As Oblivious As Bugs Flying Into A Zapper
President George W. Bush addressed the nation on television at 10.15pm Eastern time (2.15pm March 20, AEST). This is the transcript of his remarks.
March 19, 2003
My fellow citizens, at this hour American and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm Iraq, to free its people and to defend the world from grave danger.
On my orders, coalition forces have begun striking selected targets of military importance to undermine Saddam Hussein's ability to wage war. These are opening stages of what will be a broad and concerted campaign.
More than 35 countries are giving crucial support, from the use of naval and air bases, to help with intelligence and logistics, to the deployment of combat units. Every nation in this coalition has chosen to bear the duty and share the honor of serving in our common defense.
To all of the men and women of the United States armed forces now in the Middle East, the peace of a troubled world and the hopes of an oppressed people now depend on you.
That trust is well placed.
The enemies you confront will come to know your skill and bravery. The people you liberate will witness the honorable and decent spirit of the American military.
In this conflict, America faces an enemy who has no regard for conventions of war or rules of morality. Saddam Hussein has placed Iraqi troops and equipment in civilian areas, attempting to use innocent men, women and children as shields for his own military; a final atrocity against his people.
I want Americans and all the world to know that coalition forces will make every effort to spare innocent civilians from harm. A campaign on the harsh terrain of a nation as large as California could be longer and more difficult than some predict. And helping Iraqis achieve a united, stable and free country will require our sustained commitment.
We come to Iraq with respect for its citizens, for their great civilization and for the religious faiths they practice. We have no ambition in Iraq, except to remove a threat and restore control of that country to its own people.
I know that the families of our military are praying that all those who serve will return safely and soon.
Million of Americans are praying with you for the safety of your loved ones and for the protection of the innocent.
For your sacrifice, you have the gratitude and respect of the American people and you can know that our forces will be coming home as soon as their work is done.
Our nation enters this conflict reluctantly, yet our purpose is sure. The people of the United States and our friends and allies will not live at the mercy of an outlaw regime that threatens the peace with weapons of mass murder.
We will meet that threat now with our Army, Air Force, Navy, Coast Guard and Marines, so that we do not have to meet it later with armies of firefighters and police and doctors on the streets of our cities.
Now that conflict has come, the only way to limit its duration is to apply decisive force. And I assure you, this will not be a campaign of half measures and we will accept no outcome but victory.
My fellow citizens, the dangers to our country and the world will be overcome. We will pass through this time of peril and carry on the work of peace. We will defend our freedom. We will bring freedom to others. And we will prevail.
May God bless our country and all who defend her.

TEHRAN The Danish Embassy was attacked and pelted with gasoline bombs two days in a row because of the caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad published in a Danish newspaper. The Austrian Embassy was stoned and had all its windows smashed for the same reason. The United States has been dubbed the World Oppressor, and Israel has always been at the top of the enemies list.
But to understand who it is that Iranians distrust most of all, one need only to visit Bobby Sands Street. Named after the Irish republican who died of a hunger strike in 1981, the street runs right past the British Embassy in a busy neighborhood of Tehran."
A not-too-subtle finger in the eye.
"We have not seen anything other than bad things from the British since they stepped foot here 200 years ago," said Seyed Razi Abbassian, 72, a dealer in collectable stamps and currencies who works from a shop across the street from the British Embassy. "We have no good memories of the British."
In an often bitterly divided country, Abbassian's outlook is one that unites Iranians of many social, economic and political classes. The idea that Britain is behind much of what goes wrong in Iran is not just another conspiracy theory, but rather a prism through which many domestic events are often viewed. Indeed, America - the Great Satan itself - is often portrayed as merely a hapless, muscle-bound child manipulated by smarter, craftier, more deceitful forces in London.
One European diplomat said that he had received a gift one time from an Iranian schoolchild: a drawing showing America as a marionette with Britain pulling the strings."
The crown created the world time system...It drew all the lines on the map...
