In book two in our international thriller series The Orphan Trilogy we highlight the direct link many commentators and researchers are convinced exists between the Kosovo War and heroin.

 

They’d arranged to meet with an Omegan mole who worked in the Clinton administration. He was helping them with a new Omega Agency operation involving the Kosovo War, which had just broken out in Europe. Naylor and his cronies were seeking to use Kosovo as a transit route for Afghan heroin bound for EU countries. Despite the official news stories being circulated by mainstream media, Omega knew the extremely lucrative heroin trade was behind the war.The Orphan Factory 

 

The above excerpt from The Orphan Factory was inspired in part by a discussion rumored to have taken place at the 1996 Bilderberg Group conference in Toronto, Canada. Its confirmed elite attendees included David Rockefeller, Henry Kissinger and Margaret Thatcher, and the discussion was said to have ended with the decision to create the Kosovo War.

If true, we can only imagine how the discussion went…

Bilderberger #1 may have said in passing that another war was needed to support the Military Industrial Complex.

Bilderberger #2 may have mentioned that Kosovo had significant mineral reserves – since valued at more than 13 billion Euros – including silver, zinc, cobalt, lead, bauxite and lignite worth tapping into.

Bilderberger #3 may have replied that the value of those reserves paled into insignificance next to the value of oil reserves of Middle East countries, and the gold and diamond reserves of several African countries.

“Yeah, true, we gotta think big,” Bilderberger #4 may have added.

After some head scratching, Bilderberger #5 may have reminded his or her fellow Bilderbergers that Kosovo lay smack bang in the middle of the infamous Balkan Route through which billions of dollars of heroin passed annually into western Europe from Turkey, Iran and Afghanistan. And his or her associates may have quickly deduced that whilst the value of Kosovo’s mineral resources may not warrant going to war over, the value of its drug trade – then believed to be worth around US$300 billion – was something else entirely.

That imaginary discussion highlights one of the most disturbing conspiracy theories surrounding illicit drugs – in particular heroin and opium – and the disturbing role these drugs have played in recent wars.

The drug behind a hundred wars

Dope. Tar. White Nurse. Black Pearl. Hero. Big H. Snow. Boy. Junk. Smack.

These are just a few examples of the seemingly inexhaustible slang terms people use when referring to heroin. Some, like China White or Mexican Mud, reflect location; others, like Dragon or White Girl, reflect popular songs while most are simply insider terms for those in the know.

It’s worth noting the difference between heroin and opium because the two are often confused and because both are often referred to in the conflicts we wish to highlight – namely the Kosovo and the Afghanistan wars.

Opium comes from the opium poppy (also known as Papaver Somniferum in scientific circles), whereas heroin is a semi-synthetic opioid analgesic, not an opiate.

Most will be familiar with the Opium Wars that date back to the late 1830’s and involved Britain illegally trafficking opium into China and making enormous financial sums as a result.

What’s less known is that heroin has been a cause of many a conflict – between countries, tribes and drug cartels – since it was first produced on a commercial scale as a wonder drug in the late 1890’s.

 

The Kosovo War

The brief but bloody Kosovo War was fought over 1998-99 between the ruling Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) who, you may recall, received military support from NATO. Essentially, it was a conflict between the Orthodox Serbians and the Kosovo-Albanians.

One of the enduring images from the Kosovo War.

Armed with weapons smuggled in from Albania, the KLA attacked Yugoslav authorities in Kosovo, sparking a campaign of retribution by Serbs, which resulted in the confirmed deaths of many hundreds of KLA sympathizers – fighters and civilians – and a mass exodus of refugees.

NATO then lent its weight to the conflict by participating in an aerial bombardment of Yugoslavia, attracting widespread controversy and condemnation, and prompting more than a few conspiracy theories. Even China chipped in, claiming the US was flexing its military muscle and expanding its presence and influence in Europe.

