Why the War Machine’s Iran dog and pony show? And what comes next?

Bob Livingston Alerts

Why of course the people don’t want war … But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship … Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.” — Hermann Goering; German politician, Nazi Party leader, Gestapo founder

The unseen adepts that rule the world are masters at understanding human nature.

Millions live and die and never know that their lives are regulated by unseen authority. Every detail of our lives is prescribed. Doctors, lawyers, Indians or chiefs, we are regimented into the system.

Throw a few visual aids up, littered with code words like nuclear and holocaust and attack and Iran, and the people lose their minds.

And when the news is slow? Why, report a “drone attack” that kills no one (at a military base where we are not supposed to be, in a foreign country where we are not welcome), does little damage, and was unverifyably carried out by our greatest bogeyman “Iran,” and the War Machine’s drums start banging all over again.

These code words and “news” reports are always great fodder for the war party, which has been itching for war with Iran for 30 years or more. Iran is one of the countries targeted for “clean-up” by globalists in the George H.W. Bush administration as far back as 1991, according to retired General Wesley Clark, former commander of the Supreme HQ Allied Powers in Europe and one-time Democrat presidential candidate.

There is an astonishing lack of consideration by Americans for the fate of the American fighting men and women who would be sent to fight the wars in Syria and/or Iran. We currently have untold thousands of maimed — both physically and mentally — American military members and veterans (and their families) attempting to cope with the scars they received fighting during two decades of unnecessary wars on behalf of the banksters and the military-industrial complex. And thousands more are dead.

And there is still less consideration given to the economic cost of the war that has been paid for by money printing on a scale never before conceived.

But after all those years of war and those injuries and deaths, the region is less stable than ever. How will more wars not result in more of the same? What evidence is there that continuing the strategies of the last four presidents to attack other countries will end Islamist sectarian conflicts or reduce the chances of terror attacks on American interests or American soil?

Those questions are not considered in the rush to war.

The Donald Trump regime under Secretary of State Mike Pompeo acted as a belligerent against Iran, which poses no military threat to the U.S. Yet the media, Trump’s supporters and even the anti-Trump Republicans and Democrats were effusive in their praise of Trump for his military strikes on a country that has not attacked the U.S.

I love my nation, but I fear what my government has become and where it wants to take us. My efforts are devoted to helping us all break the bonds of conventional wisdom and find the truth… no matter how uncomfortable.

Blood sacrifice in whose name?

You see, dear reader, humans by nature are followers. Therefore, when authority appears, they follow. When absolute authority emerges the people follow without question and even to the point of self-sacrifice. Millions will give their own lives and those of their sons and daughters in war and never question or consider what they are doing. The mystique of government authority holds in its hands life and death — ours.

So when government men and their state media propaganda arm begin warning of imminent danger from this or that state actor — or Islamic terror sponsored by said state — the people are fooled into blood sacrifices under the pretense of war and patriotism.

Wars are not for patriotism and “democracy,” as we are propagandized. Wars are to kill; i.e., mass ritual murder. And secondly, big business reaps massive profits for the killing and sacrifice of young men (lambs) on all sides of combat.

Never mind that the same people and agencies who are now telling us that North Korea has suddenly created the technology to launch missiles from their submarines have been telling us for years that Iran was on the verge of developing nuclear weapons — it hasn’t — and that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction — it didn’t.

Never mind that these same people and agencies told us that the Syrian government used gas — twice — on its own people — it didn’t. This was used as justification for America’s war to topple Bashar Assad by the Barack Obama/Hillary Clinton regime; and later for Donald Trump to attack a Syrian airbase with Tomahawk missiles and for us to still have 200 troops stationed at a base in Syria specifically used for anti-government forces.

Never mind that these same people and agencies told us in the lead-up to the first Gulf War that Iraqis were removing Kuwaiti babies from incubators, and the same ones who later created a story about military raid to “free” Private Jessica Lynch from an Iraqi hospital, and the same ones who claimed Army Ranger Pat Tillman was killed by the enemy.

And they are the same ones who claim and have claimed — without evidence — that Russia interfered with the American election and are responsible for the Donald Trump presidency.

Yet like an abused spouse who returns to her husband on his promises that the abuse will end, the American people buy the new war propaganda.

Governments throughout history — the U.S. government included — have engaged in false flag operations and mass propaganda to start and maintain wars.

One of the most conventional political tricks is to put up a well-advertised charade to cover for hidden political, military or economic machination. Anybody who has read The Prince knows this like poetry.

The Prince (1513) is an old classic still available almost anywhere. It was written by Niccolo Machiavelli. It is a blueprint for political power where the end justifies the means. This political doctrine denies the relevance of morality in political affairs and holds that craft and deceit are justified in pursuing and maintaining political power.

Any time the media saturates the public on any subject, look for contrary opinion if you really want the truth. Their current “reports” and code phrases have made most people forget that the U.S. has been meddling in Iranian affairs for more than 70 years.

The United States began its Mideast coup in 1951 when Kermit Roosevelt, a grandson of Theodore Roosevelt and a CIA agent, was sent to Iran to organize a revolt against that country’s democratically elected prime minister, Mohammed Mossadegh, after Mossadegh nationalized Iran’s petroleum assets, cutting out the British petroleum company that would later become known as BP.

Mossadageh was removed and the Shah installed as dictator where he remained until he was thrown out in 1979 by the Islamic Revolution. The U.S. and its allies have essentially been at war with Iran ever since, though it’s been economic and through proxies.

It was the frozen assets from years of economic sanctions and aborted arms sales that President Barack Obama returned to Iran 2016 — $1.7 billion in principal and interest — which became part of the “disastrous nuclear deal” narrative that President Donald Trump ran on.

The War Machine for profit

In my experience, everything boils down to following the money.

And if we follow that line of thinking, knowing that the powers that be crave petro-dollars and power regardless of anything that happens beneath them. They keep your gas prices high by manufacturing conflict that is then reported in the news which raises the speculative commodity price of oil.

This is the reason we continue to write to you about owning hard assets. Their prices rise like oil does. Most of the world’s economies are bubble economies created with pure fiat or petro-fiat currency. Wars are used by the elites to cover currency devaluation and transfer wealth to themselves. That’s why Washington picks fights with oil-producing nations and in the case of North Korea, a nation rich in rare earth minerals, gold, and other deposits the military and tech industries covet.

If war comes, the bankster elites — as always — will seek to profit leaving everyone else unprotected, unless you are prepared.

Yours for the truth,
