We all seem to have our own ideas of how this went wrong, or that went wrong.

I personally think that one of the worst mistakes ever made was the decision to abandon our previous fiscal policies and to allow the Federal Reserve to take over America's monetary system. This sold out our nation to the forces of the international financiers who always kept Europe, and through their Empires, the world, in constant turmoil. It paved the way for the Stock Market crash and the whole concept of Government to the rescue that had been present since.

So what do each of you think has been the worst mistakes or conspiracies of the past century?

Another example:

The U.S.S. Indianapolis secretly transported the atomic bomb to Tinian so it could be dropped on Hiroshima. This was very secret, as virtually everyone would expect.

However, on the way home, it was spotted by a Japanese submarine and torpedoed. In a few minutes, it sunk beneath the Pacific. Because the Captain thought his mission was so secret, they did not radio for help. The net result was that they weren't found for a while, and most of the crew, who had survived the torpedo, did not survive the sharks and sea conditions.

Think about it for a moment, though. Once they had delivered the bomb, what was the secret that an American cruiser was in the Pacific? NONE!!!

The was NO WAY the Japanese could know what the Indianapolis had done, and radioing for help would be the expected thing the Japanese sub commander would have expected. It was actually more suspicious to NOT radio for help. Therefore, a thousand men or so died because of the inability of the Captain to think outside the "Intelligence Box" mindset.

This type of abnormal thinking persisted throughout the Cold War, and is now occurring because of the War on Terror!