Some critics of the NATO campaign, which occurred during President Bill Clinton’s tenure, even labeled it a diversionary tactic to deflect attention from Clinton’s recent embarrassing dalliance with Monica Lewinsky in the White House.

All of these accusations were met with denials by the Clinton Administration, although the denials rang hollow in the face of the UN Security Council’s refusal to sanction NATO’s aggressive military involvement in the conflict.

“How many wars do you want to have in your lifetime? How many bombs are you going to drop? I just think it looks like we’ve become a warrior nation … We are dropping bombs on crowded cities at night where old people and children are sleeping, and we’re watching it on CNN … What are we doing with all these wars? How are we safer? … You can’t use an anti-war platform to get elected. So maybe that explains why it’s so easy for us to go to war. Norman Solomon has written a book War Made Easy. Essentially he says, if the president of the United States wants a war, he can have one. I believe that totally. It’s very, very hard to dissent.”–Phil Donahue, interview on Piers Morgan Tonight that aired on CNN January 7, 2012

 

The heroin connection

It’s the role heroin played in the Kosovo War that has intrigued many independent researchers.

Kosovo lies in the center of the Balkan Route through which nearly all Afghan heroin (the world’s most popular variety) passes through on its way to greater Europe and beyond, including the United States. The extraordinary value of the Balkans’ drug trade has been estimated to be worth anywhere from US$500 billion to one trillion dollars annually.

File:Kosovo uranium NATO bombing1999.png

There’s speculation the Western-backed KLA was heavily involved in this profitable business, adding fuel to the theory that the desire to control heroin trafficking was the underlying cause of the Kosovo War.

Certainly, Kosovo Albanians are prime movers in the region’s illegal drug trade – second only to the Turkish mafia, according to US Drug Enforcement Agency officials who, in 2000, estimated that Kosovo Albanians controlled nearly half of Europe’s heroin. Those same officials said as much as 6 tonnes of heroin passed through the Balkan Route every month.

In an article by The Guardian dated March 13, 2000, columnist Maggie O’Kane said international agencies fighting the drug trade were warning that Kosovo had become “a smuggler’s paradise” and “Nato-led forces, struggling to keep the peace a year after the war, have no mandate to fight drug traffickers…who are running the Balkan route with complete freedom”.

In the same article, a former Yugoslav narcotics official described Kosovo as “the Colombia of Europe”. The official says, “The Kosovo mafia has been smuggling heroin since the mid-1980’s. But since the Kosovo War, they have come into their own.”

Perhaps the foremost authority on drug wars is Canadian economist Dr. Michel Chossudovsky, author of The New World Order, whose extensive commentaries clearly convey that “the expensive Yugoslav conflict” was “directly linked to the multi-billion drug war”.

Michel Chossudovsky

Dr. Chossudovsky.

In an exclusive interview dated June 30, 1999 in cannabisculture.com, Dr. Chossudovsky says, “Drugs serve political interests … They help finance covert intelligence operations … the Vietnam War, the generals in Haiti, the Contras, Colombian paramilitaries … Many groups are funded with drug money that serve geopolitical interests. And there is usually covert support provided by the CIA to these groups.

“It is well documented the KLA is financed by the drug trade. It also has links to the CIA, German intelligence and Islamic terrorist organizations. So Islamic terrorist organizations the West has labeled as its enemies are co-financing the KLA alongside NATO. It’s a totally absurd situation”.

Dr. Chossudovsky also alludes to drug profits being laundered to buy arms in post-war Kosovo.

 

Operation Enduring Freedom aka Operation Opium

Dr. Chossudovsky also believes heroin is a primary motivating factor in the war in Afghanistan – the war the American administration calls Operation Enduring Freedom. In an article published in RonPaulForums.com and dated June 25, 2013, he says, “Since the US-led invasion of Afghanistan in October 2001, the Golden Crescent opium trade has soared.”

