    Message 1 of 2 , Jan 4, 2002
      It's the oldest trick in the book, dating back to Roman times;
      creating the enemies you need.

      In 70 BC, an ambitious minor politician and extremely wealthy man,
      Marcus Licineus Crassus, wanted to rule Rome. Just to give you an
      idea of what sort of man Crassus really was, he is credited with
      invention of the fire brigade. But in Crassus' version, his fire-
      fighting slaves would race to the scene of a burning building
      whereupon Crassus would offer to buy it on the spot for a tiny
      fraction of it's worth. If the owner sold, Crassus' slaves would put
      out the fire. If the owner refused to sell, Crassus allowed the
      building to burn to the ground. By means of this device, Crassus
      eventually came to be the largest single private land holder in Rome,
      and used some of his wealth to help back Julius Caesar against

      In 70 BC Rome was still a Republic, which placed very strict limits
      on what Rulers could do, and more importantly NOT do. But Crassus had
      no intentions of enduring such limits to his personal power, and
      contrived a plan.

      Crassus seized upon the slave revolt led by Spartacus in order to
      strike terror into the hearts of Rome, whose garrison Spartacus had
      already defeated in battle. But Spartacus had no intention of
      marching on Rome itself, a move he knew to be suicidal. Spartacus and
      his band wanted nothing to do with the Roman empire and had planned
      from the start merely to loot enough money from their former owners
      in the Italian countryside to hire a mercenary fleet in which to sail
      to freedom.

      Sailing away was the last thing Crassus wanted Spartacus to do. He
      needed a convenient enemy with which to terrorize Rome itself for his
      personal political gain. So Crassus bribed the mercenary fleet to
      sail without Spartacus, then positioned two Roman legions in such a
      way that Spartacus had no choice but to march on Rome.

      Terrified of the impending arrival of the much-feared army of
      gladiators, Rome declared Crassus Praetor. Crassus then crushed
      Spartacus' army and even though Pompeii took the credit, Crassus was
      elected Consul of Rome the following year.

      With this maneuver, the Romans surrendered their Republican form of
      government. Soon would follow the first Triumvirate, consisting of
      Crassus, Pompeii, and Julius Caesar, followed by the reign of the god-
      like Emperors of Rome.

      The Romans were hoaxed into surrendering their Republic, and
      accepting the rule of Emperors.

      Julius Caesar's political opponent, Cicero, for all his literary
      accomplishments, played the same games in his campaign against Julius
      Caesar, claiming that Rome was falling victim to an internal "vast
      right wing" conspiracy in which any expressed desire for legislative
      limits on government was treated as suspicious behavior. Cicero, in
      order to demonstrate to the Romans just how unsafe Rome has become
      hired thugs to cause as much disturbance as possible, and campaigned
      on a promise to end the internal strife if elected and granted
      extraordinary powers.

      What Cicero only dreamed of, Adolph Hitler succeeded in doing.
      Elected Chancellor of Germany, Hitler, like Crassus, had no intention
      of living with the strict limits to his power imposed by German law.
      Unlike Cicero, Hitler's thugs were easy to recognize; they all wore
      the same brown shirts. But their actions were no different than those
      of their Roman predecessors. They staged beatings, set fires, caused
      as much trouble as they could, while Hitler made speeches promising
      that he could end the crime wave of subversives and terrorism if he
      was granted extraordinary powers.

      Then the Reichstagg burned down; a staged terrorist attack.

      The Germans were hoaxed into surrendering their Republic, and
      accepting the total rule of Der Fuhrer.

      The state-sponsored schools will never tell you this, but governments
      routinely rely on hoaxes to sell their agendas to an otherwise
      reluctant public. The Romans accepted the Emperors and the Germans
      accepted Hitler not because they wanted to, but because the carefully
      crafted illusions of threat appeared to leave no other choice.

      Our government too uses hoaxes to create the illusion that We The
      People have no choice but the direction the government wishes us to
      go in.

      In 1898, Joseph Pulitzer's New York World and William Randolph
      Hearst's New York Journal were arguing for American intervention in
      Cuba. Hearst is reported to have dispatched a photographer to Cuba to
      photograph the coming war with Spain. When the photographer asked
      just what war that might be, Hearst is reported to have replied, "You
      take the photographs, and I will provide the war". Hearst was true to
      his word, as his newspaper published stories of great atrocities
      being committed against the Cuban people, most of which turned out to
      be complete fabrications.

