Sure some may be but I don't think its fair to say "all" wars are bankers wars.
Maybe... but I'm trying hard to think of one. The examples I mentioned, Vietnam for instance, was one involving a country that was not underthe
control of Bankers.
Just did a quick google on that one and found a statement in the following paragraph that states:
"Communists scorned democracy, violated human rights, pursued military aggression, and created closed state economies that barely traded with
capitalist countries. "
The multiple starting dates for the war complicate efforts to describe the causes of U.S. entry. The United States became involved in the war for a
number of reasons, and these evolved and shifted over time. Primarily, every American president regarded the enemy in Vietnam--the Vietminh; its 1960s
successor, the National Liberation Front (NLF); and the government of North Vietnam, led by *Ho Chi Minh--as agents of global communism. U.S.
policymakers, and most Americans, regarded communism as the antithesis of all they held dear. Communists scorned democracy, violated human rights,
pursued military aggression, and created closed state economies that barely traded with capitalist countries. Americans compared communism to a
contagious disease. If it took hold in one nation, U.S. policymakers expected contiguous nations to fall to communism, too, as if nations were
dominoes lined up on end. In 1949, when the Communist Party came to power in China, Washington feared that Vietnam would become the next Asian domino.
That was one reason for Truman's 1950 decision to give aid to the French who were fighting the Vietminh
So it appears he skipped over this in the video when he could have included it. That said, I'll bet other wars followed this model but I'd have to
dig more. Yes, arguing with myself but picking through this for me is an excercise and one of the reasons I posted. Hopefully other will help
evaluate this video from an objective point of view as you have.
Another point is Russia, or communism as a whole. Right or wrong, communism is a direct threat to Banking no? In its pure form, any banks would
belong to the people. So I could argue that any aggression towards a communist country is in the best interest of the bankers. Same can be said
