On August 2, 1964 & Also On August 4, 1964 . . . There were Two ALLEGED Torpedo Attacks on Powerful US War Ships (Destroyers USS Maddox & USS Turner Joy) by the North Vietnamese Navy, where to the Best of my Research, I could Find No Reports of Damage to Either War Ship, which Nonetheless Gave the Casus-Belli (Excuse) for Democrat President Lyndon Baines Johnson (LBJ) to Get the Green-Light to Go To War Against the Communist North Vietnamese Government.
And Even though LBJ Got his Pass from the US Congress to Eventually Conscript & Send More than 2.7-Million American Men & Women . . . to Fight, Kill, Become Physically & Mentally Wounded, Become Prisoners of War & Die (More than 58,000 Dead Americans) . . . In A War That Was Never Declared By Congress.
This Editorial Is Not About The Virtue Of The Vietnam War . . . But About The Probable Propaganda . . . that Caused the Killing & Absolute Destruction of Millions (Collectively) of Americans, North Vietnamese, South Vietnamese, Soldiers, Non-Combatants (Women & Children) and the Absolute Destruction of Vietnamese Wildlife, Flora & Agriculture.
This Undeclared War Also Unleashed Genocidal Weapons Like Agent Orange & Napalm.
By Using A Casus-Belli As An Excuse To Go To War Where Millions Died & Vast Fortunes Spent . . . Asks This Simple Question:
You Have To Wonder . . . Who in North America, Especially in the United States of America ever Contemplated in His or Her Wildest Dreams (Nightmares), that the Government Would Mandate Against The First Amendment – Vis a Vis the Right to Peacefully Assemble and the Right to Gather in Prayer?
Who in a Million Years in North America Would have Ever Believed that the Government Could or Would Suspend the Rights of a Free People to Conduct Legal Commerce . . . and Worse – to Create an Electoral Environment that would Encourage Election Cheating?
Who Would Have Thought That The Denial Of Free Speech Would Become Accepted North American Policy?
When We Use The Term Casus-Belli – We Always Think Of The Excuse To Go To War . . . But It’s More Than That.
In This Modern Context . . . The Globalist (Neo-Communist) Casus-Belli is the China Virus, which in the Words of the Excremental Rahm Emanuel, Obama’s First Chief of Staff & Failed Mayor of Chicago who once Famously Stated . . . “Never Let a Good Crisis Go To Waste” . . . Has Special Meaning Today.
“You Never Want A Serious Crisis To Go To Waste. And What I Mean By That, Is An Opportunity To Do Things That You Think You Could Not Do Before”.
I Am All But Convinced . . . As I’ve Written Multiple Times – I Don’t Know if the China Virus was Intentionally or Accidentally Released upon the World, But What I Am 100% Certain-Of, is that the China Virus is a Crisis, whether it’s as Real a Crisis as the Government Wants to Convince us that it is – Or Not . . .
But Either Way – What Is Real, is How the Government is Using the China Virus as a Casus-Belli to Remove all the Guarantees of Freedom, which have been Nurtured in North America for over a Period of Several Centuries . . . And We’re Letting Them.
Under These Rueful Times . . . What Meaning Do These Iconic Words Portend For Us As A Free People?
It’s The Gulf Of Tonkin All Over Again . . . But This Time It’s Global.
We Have Become so Inculcated (Brainwashed) by our Media, Hollywood, Decrepit Educational (Academic) System & Corrupt World of Politics, that Most of us Can’t Even Wrap our Brains Around the Reality . . . That We Have Become 21st Century Serfs.
If We As A Once Free People Are Not Prepared To Stand-Up & TAKE Our Freedoms Back Now – When & Ever Will We?