In the same article, Dr. Chossudovsky says in the previous four years there was a surge in Afghan opium production. He quotes UNODC (the UN Office on Drugs and Crime) figures which reveal that poppy cultivation in Afghanistan in 2012 covered an area of more than 154,000 hectares; he also quotes a UNODC spokesperson as confirming in 2013 that opium production is heading toward record levels.

Dr. Chossudovsky is also extensively quoted in the GlobalResearch.com site, which provides some of the most credible, in depth research and reporting on the Afghan drug trade.

Afghan farmers collected raw opium in a poppy field.

Under the tell-all heading “The Spoils of War: Afghanistan’s Multibillion Dollar Heroin Trade”, Global Research carries yet another article by Dr. Chossudovsky. It was first published in May 2005. In it he states:

“Heroin is a multi-billion dollar business supported by powerful interests…One of the ‘hidden’ objectives of the war (in Afghanistan) was precisely to restore the CIA-sponsored drug trade to its historical levels and exert direct control over the drug routes.

“Immediately following the October 2001 invasion, Opium markets were restored. By early 2002, the opium price…was almost 10 times higher than in 2000.”

Readers are reminded that “prior to the Soviet-Afghan War (1979-1989) opium production in Afghanistan and Pakistan was directed to small regional markets” and “there was no local production of heroin.”

Dr. Chossudovsky claims “the Afghan narcotics economy was a carefully designed project of the CIA, supported by US foreign policy”.

History lends some weight to the doctor’s claims. Out of the chaos that followed the Soviet-Afghan War, the ruling Taliban decreed that opium production be significantly curbed. That ruling was followed by another ordering that opium cultivation cease totally.

There has been considerable speculation that America’s invasion of Afghanistan was prompted by this development. Whether true or not, one result of that military action is not in doubt: the opium ban was quickly lifted and Afghan opium production rapidly rose to record levels.

Of course, this could be passed off as coincidental. An innocent result of an invasion that saw Afghanistan’s war lords back in control and opium growth thriving once again. Indeed, that’s the official line and that’s how many perceive it.

However, if commentators and researchers are united about any one thing it’s that the CIA is inexorably linked to Afghanistan’s illicit drug trade and has been, in the words of one commentator, “since the agency funded Taliban fighters to oppose the Soviets”.

 

(Profiting from) The War on Drugs

The motivations for creating these drug wars, if indeed that’s what they are, is the massive profits the global elite can derive from their well-documented drug trafficking.

Which begs the question: why are drugs so profitable? Essentially, many argue, it’s because they are illegal. By making drugs a criminal enterprise, it creates an enormous black market economy where drugs fetch far greater prices than they would if legal.

Many authors and independent media outlets have repeatedly suggested the War on Drugs is a money-making scheme and doesn’t actually prevent drug usage or reduce the number of addicts. They point to countries like Portugal, the Netherlands and the Czech Republic, which have all decriminalized drug usage to varying degrees and have subsequently experienced a decrease in the amount of drug-related crime and a reduction in the incidence of drug addiction.

In an article dated January 23, 2014 and headed World leaders slam war on drugs as ‘a disaster’, CNBC comments that the “decades-long war on drugs has failed and the world’s lawmakers need to consider decriminalization”.

Former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan is quoted in the article as saying the War on Drugs “has been a disaster and has inflicted enormous harm … Drug use is not down. It’s time for a different approach. Drugs have destroyed many people, and the wrong government and policies have destroyed many people”.

Drug war casualties (above and below)…no end in sight.

Possibly interrelated to the theory that drugs are prohibited to fuel the highly profitable international drug trade, is the privatization of prisons that has occurred in America and throughout much of the Western world in recent decades. Something that started happening around the same time the War on Drugs began.

Privatized prisons could be viewed as an adjunct to the previous chapter, which covered secret prisons. In the West at least, these privately-owned, non-government facilities can’t be classified as secret prisons in that they are not off-the-grid or unknown to the government. However, according to conspiracy theorists, they are secretive in so far as they don’t disclose their true agendas.

