How many realize that Trump’s Summer Solstice tweet about stopping a drone strike as retaliation for the latest false flag attack was “not proportionate” due to the probable loss of 150 lives has changed the war game forever? Read the second tweet first:
I invite you to think back to Obama’s Monday morning drone strikes. 100 targets on his “kill list” each time. (And who objected?) At least this is what I remember. Can’t find the source now. However, The Drone Papers gives a rundown on how the drone kill list had a chain of command approving each target, with Obama signing off on each one.
That report focuses on drone strikes in Yemen and Somalia. Meanwhile, there were the 193 drone strikes on Pakistan authorized by Obama from when he took office in 2009 through early 2011.
Meanwhile, check this out, an extremely detailed and documented history of false flags used to start wars.
Caitlin Johnson is right. The very fact that false flags (and attendant MSM complicity) are needed to start wars shows that the American people do NOT want them.
However, check out these words of caution from Paul Craig Roberts:
What Caitlin overlooks is that there is something desperately wrong with Americans that they can be consistently fooled again, and again, and again, and yet again, and never catch on.Their gullibility is especially difficult to comprehend in face of the 21st century’s concentrated dose of deceptions—9/11, Afghanistan, Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction, Assad’s use of chemical weapons, Iranian nukes, Russian invasions, MH-17, the long list of lies about Gaddafi, the bombings of Pakistan, Maduro starving his own people–one deception rapidly following the other and never does a doubt arise in the good Americans’ minds.
I agree with both of them. On the one hand Americans don’t want war, and on the other hand, they have been, until now, easily deceived by the MSM, which has served as a handmaiden to warmongering, delivering FAKE NEWS, something that DJT has trumpeted, over and over again, in order to counter its effect.
To my mind, except for weapons manufacturers, banksters, politicians, alphabet agencies, and others who profit from war, both the American people and their President, Donald Trump, DO NOT WANT WAR. Period. This is new. After hundreds of years on this planet, this nation is finally beginning to wake up to “false flags” (a phrase now in common parlance), and its now time to transform its perceptions of how to use the extreme, inventive Mars/Uranus in Gemini energy on the Descendant of its natal chart. The U.S. has always projected this energy out, onto its “enemies,” seeing “threats” everywhere that it must counter with more and more diabolical weapons. Instead, we need to take back the projection, integrate the intense innovative talent that it represents, so that our inventive energy can transform into new technologies that are creative and regenerative, for both people and planet as a whole.
No doubt the coming Pluto return (2020-25), heralded during this year and next, by the rare 30 year transit of Saturn conjuncting the 248 year transit of Pluto, only three degrees from the natal Pluto in the U.S. natal chart, is responsible for this slowly emerging metamorphosis.
This nation, which has been at war over 93% of its lifetime, needs to learn to regain its own self-worth (second house) by employing its power (Pluto) in a less destructive, less imposing, less dominating manner. There is no choice. It’s either that or blow up the whole world. As Trump says about Bolton:
His actual words: “John Bolton is absolutely a hawk. If it was up to him he’d take on the whole world at one time.” You might watch that entire Meet the Press episode. It clearly shows that Trump wants to get out of the Middle East altogether. “We’ve spent 7 trillion dollars in the Middle East.”
Why does Trump keep Bolton on? Because, he says, in order to make decisions he stays informed of “both sides.”
Oh and BTW: Check out the X-22 Report from last night. Trump seems to be positioning the U.S. to get out of the petrodollar which, one could argue, is what has kept the wars going in the Middle East all these years.
