelligence at best, and an outright false-flag attack at worst. The war escalated with invasions and attacks into Laos and Cambodia, dropping more bombs than from all sides of WW2 combined on a country smaller than California that killed perhaps 10% of their civilian population – 3.5 million. The irrational goal was to “defeat terrorism”, excuse me, “defeat communism” by winning the hearts and minds of civilians while we killed over 1,000 civilian children, women and the elderly daily through high-altitude bombing. The war only ended through massive US demonstrations.

What were we really buying with this war given the above facts?

Through our own government’s admissions, all the reasons to go to war in Iraq in 2003 were known to be false at the time they were told to the American public. If you’re not sure about this, your ignorance contributes to continuing misery for millions of your fellow human beings. Harsh but true, yes? To read our own government’s reports and evaluate the evidence for yourself, either read the evidence in smaller sections here, or the entire brief. The war in Iraq has now shifted emphasis to Afghanistan and Pakistan and maintaining its high level of funding. Obama’s stated goal is to “defeat Al Qaeda.” The strategy includes high-altitude bombing, “prolonged detention” (and video here), and torture as conservatively defined by existing case law. The long-term costs according to Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz and Harvard’s Linda Bilmes will be greater than $3 trillion.

What are we getting for our money given the avalanche of verifiable facts falsifying the government's explanations?

Included with what we’re buying are two items we should more greatly appreciate: an international reputation and undisclosed Black Operation projects. The UN Charter, a current Treaty in Force registered in our State Department, outlaws all war other than defensive. Vietnam posed zero risk to US national security – how was a new democracy under UN-supervised elections a threat just because they promised a higher level of taxes and government services followed by further elections if the people wanted change? According to the unanimous reports of all 16 US Intelligence Agencies in their October 2002 National Intelligence Estimate, Iraq posed no threat to US national security. The reputation we are collectively buying is that the US is an international aggressor, for the rule of international law that the US signed as treaties and approved in the Senate is that non-defensive wars not authorized by the UN Security Council are Wars of Aggression. The second underappreciated item is that the wars might be an excuse to frighten the American public into paying for secret government projects. News to you? Better read our own government disclosures that perhaps 25% of all money going to military projects is being skimmed to go somewhere else and watch this 3-minute CBS report.

Trillions of our dollars are vanishing from official Defense Department accounting books. It’s tremendously important to know what we’re buying in our wars. It might be even more important to disclose what we don’t know we’re buying.

Thank you for all you do to demand accountable government limited by the US Constitution.

As always, please share this information with all who say they want to be accountable citizens.

New Lies For Old

It might interest the reader to learn that the War on Communism is still on. That is why a KGB officer was President of Russia (Vladimir Putin) and why so-called "former" communists still rule over Russia and the other 14 republics that made up the USSR. The "collapse" of the USSR in 1991 is a part of the USSR's strategic deception program aimed at lulling the West into a false sense of safety (see KGB defector Anatoliy Golitsyn's books New Lies For Old and The Perestroika Deception : Memoranda to the Central Intelligence Agency :


One can certainly argue about the methods in which the West fought the War on Communism, but that war still goes on. The War on Terror is a smoke screen for the War on Communism. Why do you think the United States didn't dismantle NORAD and NATO when the USSR "collapsed" in December 1991? Why do you think the United States wants to place a missile defense shield in Poland and the Czech Republic?

I am concerned about the emergence of this new ideology

This re-bottling of "the war on terror" to a "war against communism" now that FUSA (the Former USA) has been defeated on all fronts: Politically, economically, and ideologically.

Accept that peoples of the world want freedom from USA tyranny.

Just admit that the USA is now bankrupt. Many american lives will be spared.

Take your detested occupation troops home while you still can pay for the transport.

Get out of the FUSA 700 military bases around the world and restore your beautiful constition rather than recastining the PORNO you are now producing.

New Lies For Old II

What "re-bottling" are you talking about? There is no re-bottling of the War on Terror for the War Against Communism. As a matter of fact, nobody talks about the still ongoing War Against Communism, though that is what the War on Terror is being used as a smoke screen for.

To make clear this point, the War on Terror is a fraud, and the USSR still exists. That is why the electorate of Russia and the other 14 republics that made up the "former" USSR continue to elect back into power as their Presidents "former" communists.

Do you really think legitimate elections in Russia would make KGB officer Vladimir Putin President? Of course not! Elections in Russia are fixed. The Russian electorate would never make a "former" KGB officer their President.