It created the entire Middle East as you see it today. There were 9 million British soldiers and a wack of them were attacking and destroying the Ottoman Empire to take control of the Middle East...You know Lawrence of Arabia the movie - how it ended? With King Faysal negotiating to rule Syria and Lawrence walking away his job done?
Well it does not end there...And has not ended...
"The British administration of the occupied Iraq at the time had enough troubles with controlling the violent resentment of the Iraqi people for the occupation. Specially after the August 1920 revolt in almost all over the country it was decided by the British government to change it's presence in Iraq into an indirect one by giving Iraqis their own government. Faysal was the most appropriate candidate for the suggested Iraqi throne, and he had the support of the local national movement. Subsequently he was crowned on the 23rd of August 1921 as Faysal I of Iraq after a referendum controlled by the British administration."
"We must become the owners, or at any rate the controllers at the source, of at least a proportion of the oil which we require."-- British Royal Commission, agreeing with Winston Churchill's policy towards Iraq, 1913
"I am strongly in favor of using poisoned gas against uncivilized tribes. The moral effect should be good...and it would spread a lively terror.... "-- Winston Churchill commenting on the British use of poison gas against the Iraqis after World War I
"What we want to have in existence, what we ought to have been creating in this time is some administration with Arab institutions which we can safely leave while pulling the strings ourselves; something that won't cost very much, which the Labour government can swallow consistent with its' principles, but under which our economic and political interests will be secure."--Sir Arthur Hirtzel, Head of the British government's 'India Office Political Department.' 1919
"If war aims are stated which seem to be solely concerned with Anglo-American imperialism, they will offer little to people in the rest of the world. The interests of other peoples should be stressed. This would have a better propaganda effect." -- Private memo from The Council of Foreign Relations to the US State Department, 1941
"Our strategic and security interests throughout the world will be best safeguarded by the establishment in suitable spots of 'Police Stations', fully equipped to deal with emergencies within a large radius. Kuwait is one such spot from which Iraq, South Persia, Saudi Arabia and the Persian Gulf could be controlled. It will be worthwhile to go to considerable trouble and expense to establish and man a 'Police Station' there." -- British Foreign Office, policy memo, 1947
"We have about 60% of the world's wealth but only 6.3% of its' population. In this situation we cannot fail to be the object of envy and resentment. Our real task in the coming period is to devise a pattern of relationships which will permit us to maintain this position of disparity. We need not deceive ourselves that we can afford today the luxury of altruism and world benefaction. We should cease to talk about such vague and unreal objectives as human rights, the raising of living standards and democratization. The day is not far off when we are going to have to deal in straight power concepts. The less we are then hampered by idealistic slogans, the better." -- George Kennan, former Head of the US State Department Policy Planning Staff, Document PPS23, 24th February 1948
"Former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. William J. Crowe Jr. was part of the crew that sold Saddam Hussein the deadly means to wage war with anthrax germs. That's when the United States wanted the 'Butcher of Baghdad' to use anthrax on Iran."-- Air Force Major Glenn MacDonald, explaining how anthrax came to be the biological weapon of choice in the world. Adm. William J. Crowe Jr. owns 13% of BioPort Corporation, the only source for Anthrax Vaccine.
"If they turn on the radars we're going to blow up their goddamn SAMs. They know we own their country. We own their airspace... We dictate the way they live and talk. And that's what's great about America right now. It's a good thing, especially when there's a lot of oil out there we need." --U.S. Brig. General William Looney (Interview Washington Post, August 30, 1999) [Referring, to the mass-murder of hundreds of civilian Iraqi men, women and children during 10,000 sorties by American/British war planes in the first eight months of 1999]
"I believe that if we had and would keep our dirty, bloody, dollar soaked fingers out of the business of these [Third World] nations so full of depressed, exploited people, they will arrive at a solution of their own. And if unfortunately their revolution must be of the violent type because the "haves" refuse to share with the "have-nots" by any peaceful method, at least what they get will be their own, and not the American style, which they don't want and above all don't want crammed down their throats by Americans."--General David Sharp Former United States Marine Commandant 1966
"Death squads have been created and used by the CIA around the world - particularly the Third World - since the late 1940s, a fact ignored by the elite-owned media." --Ralph McGehee [Former CIA analyst & Author] CIABASE; The Crisis of Democracy Deadly Deceits: My 25 years in the CIA
"In the mid-1980s, Miles Copeland, a veteran CIA operative, told UPI the CIA had enjoyed "close ties" with Qasim's ruling Baath Party, just as it had close connections with the intelligence service of Egyptian leader Gamel Abd Nassar. In a recent public statement, Roger Morris, a former National Security Council staffer in the 1970s, confirmed this claim, saying that the CIA had chosen the authoritarian and anti-communist Baath Party "as its instrument."
