Ah, I got the feling someone would post something like that. But nope, that's completely 100% wrong. I'm not taking a jab at anyone. I came across
what I found to be an interesting story and I shared it. Simple as that.
If you think I'm Anti-American, then I suggest you take the time to actually read my past posts and get to know me a little bit better. I say that
because nothing could be further from the truth.
Pointing out every little thing that potentially makes America look like an evil monster in this world is getting lame.
Well, read my past posts, I obviously haven't done this.

Well I'm an American and I take no offense. Merely discussing plans and history is not a reason to get upset if you don't like the answer...
.... But I'm going to be a bit LESS Generous and say that since 9/11, I've been learning more and more about the past of this country -- and it
appears that only due to a FLUKE, after FDR took office, and until Reagan took over -- the USA was an awesome and laudable country for maybe 40 years.
After that, we sent death squads and supported murder on labor organizers in Central America. WE backed Pinochet for the benefit of the telephone
companies desire for cheap copper (and probably other reasons). We've undermined almost every fledgling Democracy on the planet, and we make and
break alliances based ONLY on strategy and money.
I just learned that we helped move some critic of Kaddaffi's to one of our hired torture camps. That was a few years before we suddenly didn't like
Kaddaffi anymore and sent financial aide to dissidents in his country. We also send money and weapons to terrorists in Iran (and yes, that's what
In the Iraq war, we switched sides. The faction that was helping us, then got hunted by us because the other side was winning. Did any Americans even
notice? Especially the ones who talked all day about honor and justice and what we were doing for Iraq -- they couldn't even be bothered to know the
difference between Suni and Shia or that these were Persians.
MOST of the good things this country has done -- was forced upon the leaders and the power barons by people of conscience. If the little people
didn't make a fuss -- we would have been just as back-stabbing as any Machiavelli family.
WE had about 40 good years after the American Revolution, and 40 good years after FDR -- the rest has been massacres of Indians, land grabs, and doing
everything that benefits a few.
>> Another "Plan" the Join Chiefs worked up was to take over a commercial airliner with a remote control device, and fly it into a tall building, to
make the public believe we were under attack. The plan was shot down by JFK -- but even today, people think such a thing is implausible.
There are contingency plans and then there are plans -- the difference is when the Joint Chiefs bring the plan to the President and those are the ones
we need to pay attention to.