Once prisons are privatized, they need prisoners to make a buck or they’ll go out of business. That’s the economic reality. Some critics of the privatized prisons business claim that it’s open to corruption and suggest that private companies running these prisons have been known to collaborate quietly with law enforcement officials to ensure their prisons are full of inmates.

The obvious candidates to target – after murderers, rapists and drug-pushers of course – are drug-users, according to those who promote this theory. If true, then the War on Drugs may also be a scam designed to put users in prison and keep them there.

Remember, it’s a fact that a large percentage of prisoners around the world have committed victimless crimes involving drugs. And like the War on Drugs itself, the privatized prison system is highly profitable.

Could it be this war and these privatized prisons are some kind of two-fold, money-making scheme of the elite? Or are we getting a bit paranoid here?

 Private prisons like this one need prisoners to make a buck.

“I’ve seen people I love die from this disease (drug addiction). Now we have a chance to at least demonstrate that this isn’t what people feel about this issue anymore … People don’t want drugs to be illegal anymore, they don’t want their heads of politicians buried in the sand.” –Russell Brand, from television interview on February 13, 2014 on the UK’s Channel 4.

 

If this entire conspiracy theory on drug wars is wrong, fictitious, over-egged or, heaven forbid, just plain loony, another scenario is very possible: this scenario is that drugs are simply one of the many fortuitous and spontaneous spoils of war, and while the global elite may not actually be starting wars to financially benefit from drug-trafficking they sure as hell do alright out of it.

Even in mineral-rich and oil-rich war-torn regions like the Middle East, illicit drugs and the huge profits to be made from them are a nice added bonus, wouldn’t you agree?

And even if there is no ulterior motive surrounding the War on Drugs – a very big IF – the bottom line is the drug prohibition program hasn’t remotely worked; the international drug trade is expanding, not contracting, and drug usage is increasing worldwide.

We don’t remotely support drug use. The horrors that illicit drugs inflict on individuals and on society in general are there for all to see.

However, the problem is one that may be with us forever because it does seem that drugs and profits cannot be separated, and history shows that where large profits are to be made, corruption flourishes.

Meanwhile, excuse us for one moment. It’s time for us to take our medication again!

 One of the recurring themes throughout The Orphan Trilogy is that the global elite will continue to profit any way they can. That often means orchestrating wars all over the planet. And to create wars there don’t need to be any genuine enemies, only perceived enemies. If enough citizens believe their national security’s in jeopardy then politicians who propose wars will receive the support they need.

Of course, the public are reliant on the media to inform them of the facts regarding potential threats. And therein lies the problem.

In early 2013, the world was told North Korea was on the verge of starting a nuclear war. This sparked a certain amount of fear worldwide while on social media reaction to the rumored nuclear threat bordered on something closer to hysteria.

Notwithstanding Kim Jong-un’s Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is a brutal regime that has committed untold human rights violations against its own people, it appeared then as now an unlikely threat to world peace. Despite the 25 million-strong rogue state having declared itself a nuclear power, it seemed in all probability to be just that – self-declared and nothing more. The vast majority of nuclear and regional experts agreed that North Korea’s arsenal amounted to only a handful of crude devices and they concluded the country was unlikely to have nuclear-armed missiles capable of reaching the United States.

Furthermore, the overwhelming consensus was that to become a true nuclear power, North Korean scientists would need a lot more bomb fuel than they had access to at that time.

Kim Jong Un Hasnt Been Seen for Weeks as Kerry, U.S. Confront North Korea Aggression

Kim Jong-un…Is he really a threat to the West?

Siegfried Hecker, an American nuclear scientist who has regularly been granted access to North Korea’s nuclear facilities, said the rogue nation lacked the materials to be a nuclear threat. Posting on the website of Stanford University’s Center for International Security and Cooperation in April 2013, Hecker said: “North Korea does not yet have much of a nuclear arsenal because it lacks fissile materials and has limited nuclear testing experience.”