"the simplest local tools are often the most efficient means of assassination. A hammer, axe, wrench, screwdriver, fire poker, kitchen knife, lamp stand, or anything hard, heavy and handy will suffice. All such improvised weapons have the important advantage of availability and apparent innocence, the assassin may accidentally be searched before the act and should not carry an incriminating device if any sort of lethal weapon can be improvised at or near the site."--CIA Manual, A Study of Assassination
According to another former senior State Department official, Saddam, while only in his early 20s, became a part of a U.S. plot to get rid of Qasim. According to this source, Saddam was installed in an apartment in Baghdad on al-Rashid Street directly opposite Qasim's office in Iraq's Ministry of Defense, to observe Qasim's movements.
Adel Darwish, Middle East expert and author of "Unholy Babylon," said the move was done "with full knowledge of the CIA," and that Saddam's CIA handler was an Iraqi dentist working for CIA and Egyptian intelligence. U.S. officials separately confirmed Darwish's account.
Darwish said that Saddam's paymaster was Capt. Abdel Maquid Farid, the assistant military attaché at the Egyptian Embassy who paid for the apartment from his own personal account. Three former senior U.S. officials have confirmed that this is accurate.
The assassination was set for Oct. 7, 1959, but it was completely botched. Accounts differ. One former CIA official said that the 22-year-old Saddam lost his nerve and began firing too soon, killing Qasim's driver and only wounding Qasim in the shoulder and arm. Darwish told UPI that one of the assassins had bullets that did not fit his gun and that another had a hand grenade that got stuck in the lining of his coat.
"It bordered on farce," a former senior U.S. intelligence official said. But Qasim, hiding on the floor of his car, escaped death, and Saddam, whose calf had been grazed by a fellow would-be assassin, escaped to Tikrit, thanks to CIA and Egyptian intelligence agents, several U.S. government officials said.
Saddam then crossed into Syria and was transferred by Egyptian intelligence agents to Beirut, according to Darwish and former senior CIA officials. While Saddam was in Beirut, the CIA paid for Saddam's apartment and put him through a brief training course, former CIA officials said. The agency then helped him get to Cairo, they said.
One former U.S. government official, who knew Saddam at the time, said that even then Saddam "was known as having no class. He was a thug -- a cutthroat."
In Cairo, Saddam was installed in an apartment in the upper class neighborhood of Dukki and spent his time playing dominos in the Indiana Café, watched over by CIA and Egyptian intelligence operatives, according to Darwish and former U.S. intelligence officials.
One former senior U.S. government official said: "In Cairo, I often went to Groppie Café at Emad Eldine Pasha Street, which was very posh, very upper class. Saddam would not have fit in there. The Indiana was your basic dive."
But during this time Saddam was making frequent visits to the American Embassy where CIA specialists such as Miles Copeland and CIA station chief Jim Eichelberger were in residence and knew Saddam, former U.S. intelligence officials said.
Saddam's U.S. handlers even pushed Saddam to get his Egyptian handlers to raise his monthly allowance, a gesture not appreciated by Egyptian officials since they knew of Saddam's American connection, according to Darwish. His assertion was confirmed by former U.S. diplomat in Egypt at the time.
In February 1963 Qasim was killed in a Baath Party coup. Morris claimed recently that the CIA was behind the coup, which was sanctioned by President John F. Kennedy, but a former very senior CIA official strongly denied this.
