QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; You have pointed out that both Republicans and Democrats have voted for wars and they really seem to have no differences on this issue. You have said they use the social issues to distinguish themselves, but war and economics they seem to always agree. Do you have any insight on this phenomenon?
ANSWER: The Pentagon was unable to reconcile over $2 trillion in accounts and Rumsfeld promised an investigation the day before 9/11. The plane that struck the Pentagon magically honed in on the room with all the records. Now that number is over $6 trillion. They even lost track of $12 billion in cash sent to Iraq. Then they rigged a missile-defense test so that an interceptor could easily hone in on a target. They have lied to begin EVERY single war (see: “Cycles of War”). This is by no means a coincidence.
War is first and foremost a profitable racket. Even Lyndon Johnson admitted the Vietnamese never attacked us to start that war. He commented that for all he knew they were shooting at whales that night. This is how they line their pockets and wash their hands in the blood of our boys who are told the same sort of lies as the terrorist organizations. OK, they are not expecting a herd of virgins, but they are told that they are fighting for God and country. During World War II, Japanese kamikaze pilots were told the Emperor was God and they would be the divine wind that protected Japan — so they should crash planes into the American ships.
Just follow the money. When Trump said no more “nation building,” the military called him dangerous because they might not be able to start wars by playing with their toys.
