The Cause of the Vietnam War? Another Lie.
The Gulf of Tonkin Incident: An example from the history of US false flag operations, where Government is prepared to stage an attack on the US, blame it on an alternative aggressor, and use it to provide leverage on points of foreign and domestic policy.
Over 1.5 Million Vietnamese killed & 58,000 Americans killed
An extract From “The Fog of War”.
In an interview with Robert S McNamara who was Secretary of Defense during the Vietnam War, he admits:
“IT WAS JUST CONFUSION. AND, EVENTS AFTERWARDS SHOWED THAT OUR JUDGEMENT, THAT WE HAD BEEN ATTACKED THAT DAY, WAS WRONG. IT DIDN’T HAPPEN”.
Typical War Blueprint – A False Flag attack, an unsubstantiated attack that later turns out to be false, bankers profiting from both sides of the war, fighting wars that are never meant to be won, war profits to the corporations and Americans pay the price in treasure, sweat, and blood.
Smedley Butler had it right – “WAR IS A RACKET!”
Former CIA presidential adviser to Regan/Bush, Ray McGovern speaks about the LIE at the Gulf of Tonkin that thrust war upon Vietnam.
In 1965, the Vietnam War was being expanded in many of the same ways our wars in the Middle East and Afghanistan War are being expanded today. At the time, the founder of The John Birch Society, Robert Welch tried to educate the American people on the real reason we were at war in Vietnam and why it should be resisted. Interestingly, the Vietnam War was also built on lies.
Welch’s insights remain applicable today.