"We were absolutely stunned. We had guys running around asking what the hell had happened," this official said.
"The target suffered a terminal illness before a firing squad in Baghdad." --CIA officer testifying to US Senate hearing, after CIA aided Ba'th Party coup overthrew Iraqi Prime Minister Abdel Kassem, 1963
But the agency quickly moved into action. Noting that the Baath Party was hunting down Iraq's communist, the CIA provided the submachine gun-toting Iraqi National Guardsmen with lists of suspected communists who were then jailed, interrogated, and summarily gunned down, according to former U.S. intelligence officials with intimate knowledge of the executions.
Many suspected communists were killed outright, these sources said. Darwish told UPI that the mass killings, presided over by Saddam, took place at Qasr al-Nehayat, literally, the Palace of the End.
A former senior U.S. State Department official told UPI: "We were frankly glad to be rid of them. You ask that they get a fair trial? You have to get kidding. This was serious business."
A former senior CIA official said: "It was a bit like the mysterious killings of Iran's communists just after Ayatollah Khomeini came to power in 1979. All 4,000 of his communists suddenly got killed."
British scholar Con Coughlin, author of "Saddam: King of Terror," quotes Jim Critchfield, then a senior Middle East agency official, as saying the killing of Qasim and the communists was regarded "as a great victory." A former long-time covert U.S. intelligence operative and friend of Critchfield said: "Jim was an old Middle East hand. He wasn't sorry to see the communists go at all. Hey, we were playing for keeps."
Saddam, in the meantime, became head of al-Jihaz a-Khas, the secret intelligence apparatus of the Baath Party.
The CIA/Defense Intelligence Agency relation with Saddam intensified after the start of the Iran-Iraq war in September of 1980. During the war, the CIA regularly sent a team to Saddam to deliver battlefield intelligence obtained from Saudi AWACS surveillance aircraft to aid the effectiveness of Iraq's armed forces, according to a former DIA official, part of a U.S. interagency intelligence group."

And the worst part is that all the power to power both sides (Left and Right) comes from the same place...Top sucks all the power from the bottom to the top then supplies the bottom with less power than was sucked from the bottom to the top and the excess power is lent to the bottom...The Top lives off the yield from the bottom...Right gets too strong? Then their power is cut and the left's power is increased...
Simplicity adds up to the multiplication of complexity which is then divided unequally to obtain the required yield of power the absolute capitalists at the top of the absolute capitalist hierarchy want to manipulate the Universe how they desire.

"A chemical plant which the US says is a key component in Iraq's chemical warfare arsenal was secretly built by Britain in 1985 behind the backs of the Americans, the Guardian can disclose. Documents show British ministers knew at the time that the £14m plant, called Falluja 2, was likely to be used for mustard and nerve gas production.
Senior officials recorded in writing that Saddam Hussein was actively gassing his opponents and that there was a "strong possibility" that the chlorine plant was intended by the Iraqis to make mustard gas. At the time, Saddam was known to be gassing Iranian troops in their thousands in the Iran-Iraq war.
But ministers in the then Thatcher government none the less secretly gave financial backing to the British company involved, Uhde Ltd, through insurance guarantees. Paul Channon, then trade minister, concealed the existence of the chlorine plant contract from the US administration, which was pressing for controls on such exports."
A company of Thyssenkrupp technologies...
ThyssenKrupp AG is a very large German industrial conglomerate, with about 184,000 employees. The corporation consists of 670 single companies worldwide. It mainly operates in the steel industry, but also has interests in automotives, elevators, ship-building and marine services. The company is the result of the 1999 merger of Thyssen AG and Krupp
Fritz Thyssen (November 9, 1873 - February 8, 1951) was a German industrialist associated with the Nazi Party of Adolf Hitler.
On October 20, 1942, the US Alien Property Custodian, under the "Trading With the Enemy Act," seized the shares of the Union Banking Corporation (UBC), of which Prescott Bush was a director and shareholder. The largest shareholder was E. Roland Harriman. (Bush was also the managing partner of Brown Brothers Harriman, a leading Wall Street investment firm.)
