Since the plot by LBJ and the CIA to assassinate JFK was never unraveled, we may never see 911 figured out either; but we may have more important issues to deal with. The first thot that crossed my mind when the radio told me JFK had been shot was that there goes Goldwater's chance at election. i immediately realized the LBJ would be able to use the emotionality of that event to promote the liberal policies of JFK far beyond anything that JFK himself could have done.
Goldwater's question still remains, as he looked the cost of these entitlements and the cost of the Vietnam war, wanting to know where the money would come from. 9 trillion later, the question still hangs out there, and over the heads of the boomers as they start to retire. The boomers may have some questions about whether there will be enuf money to fund their retirement, but the younger generations, stupid and crazy as they are, are right about one thing. There wont be any left for them.
The 1973 OPEC oil embargo was the first clue as to why. Later, presidential candidate John Anderson tried to tell Americans that they needed to find a way to reduce oil imports. And got nowhere. Neither did anyone after him. Soon as the price of gas stabilized, Detroit sold Americans on gas hog SUVs in order to have the profits to meet the costs of their corporate entitlement programs, abandoning the effort to produce fuel efficient vehicles, and thereby loosing the global auto market to Japan.
But where was the SUV fuel to come from? Machiavelli:"When a republic, [the USA] has an intractable problem [supply of oil], it will find a man of flawed character [GW Bush], to do something [Station troops in Iraq to try to install a puppet government and seize the oil]. But then, after the fait accompli [the new government and oil contracts with the transnationals], it will discover his faults [lots to choose from], and send him away, while they get to enjoy the fruits of the new status quo.
Only problem is, the iron fist has not worked out so well because Bush & the Neocons didnt also know how to use the velvet glove. They had a plan for the war, but none for the peace. The plan for the war begins with the false flag event known as 911, which empowered them with a mandate to go into the mid-East that they could not have gotten any other way. But given that Americans wanted to buy and drive SUVs, what other choice was there? Even if Americans chose to drive fuel efficient cars, other economies would continue to develop, buy cars, and drive the gas consumption up, which therefore pumped money into Arab oil.
And had the Arabs had the same mindless consumerism, that could have been handled. But the money was being used to indoctrinate kids and create the Jihadim, who were committing terrorism trying to expand Islam. And that was driving the up cost of insurance for the high rises of the power elites all over the world. Attacks on other high rises in the old world made an attack on the towers in the new look credible. That some Arabs would claim responsibility, while others danced in the streets, added to the myth.
But now, some boomers who were in positions to know something on 9/11/01 are starting to retire, and now that their careers are no longer on the line, are coming out saying what they know about it. And those who remain, like in the NIST, aware that has Bush lost the power to protect them, and that no GOP candidate will replace him with any interest in maintaining the cover up, are beginning to hedge their bets by being ambiguous in their support of the official 911 report.
Machiavelli:"Then, after the new status quo, they will select a leader of impeccable character [Hillary]." She can reopen 911 hearings, discover this vast conspiracy, then, as Mach says, "go to the offended parties [the Iraqis], and say that [she is] sorry what that bad man [Bush] did, but we are where we are, and maybe we can work something out. "
So, what is it that will be worked out? Well, of course, the Kurds have oil, and they, of all those in the MidEast, are the most grateful to the USA, who will turn a blind eye to the efforts of the Kurds to recover their ancient homelands in Turkey. And to help justify that aggression the USA has brought up the Armenian issue, as if the Turks have always been horrible monsters. Which is the generally accepted opinion in the region by virtually everyone who is not Turk.
And after the Kurds have liberated their brethren in Turkey, then they will turn their attention to Iran. And like Iraq, that nation also has lots of tribal homelands, each of which will want its own piece of the pie. They will be, as they have been already, so busy fighting each other, that global terrorism by the Jihadim to expand Islam will loose funding and collapse.
This whole Machiavellian process is messy, but it has always worked.
