Perhaps it's the habit for codifying disinformation that has Mr. McGovern right on the mark in defining the War of Aggression's character and its violation of the Geneva Conventions, only to begin his piece with the premise of innocence:
"Reality should trump rhetoric regarding that godforsaken war – in my view the most unprincipled and consequential foreign policy blunder in U.S. history. "
To term the False Flag trigger and subsequent disasters as a "policy blunder" is itself totally misleading. As is this apparent paean to George Bush, Sr.
"Maybe it is partly because I know the elder Bush personally, but it does strike me that, since we are all human, some degree of empathy might be in order. I simply cannot imagine what it must be like to be a former President with a son, also a former President, undeniably responsible for such trespass on law – for such widespread killing, injury and abject misery."
Mr. McGovern leaves out his family's direct influence in funding the Nazis, and it also leaves out Bush, Sr's role in the C.I.A.
Since the C.I.A surely was a beneficiary of all that top Nazi brass and its "progress" into the field of human mind control (added to that of the skillful use of propaganda), Bush, Sr. is HARDLY the innocent that Mr. McGovern indicates.
I notice the same homage to Bush, Sr. in Oliver Stone's film, "W." While Stone did a pretty expert job uncloaking the mysteries surrounding the death of J.F.K and pointing to some people with dubious connections to that horrific assassination, he sure went light on Bush, Sr.
Was Jr. set up to be the family's fall guy?
The use of allegories from the patriarchal Bible are just so much more fluff added as STORY to disguise the culpable actions of a family neck-deep in horrors.
I don't think there's anything more immoral or spiritually-retrograde than using religion or the Bible to justify what a long line of warriors (and their make-war "Intelligence-producing" agencies) do and continue to do in the way of spreading massive campaigns of violence.
THAT is not what Jesus would do! No matter how you dress it up, Mr. McGovern. You boy-men confuse religion's teams with sports and make war on the basis of false man-made terms of segregation.