The UBC was established to send American capital to Germany to finance the reorganization of its industry under the Nazis. Their leading German partner was the notorious Nazi industrialist Fritz Thyssen, who wrote a book admitting much of this called "I Paid Hitler."
Among the companies financed was the Silesian-American Corporation, which was also managed by Prescott Bush, and by his father-in-law George Herbert Walker, who supplied Dub-a-Ya with his name. The company was vital in supplying coal to the Nazi war industry. It too was seized as a Nazi-front on November 17, 1942. The largest company Bush's UBC helped finance was the German Steel Trust, responsible for between one-third and one-half of Nazi iron and explosives.
Prescott Bush was also a director of the Harriman Fifteen Corporation, (this one owned largely by Roland's brother, Averell Harriman), which owned about a third of the Consolidated Silesian Steel Corporation, the rest owned by Friedrich Flick, (a member of Himmler's "Circle of Friends" who donated to the S.S.).
Republican Presidential candidate Bush's great-grandfather, Bert Walker, helped organize the Harriman investment in the Hamburg-America Line of ships, of which grandfather Prescott became a director. It was seized on August 28, 1942 because it was used to give free passage to Nazi propaganda and propagandists, and had earlier shipped guns to the Nazi's private armies to assist their takeover of Germany."
"Brown Brothers Harriman & Co. is the oldest and largest partnership bank in the United States."
"Harriman Bank was the main Wall Street connection for German companies and the varied U.S. financial interests of Fritz Thyssen...
Its initial partners were:
Prescott S. Bush - Skull and Bones
Louis Curtis - Skull and Bones
W. Averell Harriman - Skull and Bones
E. Roland Harriman - Skull and Bones

John Forbes Kerry member of Skull and Bones 1966...Both were at Yale together for a one year overlap...dual manchurian candidates...Millions and millions and billions of worker drones supplying the top with the power required to power the spectacle are completely oblivious. As oblivious as bugs flying into a zapper...
"The Krupp family, a prominent 400-year-old German dynasty from Essen, have become famous for their steel production and for their manufacture of ammunition and armaments. The family business, known as Friedrich Krupp AG Hoesch-Krupp in modern times, merged with Thyssen AG in 1999 to form ThyssenKrupp AG, a large industrial conglomerate. Krupp has passed into the popular lexicon of modern German, meaning strong as a reference to the quality of their steel."
"Krupp and his father were initially hostile to the Nazi Party. However, in 1930 they were persuaded by Hjalmar Schacht that Adolf Hitler would destroy the trade unions and the political left in Germany. Schacht also pointed out that a Hitler government would considerably increase expenditure on armaments. In 1933 Krupp joined the Schutzstaffel (SS)."
After Hitler came to power in Germany in 1933, the Krupp works became the center for German rearmament. In 1943, by a special order from Hitler, the company reverted into a family holding, and Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach (1907 - 67), son of Gustav Krupp, took over the management. After Germany's defeat, when Gustav proved incapable of going on trial, the U.S. Nuremberg Military Tribunal convicted Alfried as a war criminal (in the so-called "Krupp Trial") for his company's use of slave labor. It sentenced him to 12 years imprisonment and ordered him to sell 75% of his holdings. In 1951, as the Cold War developed and no buyer came forward, the authorities released him, and in 1953 he resumed control of the firm.
In 1999 the Krupp Group merged with its largest competitor, Thyssen AG; the combined company — ThyssenKrupp AG, became Germany's fifth-largest firm and one of the largest steel-producers in the world.
Past Arguments Don't Square With Current Iran Policy
By Dafna Linzer
Washington Post Staff Writer

"Lacking direct evidence, Bush administration officials argue that Iran's nuclear program must be a cover for bomb-making. Vice President Cheney recently said, "They're already sitting on an awful lot of oil and gas. Nobody can figure why they need nuclear as well to generate energy."
"Yet Cheney, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld and outgoing Deputy Secretary Paul Wolfowitz held key national security posts when the Ford administration made the opposite argument 30 years ago."