Other similarly qualified commentators expressed near identical viewpoints. However, none of these expert opinions seem to have been taken into account by Western media outlets. Instead, most ran with the sensationalist angle that a nuclear war was a possibility. Some journalists even went so far as to mention the potential for World War Three by bringing China into the equation and assuming it would side with North Korea in any international conflict.

Less than a month or so later the news story had completely fizzled.

From what we can ascertain, the whole episode was essentially the media hyping up a decades old stand-off between North Korea and the West.

This brief but high profile news story drove us to question whether any wars have arisen from sensationalism or propaganda.

 

“Why else do you think we are permanently at war in various regions all over the world? And why is it the citizens of this country, one of the richest on earth, get poorer each year?”The Orphan Factory

 

Conventional wisdom suggests all international armed conflicts since WW2 were inevitable and the millions of soldiers and civilians who have been killed during this period were sacrificed for some greater good. Certainly that’s the commonly-held belief about conflicts Western nations – America and Britain in particular – have been involved in.

But is this really true?

If wars create vast sums of money for the global elite, is it possible the Soviets, Viet Cong and Muslims were, or are, also fabricated enemies of the West along with North Korea? Or at least exaggerated threats?

We also questioned whether there are enough natural enemies left in the 21st Century to organically lead to wars involving superpowers. After researching the history of false flag operations, we would have to say no. Otherwise, why would there be a need for any of these false flag attacks? If the purported aggressors were invading other nations in broad daylight then surely there’d be no need to fabricate anything.

Gulf War Photobox.jpg

The First Gulf War aka Operation Desert Storm…Another false flag op?

A false flag operation is basically the act of committing a terrorist event or an act of war and having others blamed for it. In recent times those others are usually oil-rich countries like Iraq, geographically or strategically important nations such as Cuba, or drug-abundant states like Afghanistan.

False flag terrorism is employed by governments and intelligence agencies all over the world. It is cleverly orchestrated propaganda designed to provoke specific reactions from the masses in the build-up to war. Sowing the seed, they call it, where – in agricultural terms – the ground is prepared for the harvest that will most assuredly follow. The harvest in this case being war, or more to the point, the spoils of war.

The powers-that-be understand that to create the appropriate atmosphere for war, it’s necessary to create within the general populace a hatred, fear or mistrust of others regardless of whether those others belong to a certain group of people or to a religion or a nation.

Essentially, the global elite’s modus operandi when it comes to creating the perfect environment for wars can be summed up in two words: manufacturing consent.

 

“In war, truth is the first casualty.” –Aeschylus, Greek dramatist (525 BC – 456BC)

 

Ancient Rome

Roman emperor Nero is believed by many historians to be responsible for one of the earliest false flag operations. Those historians claim that Nero was the perpetrator of the Great Fire of Rome in 64 AD in which a third of the ancient city was torched.

The emperor’s ulterior motive, they say, was to build Domus Aurea, an enormous building that would include the Colossus of Nero – none other than a massive bronze statue of himself! Before the fire, the Senate had blocked the emperor’s proposal to destroy a third of the city to make way for this complex.

According to Roman historian Tacitus (56 AD – 117 AD), Nero told the Roman population that the Christians, whom Rome was at war with, were responsible for the fire.

While not everyone agrees with Tacitus, no-one disputes that Nero got his way in the end. The impressive Domus Aurea was built in the heart of ancient Rome precisely where the great fire had cleared away the aristocratic dwellings. Naturally, the complex included that statue of himself – the mighty Colossus of Nero.

Nazis framing communists

Another fire was responsible for one of many Nazi false flag operations.

In 1933, the Reichstag, the seat of the German parliament, was set ablaze. Adolf Hitler immediately stated he had evidence that communist terrorists started the fire. Most Germans readily accepted that – influenced no doubt by the month-long, Nazi-sponsored street violence that preceded the fire. The violence achieved its aim of creating a Red Scare, or a fear of communists, within the general populace.