      On the night of February 15, 1898, the USS Maine, lying in Havana
      harbor in a show of US resolve to protect her interests, exploded
      violently. Captain Sigsbee, the commander of the Maine, urged that no
      assumptions of enemy attack be made until there was a full
      investigation of the cause of the explosion. For this, Captain
      Sigsbee was excoriated in the press for "refusing to see the
      obvious". The Atlantic Monthly declared flat out that to suppose the
      explosion to be anything other than a deliberate act by Spain
      was "completely at defiance of the laws of probability".

      Under the slogan "Remember the Maine", Americans went to war with
      Spain, eventually winning the Phillipines (and annexing Hawaii along
      the way).

      In 1975, an investigation led by Admiral Hyman Rickover examined the
      data recovered from a 1911 examination of the wreck and concluded
      that there had been no evidence of an external explosion. The most
      likely cause of the sinking was a coal dust explosion in a coal
      bunker imprudently located next to the ship's magazines. Captain
      Sigsbee's caution had been well founded.

      President Franklin Delano Roosevelt needed a war. He needed the fever
      of a major war to mask the symptoms of a still deathly ill economy
      struggling back from the Great Depression (and mutating towards
      Socialism at the same time). Roosevelt wanted a war with Germany to
      stop Hitler, but despite several provocations in the Atlantic, the
      American people, still struggling with that troublesome economy, were
      opposed to any wars. Roosevelt violated neutrality with lend lease,
      and even ordered the sinking of several German ships in the Atlantic,
      but Hitler refused to be provoked.

      Roosevelt needed an enemy, and if America would not willingly attack
      that enemy, then one would have to be maneuvered into attacking
      America, much as Marcus Licinius Crassus has maneuvered Spartacus
      into attacking Rome.

      The way open to war was created when Japan signed the tripartite
      agreement with Italy and Germany, with all parties pledging mutual
      defense to each other. Whereas Hitler would never declare war on the
      United States no matter the provocation, the means to force Japan to
      do so were readily at hand.

      The first step was to place oil and steel embargoes on Japan, using
      Japan's wars on the Asian mainland as a reason. This forced Japan to
      consider seizing the oil and mineral rich regions in Indonesia. With
      the European powers militarily exhausted by the war in Europe, the
      United States was the only power in the Pacific able to stop Japan
      from invading the Dutch East Indies, and by moving the Pacific fleet
      from San Diego to Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, Roosevelt made a pre-emptive
      strike on that fleet the mandatory first step in any Japanese plan to
      extend it's empire into the "southern resource area".

      Roosevelt boxed in Japan just as completely as Crassus had boxed in
      Spartacus. Japan needed oil. They had to invade Indonesia to get it,
      and to do that they first had to remove the threat of the American
      fleet at Pearl Harbor. There never really was any other course open
      to them.

      To enrage the American people as much as possible, Roosevelt needed
      the first overt attack by Japan to be as bloody as possible,
      appearing as a sneak attack much as the Japanese had done to the
      Russians. From that moment up until the attack on Pearl Harbor
      itself, Roosevelt and his associates made sure that the commanders in
      Hawaii, General Short and Admiral Kimmel, were kept in the dark as
      much as possible about the location of the Japanese fleet and it's
      intentions, then later scapegoated for the attack. (Congress recently
      exonerated both Short and Kimmel, posthumously restoring them to
      their former ranks).

      But as the Army board had concluded at the time, and subsequent de-
      classified documents confirmed, Washington DC knew the attack was
      coming, knew exactly where the Japanese fleet was, and knew where it
      was headed.

      On November 29th, Secretary of State Hull showed United Press
      reporter Joe Leib a message with the time and place of the attack,
      and the New York Times in it's special 12/8/41 Pearl Harbor edition,
      on page 13, reported that the time and place of the attack had been
      known in advance!

