Never forget.



“I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.”
Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto




“With confidence in our armed forces - with the unbounded determination of our people - we will gain the inevitable triumph - so help us God.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt

Thank you Larry, we should never forget that the things we do have consequences. On August 1, 1941, the US imposed an oil embargo that caused a crisis in Japan because they had no domestic oil production.

Yeah, and we brought on 9/11 with our evil capitalistic policies as well.

Oh I forgot, we actually self inflicted 9/11 on our own as an excuse to later invade Iraq.

Thank you.

I'm sure that there are older members of our community who wonder why we are not observing this day more than we are.

It's the least I could do.

Town flags are down to half staff, so let's hope younger folks notice.

FALSE FLAG OPERATION

FDR was once Assistant Secretary for the Navy, and he loved those BIG bad ships. He would never have done anything to endanger them.

The USS Maine Incident, 1898, The United States government sought to invade the Philippines and end Spanish colonial rule of the islands. But they knew the American public would not accept a war unless they were convinced that the Spanish attacked the U.S. So the USS Maine was blown up and the attack blamed on the Spanish.

The Assassination of Franz Ferdinand, 1914, the event that started World War I, was an event orchestrated by British and French intelligence services.

The Sinking of RMS Lusitania, 1917, United States President Woodrow Wilson wanted to get his country involved in World War One. But he knew the American public would not accept a war unless they were convinced they were under attack. So the passenger ship RMS Lusitania was packed with explosives and sent into German controlled waters without protection. It was sunk and a million Americans signed up to fight World War One.

The Attack on Pearl Harbor, 1941, The US Administration of FDR sought to involve America in World War II. But the American people wanted to stay out of it. So the Administration provoked Japan, in the hope that they would attack the U.S. The plan worked, and FDR made sure that the attacks took place successfully and had the maximum effect and impact. Believing that it was a surprise and unprovoked attack by the Japanese at Pearl Harbor, Americans now supported U.S. entry into the war.

The Gulf of Tonkin Incident, 1964, President Johnson needed a pretext in order to commit the American people to an expanding covert war in South-East Asia. On August 2nd Western news media reported that a U.S. destroyer, the Maddox, in the Gulf of Tonkin, had been attacked by three Vietnamese PT boats. Two days later the Maddox was said to have been attacked again. Documents declassified in 2005 reveal that in fact on August 2nd the Maddox had fired the first shots, and that he alleged events of August 4th never even took place.

The following events are supported by indisputable evidence, but continue to be denied by mainstream politicians and the media.

The World Trade Center bombing, 1993,

The Oklahoma City bombing, 1995,

The Moscow Apartment bombings, 1999,

The September 11 Attacks, 2001, 3 World Trade Center buildings were destroyed in covert controlled demolitions as part of a coordinated attack orchestrated by agencies of the U.S. government. The attacks - which also involved hijacking four planes, two of which were flown into the Twin Towers, one into the Pentagon and one into a field in Pennsylvania, while NORAD was rendered ineffective - were blamed on Islamic extremists. The subsequent "War on Terror" provided the justification for the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan, and increased police state measures in countries throughout the world.
"My administration has focused the nation's resources on our highest priority - protecting our citizens and our homeland."
- George Bush

The Madrid Bombings, 2004, The bombing of four trains was blamed on al Qaeda terrorists, but the government now admits that the bombers had no ties to al Qaeda. Every one of the bombers had intimate links to the Spanish security services. The lead bomber was connected to the Madrid Bomb Squad.

The London Bombings, 2005, A coordinated attack on three London tube trains and one bus, orchestrated by agencies of the UK government. The attacks were blamed on Islamic extremists and used to further justify, and intensify, the "War on Terror".

LARRY IS SO NIAVE

I don't buy the "we wanted it to happen argument" but it's a long time since 1941 and a lot of info has come out. You had two empires vying for supremacy in the pacific and they both knew they were heading for war. It was just a matter of when it was going to start. Why do you think they built all those big battleships? To project American power. I'm not saying it's right or wrong, just that it's the reality of what was really going on.

The flip side of the belief in "my country right or wrong" are those who believe that simple incompetence doesn't count for anything in American history.

The notion that everything is explained by American malfeasance and malevolence is also a naive one: it gives our political leaders way, way too much credit for orchestrating history. Sometimes the folks at the top are simply asleep or stupid. Sometimes they simply miss stuff.

Sure, our leaders have lied to us in the past, especially on the Gulf of Tonkin incident, but let's not get carried away.

For every atrocity, there's a conspiracy theory that shifts the blame.

I agree, but it's also simplistic to perpetuate the fiction that we were just minding our own business when we had an unprovoked attack. The two empires were both in conflict with each other. It's not like we were friends with Japan and then they attacked. We were fighting a covert air war using the Chinese as cover beginning in 1937.

LarryK4 said...

The attack was certainly not unprovoked (9/11 most certainly was), but their "Declaration of War" was a tad late.

Larry, we couldn't have been more asleep at the wheel. The first shots of the war were actually fired by the US when we sank their minisubmarine, but message that we'd encountered the sub took over an hour to be relayed. If people had moved faster it wouldn't have been a surprise attack and the ships would have been out to sea.

Anonymous said...

9/11 had the same asleep at the wheel element. Yes it was unprovoked, but when an FBI agent flies to Washington to warn that suspicious middle-easterners are showing up with suitcases filled with cash for training at flight schools, and they don't want to know how to land the plane, you are supposed to pay attention. Criminally negligent.

...but Larry can (usually) spell too. He's also right on target with his commemoration of this day. There are so many people who think December 7 is just another day of the year. But for people like my grandfather, it's a bit more.

Remember the Maine! Pop quiz, Larry, what day did that happen?

LarryK4 said...

Evening of February 15, 1898.

Studied it as a history major and more recently as a journalism project.

Another false flag operation. Never was a torpedo but it certainly was a great pretext for declaring war with Spain.

Take a hint.