The following day, Hitler and his party persuaded the elderly and senile President von Hindenburg to sign the Reichstag Decree. The decree, which was supposedly a defence against future terrorist acts, suspended almost every major civil liberty afforded German citizens at that time.

Reichstagsbrand.jpg

The Reichstag fire a Nazi plot.

Despite the Nazi party’s attempt to blame the fire on a group of communists, the communists were later acquitted by the German government itself.

Most historians agree that members of the Nazi Party were responsible for the fire in the Reichstag. The Hitlerites did this in stealth of course, using one Marinus van der Lubbe, a mentally disturbed arsonist hungry for fame, as their patsy. They’d received a tip-off that van der Lubbe planned to burn the building down. Not only did the Nazis let him do it, they encouraged him and even helped by leaving gasoline in parts of the building.

 

“All propaganda must be presented in a popular form and must fix its intellectual level so as not to be above the heads of the least intellectual of those to whom it is directed.” –Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf

 

The US Military’s proposal to kill Americans

In 1962, the US Government’s Department of Defense and Joint Chiefs of Staff proposed carrying out acts of terrorism on American soil to justify military intervention in Cuba.

Hard to swallow or believe, we know, but it’s on the record. Numerous military and intelligence documents recording these disturbing false flag proposals, known as Operation Northwoods, have since been declassified.

Operation Northwoods remained a secret for 35 years. The sinister proposal first came to the public’s attention in November 1997 when The John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Review Board declassified various top secret military records, which included the Northwoods documents. The following year, the National Security Archive published further revealing information on Northwoods.

A (since declassified) ‘Top Secret’ memo dated March 13, 1962, addressed to the Secretary of Defense and signed by then-Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff makes for interesting reading. Its subject line reads: Justification for US Military Intervention in Cuba.

Item No. 1 on that memo reads: “The Joint Chiefs of Staff have considered the attached Memorandum for the Chief of Operations, Cuba Project, which responds to a request of that office for brief but precise description of pretexts which would provide justification for US military intervention in Cuba.”

Operation Northwoods’ plans included the sinking of US war ships, shooting down hijacked passenger planes, killing innocent American citizens, letting off bombs and orchestrating other violent terrorist acts in major cities including Washington DC and Miami.

Every event would be blamed on Fidel Castro and the Cuban regime. The Joint Chiefs of Staff’s logic was that these events would help gain enough support from the American public and the world at large for a US military invasion of Cuba.

Fortunately, President Kennedy immediately rejected the Northwoods proposal and fired one of its main proponents, Lyman Lemnitzer, who was then Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

President Kennedy with his Joint Chiefs of Staff incl. Lemnizter (third from left).

The following year, Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas, while Lemnitzer was appointed Supreme Allied Commander of NATO.

Go figure!

In his 2001 book Body of Secrets, US political journalist and bestselling author James Bamford wrote that Operation Northwoods “called for innocent people to be shot on American streets; for boats carrying refugees fleeing Cuba to be sunk on the high seas; for a wave of violent terrorism to be launched in Washington, D.C., Miami, and elsewhere. People would be framed for bombings they did not commit; planes would be hijacked. Using phony evidence, all of it would be blamed on Castro, thus giving Lemnitzer and his cabal the excuse, as well as the public and international backing, they needed to launch their war”.

Sadly, Bamford is one of the few well-known political commentators to write about Operation Northwoods. When the documents were declassification in 1997, they were almost universally ignored by the media.

Apparently on-the-record discussions within the US Government about murdering its own citizens as propaganda to create a war were not deemed newsworthy.

 

Nine knew from experience it was simply about those powerful few, the secret elite, who manipulated the world’s nations. On his many international assignments over the years, he had discovered the so-called evil countries were all too often controlled by the same people who ran the countries fighting to liberate them.The Ninth Orphan

 

The false flag that began the Vietnam War

On August 4, 1964, President Lyndon Johnson alerted his fellow Americans on national television that North Vietnam had attacked the American destroyer USS Maddox in the Gulf of Tonkin.