      The much repeated claim that the Japanese fleet maintained radio
      silence on it's way to Hawaii was a lie. Among other intercepts still
      held in the Archives of the NSA is the UNCODED message sent by the
      Japanese tanker Shirya stating, "proceeding to a position 30.00 N,
      154.20 E. Expect to arrive at that point on 3 December." (near HI)

      President Lyndon Johnson wanted a war in Vietnam. He wanted it to
      help his friends who owned defense companies to do a little business.
      He needed it to get the Pentagon and CIA to quit trying to invade
      Cuba. And most of all, he needed a provocation to convince the
      American people that there was really "no other choice".

      On August 5, 1964, newspapers across America reported "renewed
      attacks" against American destroyers operating in Vietnamese waters,
      specifically the Gulf of Tonkin. The official story was that North
      Vietnamese torpedo boats launched an "unprovoked attack" on the USS
      Maddox while it was on "routine patrol".

      The truth is that USS Maddox was involved in aggressive intelligence
      gathering in coordination with actual attacks by South Vietnam and
      the Laotian Air Force against targets in North Vietnam. The truth is
      also that there was no attack by torpedo boats against the USS
      Maddox. Captain John J. Herrick, the task force commander in the
      Gulf, cabled Washington DC that the report was the result of an "over-
      eager" sonarman who had picked up the sounds of his own ship's screws
      and panicked. But even with this knowledge that the report was false,
      Lyndon Johnson went on national TV that night to announce the
      commencement of air strikes against North Vietnam, "retaliation" for
      an attack that had never occurred.

      President George Bush wanted a war in Iraq. Like Crassus, George Bush
      is motivated by money. Specifically oil money. But with the OPEC
      alliance failing to keep limits on oil production in the Mideast, the
      market was being glutted with oil pumped from underneath Iraq, which
      sat over roughly 1/3 of the oil reserves of the entire region.

      George wanted a war to stop that flow of oil, to keep prices (and
      profits) from falling any further than they already had. But like
      Roosevelt, he needed the "other side" to make the first move.

      Iraq had long been trying to acquire greater access to the Persian
      Gulf, and felt limited confined a narrow strip of land along Kuwait's
      northern border, which placed Iraqi interests in close proximity with
      hostile Iran. George Bush, who had been covertly arming Iraq during
      its war with Iran, sent word via April Glaspie that the United States
      would not intervene if Saddam Hussein grabbed a larger part of
      Kuwait. Saddam fell for the bait and invaded.

      Of course, Americans were not about to send their sons and daughters
      to risk their lives for petroleum products. So George Bush arranged a
      hoax, using a public relations firm which has grown rich on taxpayer
      money by being most industrious and creative liars! The PR firm
      concocted a monumental fraud in which the daughter of the Kuwaiti
      Ambassador to the United States, went on TV pretending to be a nurse,
      and related a horror story in which Iraqi troops looted the
      incubators from a Kuwaiti hospital, leaving the premature babies on
      the cold floor to die. The media, part of the swindle from the start,
      never bothered asking why the "nurse" didn't just pick the babies up
      and wrap them in blankets or something.

      Enraged by the incubator story, Americans supported operation Desert
      Storm, which never removed Saddam Hussein from power but which did
      take Kuwait's oil off of the market for almost 2 years and limited
      Iraq's oil exports to this very day. That our sons and daughters came
      home with serious and lingering medical illnesses was apparently not
      too great a price to pay for increased oil profits.

      Following the victory in Iraq, yet another war appeared to be in the
      offering in the mineral rich regions of Bosnia. Yet again, a hoax was
      used to create support for military action.

      The above photo of Fikret Alic staring through a barbed wire fence,
      was used to "prove" the existance of modern day "Concentration
      Camps". As the headline of "Belsen 92" indicates, all possible
      associations with the Nazi horrors were made to sell the necessity of
      sending yet more American troops into someone else's nation.

      But when German Journalists went to Trnopolje, the site of the
      supposed Concentration Camp. to film a documentary, they discovered
      that the photo was a fake! The camp at Trnopolje was not a
      concentration camp but a refugee center. Nor was it surrounded by
      barbed wire. Careful examination of the original photo revealed that
      the photographer had shot the photo through a broken section of fence
      surrounding a tool shed. It was the photographer who was on the
      inside, shooting out at the refugees.