"Ford's team endorsed Iranian plans to build a massive nuclear energy industry, but also worked hard to complete a multibillion-dollar deal that would have given Tehran control of large quantities of plutonium and enriched uranium -- the two pathways to a nuclear bomb. Either can be shaped into the core of a nuclear warhead, and obtaining one or the other is generally considered the most significant obstacle to would-be weapons builders."
"Iran, a U.S. ally then, had deep pockets and close ties to Washington. U.S. companies, including Westinghouse and General Electric, scrambled to do business there."
""I don't think the issue of proliferation came up," Henry A. Kissinger, who was Ford's secretary of state, said in an interview for this article."
"The U.S. offer, details of which appear in declassified documents reviewed by The Washington Post, did not include the uranium enrichment capabilities Iran is seeking today. But the United States tried to accommodate Iranian demands for plutonium reprocessing, which produces the key ingredient of a bomb."
"After balking initially, President Gerald R. Ford signed a directive in 1976 offering Tehran the chance to buy and operate a U.S.-built reprocessing facility for extracting plutonium from nuclear reactor fuel. The deal was for a complete "nuclear fuel cycle" -- reactors powered by and regenerating fissile materials on a self-sustaining basis.
That is precisely the ability the current administration is trying to prevent Iran from acquiring today."
"The two faces of Rumsfeld
2000: director of a company which wins $200m contract to sell nuclear reactors to North Korea
2002: declares North Korea a terrorist state, part of the axis of evil and a target for regime change
Friday May 9, 2003
Donald Rumsfeld, the US defence secretary, sat on the board of a company which three years ago sold two light water nuclear reactors to North Korea - a country he now regards as part of the "axis of evil" and which has been targeted for regime change by Washington because of its efforts to build nuclear weapons.
Mr Rumsfeld was a non-executive director of ABB, a European engineering giant based in Zurich, when it won a $200m (£125m) contract to provide the design and key components for the reactors. The current defence secretary sat on the board from 1990 to 2001, earning $190,000 a year. He left to join the Bush administration."
"The Swedish-Swiss firm Asea Brown Boveri (ABB) was seen as “a paradigm of European capitalism at its best.” In 2002, it suddenly turned into a “Swedish version of Enron.” The company revealed that after stepping down from his post, former CEO Percy Barnevik cashed in a secret $148 million severance package for himself and his successor Goran Lindahl.

ABB is a combination of Allmänna Svenska Elektriska Aktiebolaget (ASEA) and Brown Boveri Ltd.

"The essential claim of sophistry is that the actual logical validity of an argument is irrelevant (if not non-existent); it is only the ruling of the audience which ultimately determines whether a conclusion is considered "true" or not. By appealing to the prejudices and emotions of the judges, one can garner favorable treatment for one's side of the argument and cause a factually false position to be ruled true."--Sophistry A.K.A Democracy or Truth by Popular delusion/consensus
You all voted to commit mass suicide.
The lies that you have all religiously believed in all your lives are about to self destruct...
Like the Matrix...Imagine what would happen if the movie ended with everyone waking up in their little energy sucking pods...
That's how this movie is going to end unfortunately...If you don't comprehend the system which is the primary lie or cause of all the other lies which are effects then all you will do is fight or be mesmerized by the effects...
When the inevitable systemic hyperdeflationary implosion of the debt supply takes place the effects it produces will be beyond your current abilities to comprehend...
Of all the resources devoted to your social engineering the vast majority is devoted to preventing you from comprehending the system...
And there is no way to make a person comprehend something they refuse to or in some cases can't...
No amount of speculation trumps truth...While you are all being mesmerized wondering what is going on...
This bubble pictured below that is not some fantasy but is required to keep inflating by the required amount to power the continued existence of the fantasy that has you all mesmerized...Has almost reached maximum potential and is about to implode...And then you all will wake up from the daydream into the nightmare and wonder what is going on and who are the culprits and the culprits are you all...The employees...It's all of you existing on a daily basis which contributes to the growth of that bubble and your ability to sustain its continued growth is reaching the maximum potential...