Not long after, Congress passed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, which gave Johnson the green light to begin military operations against North Vietnam. American troops were soon stationed in Vietnam and neighboring countries, and the war that would dominate an era began.

However, President Johnson and his Secretary of Defense, Robert McNamara, successfully hoodwinked the American people because North Vietnam never attacked the USS Maddox as the Pentagon had claimed, and the so-called unequivocal evidence of a second attack by the North Vietnamese is now commonly acknowledged as being a false report.

A National Security Agency (NSA) report on the Gulf of Tonkin Incident, declassified in 2005, concluded that USS Maddox had engaged the North Vietnamese Navy on August 2, 1964, but (and this is a big but) “The Maddox fired three rounds to warn off the communist boats. This initial action was never reported by the Johnson administration, which insisted that the Vietnamese boats fired first.”

Regarding the all-important second attack on August 4 – which effectively caused the Vietnam War – the NSA report concluded there were no North Vietnamese Naval vessels present during the entire incident: “It is not simply that there is a different story as to what happened; it is that no attack happened that night.”

Tonkingunboats.jpg

“No attack happened.” – NSA report on Gulf of Tonkin incident.

If an organization as biased as the NSA says no attack ever happened then it seems very safe to say the Gulf of Tonkin Incident was nothing but a phantom attack on the US Military. It was carefully crafted propaganda devised to manufacture consent for all-out war.

In this instance that propaganda ended up costing approximately 60,000 American lives and three million Vietnamese lives.

 

Factual reporting is all too often propaganda designed to provoke certain reactions from the masses.The Orphan Factory

 

According to our research, WW2 was one of the last legitimate wars. Legitimate in that there was probably no other alternative but war. Nearly all other wars since – especially the Gulf Wars, Vietnam, The Falklands War and the various Afghan wars – have simply been money-spinners spawned by the fear of fabricated enemies or at least unproven enemies.

This all leads to other questions.

Were communists ever a valid threat? When the US pulled out of Vietnam, why didn’t the much hyped Domino Theory ever occur? Why weren’t most other Asian countries overrun by communism as this theory stated was inevitable?

Is it realistic to have a war on ‘terror’ instead of a conventional war against a recognizable nation or group of nations? Can bearded nomads living in caves in Afghanistan or Pakistan really be a genuine threat to superpowers? And can isolated and impoverished nations like North Korea prevent world peace if the rest of the world wants peace?

Would North Korean president Kim Jong-un actually order his military to fire nuclear weapons and incite war? If so, what would be in it for North Korea when they’d obviously be committing suicide by inviting the rest of the world to immediately invade them? Can a leader of any nation really be that stupid?

And why is it leaders of such fiercely independent nations as Cuba, Venezuela, Iran and Libya are usually portrayed as madmen while the likes of George W. Bush are said to be completely sane?

Maybe world leaders and the invisible puppet masters who pull their strings are not that different to Rome’s Emperor Nero all those centuries ago.

And it appears the world has not learnt from the well-documented false flag deceptions of the past, for as at the time of writing, news reports are surfacing that imply a new arms conflict between Russia, the Ukraine and the United States is possible.

Although the disagreement over the disputed region of Crimea appears to be a little more complicated than the North Korea issue, the usual signs of propaganda also seem to be being disseminated by warmongers. Echoing almost verbatim the alarmist news reports on North Korea a year earlier, talk of a return to the days of the Cold War, or even the possibility of World War Three, are being mentioned in the media in regard to this standoff in the Ukraine.

War memorial in Tiraspol,

And here we go again…This time it’s the Ukraine.

We certainly don’t pretend to have all the answers, but we agree with whoever it was who said we should all study the past to understand the present.

Of course, we could be totally wrong in our assumptions concerning wars. In which case, North Korea really may be about to nuke us all! If that’s true, the best advice we could give you is to put this book down immediately and spend what’s left of your precious life in party mode.
