As at least one member here is pointing out –
Americans are controlled by a military dictatorship –
Brig. Gen. Smedley Darlington Butler wrote about it in 1935 as our military being the
underlying support for Elites/Capitalism here and around the world –
JFK attempted to break that hold in taking the US out of Vietnam after the Bay of Pigs –
Vietnam was a total lie as the Pentagon Papers later made clear - and the United Nations had
also directed that the issue of Vietnam’s future was to be left to Vietnam and its leaders.
It was to have its Independence.
And, as another member makes clear …
After Dealey Plaza in November 1963, LBJ put the Joint Chiefs back in business in Vietnam.
As JFK had recognized and confided to a close aide, “It’s a nice piece of real estate.”
