My knowledge of the US economy is virtually non-existant, but I'd still like to pose something:
Starting a war abroad is an age old tactic used by those in power to distract the population from problems at home. From King Henry V through to Margaret Thatcher, the powers at the top of the food chain have used conflict to try and restore their popularity in the face of domestic crisis.
While there may be no truth in any of the theories banded about, is it so far fetched to even suggest that the Bush government might sacrifice a few of what they see as worthless lives in order to keep themselves in power? Ideally you would like to say with 100% certainty that it couldn't happen, that no one is that set on power that they would trade it for human life. However, if history has taught us one thing, it is to always question the actions of those who want our trust.
It goes beyond a Government trying to divert people form their day to day problems or to keep control - they're a just puppets, tools (both meanings involved), and they would do anything to reach their objective. I mean, how do we come to this:
I find totally amazing that we accept being micro chipped / databased like animals without saying anything - and we don't say anything cause they make sure we're scared enough so we accept whatever our "leaders" want us to do - that's madness but they still get away with it.
again, watch that documentary Zeitgeist
it's quite scary how some points actually make sense...
For how much you think conspiracy theories are stupid, there are facts that you cannot close your eyes on, or way too much coincidences - this is how i started to wonder - watching some "documentaries", reading the paper, watching the news, not seeing anything wrong until arriving to a point where i thought: wait a minute, there's way too much coincidences to be just coincidences...
Google some of these terms:
Council on Foreign Relations
Gulf of Tonkin Incident
So many historical events or organizations revolving around the same people or systems - way too much coincidences to just be coincidences - look at the facts for what they are: Facts and not some biased interpretation... Read between the lines - that's all i am saying
