- Henry Kissinger in an address to the super secret Bilderberg
Organization meeting at Evian, France, May 21, 1992 said the following
as transcribed from a tape recording made by one of the Swiss delegates:
- "Today American's would be outraged if U.N. troops
entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful. This
is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond,
whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is
then that all peoples of the world will plead with world leaders to deliver
them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When
presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished
for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government."
- "You have to understand. Future wars will be fought
by capitalists and anti-capitalists as society polarises. When that happens,
control of information will be as important as control of territory used
to be in conventional conflicts. If you can stop your enemy from destroying
your information, then you have a good chance of winning the war."
- US Marine Corps - 'High Class Muscle Man For Wall Street'
- Major General Smedly D. Butler headed the Marine Corps
for many years when he wrote this article in Common Sense in the November,1935
- "There isn't a trick in the racketeering bag that
the military gang is blind to. It has its "finger men" (to point
out enemies), its "muscle men" (to destroy enemies), its "brain
guys" (to plan war preparations), and a "Big Boss" (supernationalistic
- "It may seem odd for me, a military man to adopt
such a comparison. Truthfulness compels me to do so. I spent 33 years
and four months in active military service as a memeber of our country's
most agile military force -- the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned
ranks from second lieutenant to Major General. And during that period
I spent more of my time being a high-class muscle man for Big Business,
for Wall Street and for the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster
- "I suspected I was just a part of a racket at the
time. Now I am sure of it. Like all members of the military profession
I never had an original thought until I left the service. My mental faculties
remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of the higher-ups.
This is typical with everyone in the military service.
- Thus I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe
for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and CUba a decent
place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped
in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit
of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua
for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-12. I brought
light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916.
In China in 1927 I helped see to it that the Standard Oil went its way
- "During those years, I had, as the boys in the back
room would say, a swell racket. I was rewarded with honors, medals and
promotion. Looking back on it, I feel I might have given Al Capone a few
hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three city districts.
I operated on three continents." ___
- Charles Lindberg from 'Of Flight and Life' (1948)
- Our survival, the future of our civilization, possibly
the existence of mankind, depend on American leadership -- upon the wisdom
of our policies and action. On the one hand, we know that peace has never
existed for long where some great power has not enforced it by military
strength. On the other, we have seen that military strength is like a
flame which consumes the very stuf from which it springs. Great military
peoples have conquered their known world time and time again through the
centuries, only to die out in the inevitable ashes of their fire. Well
over two thousand years ago, the Chinese philospher, Laotzu, concluded
- "Weapons often turn upon the wielder, An army's
harvest is a waste of thorns."
- We may have to resort to arms in the future, as we have
in the past. We may have to use them to prevent atomic war from being
launched against us. But let us have the wisdom to realize that the use
of force is a sign of weakness on a higher plane, and that a policy based
primarily on recourse to arms will sooner or later fail.