      Once again, Americans had been hoaxed into support of actions they
      might otherwise not have agreed with.

      While several American Presidents have willingly started wars for
      personal purposes, perhaps no President has ever carried it to the
      extreme that Bill Clinton has.

      Coincident with the expected public statement of Monica Lewinsky
      following her testimony, Bill Clinton ordered a cruise missile attack
      on Sudan and Afghanistan, claiming to have had irrefutable proof that
      bogeyman extraordinaire (and former Afghani ally) Osama Bin Ladin was
      creating terrorist chemical weapons there.

      Examination of the photos of the debris revealed none of the expected
      structures one would find in a laboratory that handled lethal weapons-
      grade materials. Assurances from the CIA that they had a positive
      soil test for biological weapons fell on their face when it was
      revealed that there had been no open soil anywhere near the pre-
      bombed facility. Sudan requested that international observers come
      test the remains of the factory for any signs of the nerve gas
      Clinton had insisted was there. None was found. The Sudanese plant
      was a harmless aspirin factory, and the owner has sued for damages.

      Later examination of the site hit in Afghanistan revealed it to be a

      Meanwhile, back in Kosovo, stories about genocide and atrocities were
      flooding the media (in time to distract from the Sudanese
      embarrassments), just as lurid and sensational and as it turns out
      often just as fictional as most of William Randolph Hearst's stories
      of atrocities against the Cubans.

      Again, the government and the media were hoaxing Americans. The above
      photo was shown on all the American networks, claiming to be one of
      Slobodan Milosovic's Migs, shot down while attacking civilians.
      Closer examination (click on the photo) shows it to be stenciled in

      Like Germany under Chancellor Hitler, there have been events in our
      nation which strike fear into the hearts of the citizens, such as the
      New York World Trade Tower bombing, the OK City Federal Building, and
      the Olympic Park bomb (nicely timed to divert the media from
      witnesses to the TWA 800 shoot down). The media has been very quick
      to blame such events on "radicals", "subversives", "vast right wing
      conspiracies", and other "enemies in our midst", no different than
      the lies used by Cicero and Hitler.

      But on closer examination, such "domestic terrorist" events do not
      appear to be what they are made out to be. The FBI had an informant
      inside the World Trade Tower bombers, Emad Salam, who offered to
      sabotage the bomb. The FBI told him "no". The so-called "hot bed" of
      white separatism at Elohim City, occasional home to Tim McVeigh in
      the weeks prior to the OK City bombing, was founded and is being run
      by an FBI informant!

      And nobody has ever really explained what this second Ryder truck was
      doing in a secret camp half way from Elohim City to Oklahoma City two
      weeks before the bombing.

      So, here we are today. Like the Romans of Crassus' and Cicero's time,
      or the Germans under a newly elected Hitler, we are being warned that
      a dangerous enemy threatens us, implacable, invisible, omnipresent,
      and invulnerable as long as our government is hamstrung by that silly
      old Bill of Rights. Already there have appeared articles debating
      whether or not "extraordinary measures" (i.e. torture) are not fully
      justified under certain circumstances such as those we are purported
      to face.

      As was the case in Rome and Germany, the government continues to
      plead with the public for an expansion of its power and authority,
      to "deal with the crisis".

      However, as Casio watch timers are paraded before the cameras, to the
      stentorian tones of the talking heads' constant dire warnings, it is
      legitimate to question just how real the crises is, and how much is
      the result of political machinations by our own leaders.

      Are the terrorists really a threat, or just hired actors with bombs
      and Casio watches, paid for by Cicero and given brown shirts to wear
      by Hitler?

      Is terrorism inside the United States really from outside, or is it a
      stage managed production, designed to cause Americans to believe they
      have no choice but to surrender the Republic and accept the
      totalitarian rule of a new emperor, or a new Fuhrer?

      Once lost, the Romans never got their Republic back. Once lost, the
      Germans never got their Republic back. In both cases, the nation had
      to totally collapse before freedom was restored to the people.

      Remember that when Crassus tells you that Sparticus approaches.

      Remember that when thugs in the streets act in a manner clearly
      designed to provoke the public fear.

      Remember that when the Reichstagg burns down