You were all born into the lie...so were your parents...and those before them...and so on and so forth going back 1000's of years...
It's just now so close to the reaching of maximum potential of this latest iteration and the shattering of the delusion that you all are beginning to catch brief glimpses of the Nightmare...
Once it shatters you will be hit full force...And the below debt inflationary self delusional bubble is of such a monumental magnitude that the psychological shock will finish most of you off...blow you out like candles...
All this entertainment that you currently are fascinated by will be rendered irrelevant...
And the trail of 9-11 leads to the chosen ones to take the fall...And they are just drones who have no Idea who is in control...where the top is...or what is going on...
Once the trail is followed it will run cold as the loose ends are tied up...The top can see you all coming long before you see the destroyers sent to tie up the loose ends...
The top controls all the intelligence agencies on Earth...
And the top is only hiding Truth...
You don't need to find truth you need to know truth...
If you don't know truth...You could easily spend your entire life thinking something irrelevant is revelant or something relevant is irrelevant...
Like the below chart...There is not much time left to speculate how much time is left to speculate...or which group of internationally respected expert speculators are the most entertaining speculators...
The top are defeatable...You have to know how...
There is never a lasting victory over Lies (Evil) and the war against Truth (GOD) has no exit strategy and always ends in defeat...
As soon as you think you have obtained a lasting victory over Lies...You are fighting truth at that point...
The time you have to reverse that choice runs out very quick since the longer you fight truth the greater the magnitude of the inevitable defeat...
The above bubble began inflating greater than previous inflation to maximum potential in 1944...Bretton Woods...
The prevous bubble basically began inflating less than previous inflation to maximum potential from 1929 to 1944...The observation of deflation.
A hyperdeflationary implosion from 1929 to 1933 followed by the 1933 to 1945 bankruptcy reorganization of the now 314 Year old global system...
I don't think you know much about the top...
Or how powerful one Human Being that knows Truth is especially if they abuse their power to gain power over others...
Below these two drones did not know truth...But they received special social engineering to allow them to be employed as Leaders...One a Violent absolute capitalist and the other a Gradual absolute capitalist...
Hitler was basically a specially socially engineered drone installed as leader of a sub Hierarchy called Germany 1933-1944
Roosevelt was basically a specially socially engineered drone installed as leader of a sub Hierarchy called the USA 1933-1944
Gradual absolute capitalists are more benevolent and less malevolent...They can break free of the programing on their own...
Violent absolute capitalists are less benevolent and more malevolent and typically self destruct along with all their followers...
The Kennedy brothers are examples of drones that began breaking free of the programing and then were fired...
The executive of the USA sub hierarchy is currently in the hands of Violent absolute capitalist drones...Same as in Israel...
It is a certainty that those two sub hierarchial assets are going to implode and transform into unfundable liabilities and self liquidate/be liquidated...
The Great depression in the USA was a fairy tale compared to the General break down crisis or implosion to rubble that Germany went through 1933-1945.
When a global economic system collapses...the kid gloves fly off...
Human beings are not emotional animals...And it's not human nature...you have been engineered to think it's human nature...Emotions are the servants of Human Beings but the masters of animals...
The top attacks your emotions to manipulate you...
You have to know when you are being manipulated...That is how you defeat them...
And Humanity only has to reproduce quicker than it dies to sustain the existence of Humanity...GOD does not have to be defeated to accomplish this simple task...
It's why there is around 6000+ years of recorded history you all maybe know of a few centuries and what you know is mostly lies written by the winners...
The losers are dead or if they made a record it's ignored...It's incompatible with standard popular delusions...
Like most of what I post...It's incompatible with all your cherished delusions and makes it look like there is no hope...
Well there is no hope...
Hope did not get us here...reproduction did...
It's one of the constants the top can't toy with much or they could destroy themselves...
Free will also...Since if the top does not give you a choice you will resist...
All life has one desire that it can not escape...To exist as long as possible...It's the only desire of a flower...
