This article is a summary of an excellent post by Mr. Paul Craig Roberts, released on LewRockwell.com:
Dwight D. Eisenhower, the US President is now called a ‘conspiracy theorist’. But is that justified?
By January 17, 1961, Eisenhower in his farewell speech issued his warning to the American People, though it was already late. By that time, Cold Warriors had hooks after the end of WW II into the American taxpayer for 15 years, and there was a replacement by the military-industrial complex replacing the old “mom and apple pie” phrasing as the US interest.
This is a quote from President Dwight D. Eisenhower:
“This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence — economic, political, even spiritual — is felt in every city, every statehouse, every office of the federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society. In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military–industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals so that security and liberty may prosper together.”
When Eisenhower did his farewell speech, the military-industrial complex and armaments industries were spread all over the country. The chairmen of Senate military appropriations subcommittees and armed services committees and the Chairman of the Houser were already dependent on the contributions of the military-industrial complex.
The Cold War proved to be a profitable business serving many, and so it lasted long. There was no threat from Europe. Even with the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union, it was replaced with War on Terror and Muslim Threat that took over from the Cold War. Despite thirty years war attacks and warnings, the superpower of the world could hardly dispose only few terrorists.
John F. Kennedy, Eisenhower’s successor, realized that military-security complex was a threat, but this threat was underestimated and paid for it as he stood up to the military-security complex.
Conspiracies are real. There are many more than people are actually aware. Most government conspiracies are documented heavily by governments supporting the official records demonstrating conspiracies that are openly available to the public.
Mr. Craig Roberts puts it as follows: “The charge, “conspiracy theory,” is used to prevent investigation.” However, the number of false flag attacks in recent years cannot be denied any longer. In his article, Mr. Roberts provides an overview and discusses the important ones that dominated mainstream media lately.
Generally, an observant person with little fair education can easily recognize a false flag attack. Nevertheless, few people pay attention to the the official media sayings, and the media does not investigate any more, but simply come up with questions but are mere repeats of the official story. Thus, only few realize that really happened, and when such people open their mouths they are referred to as “conspiracy theorists.”
To the Western People: if you are keen to walk down the cities streets without being demanded to present identity papers, or if you want to express your opinion or wish to discuss your personal affairs such that it is not recorded by the NSA, if you wish to act or protest the violence, it is time people live in the freedom achieved in the West. It is time people stand for the truth to enjoy freedom as there will no freedom minus truth.
