I was a bit cofused over whether this was a BBC or CNN production. Then I came across the following information:
Jeremy Isaacs produced the 1998 program in a style similar to his previous series, The World at War (1973). Businessman Ted Turner created the
series as a joint production between the Turner Broadcasting System and the BBC, originally broadcast on CNN in the U.S. and the BBC Two in the
So there we have it; it's both.
I hope this thread gets proper attention (no snugness intended). I think we could all avoid lots of misunderstandings about our past by watching and
learning these 24 episodes. I don't say there is any reason to dismiss all political conspiracy theories out there, but if you understand the past (a
past that isn't at all very distant) you understand where we are coming from...(err, that kind of said itself) and maybe also where we are headed.
At least, we get to clarify some "links" and "ties" that are so very, very often misused and misunderstood in many-a-conspiracy. Some of you will
be very surprised how little influence the Royal families of Europe have had in history, post World War One (common basis for NWO conspiracies).
What I think we should all be very aware of, and that stands out clearly in this production, is that up until the beginning of the Reagan/Bush
(an era we suffered under, globally, at least
until President Obama, the US policies makes sense to me.
Especially in the first
10-20 years after the war. Emphasis was on the well-being of mankind.
We didn't want no war and neither did the people in the White House or any other parliment in the West. Nor did the Soviets want any war.
main interest was to rebuild a wartorn world and ensure that there would never be any further world wars. Up to date, that has worked out pretty well
But, as we enter the late 70's and the early 80's, things turn dark.
This is what is revealed in "ep. 18 Backyard".
This is the defining point in time when the US turns rotten.
Suddenly, there is no longer a will to preserve freedom.
This is when there is only a will to preserve riches.
Dusk sets on "the Free World" and it has not been a dawn since.
Is Reagan and Bush senior really the conspiracy? Or is this the point in time when big business grew too big for US government to handle and overruled
all democratic principals?
What is clear, however is that the CIA was/is not a tool of the US government; rather a tool of itself. A government within the government. Working
for some sort of profit that is unknown to the common man. Probably no better that what we have in Russia today, the FSB (former KGB). More or less an
organized, state sanctioned mafia with monopoly on legalized killings and terrorism (yeah, you heard me TERRORISM
CIA is the conspiracy.
I am happy to see discussion emerge in here about each and/or all episodes.
Happy to help y'all!
