World Peace was almost achieved in the summer of 1963.
As detailed in his extensively footnoted, 2008 work of Historical Non Fiction “JFK and the Unspeakable - Why He Died and Why it Matters” (He Chose Peace, They Marked Him for Death), James W. Douglass reveals that an agreement between President Kennedy and USSR Premier Nikita Khrushchev had gotten as far as an imminent announcement of the end to the Cold War.
Urged, and aided, by Pope John XXIII, the two World Leaders had planned a joint venture to the Moon (Khrushchev already retooling Tank Factories into Aerospace), and Kennedy DOCUMENTING plans to completely end our involvement in Viet Nam.
Allen Dulles, deposed (by JFK) leader and founder of the CIA, martialed forces from the CIA, Military and FBI to murder President Kennedy.
In short order President Kennedy’s plans were reversed without so much as a Fact Finding Commission or Position Paper, and Endless War began.
Rather than a World of Peace and Cooperation, today the US has Military Bases all over the World, Seven Active Wars of Aggression, and FUNDING to Keep us in Nukes till the End of Time, (which Our Government just may facilitate)
And THAT is how the US “leads” the World today.
