Fabricating Incidents to Start Wars

Fabricating incidents to start wars empires feel they can win, such as Hitler’s strategy of tension through faking an attack by Poland on a German radio station, America’s strategy of tension through creating the Gulf of Tonkin incident in order for President Johnson to get congressional backing to widen the war in Vietnam and justify a heavier assault on North Vietnam, and the totally discredited ever-changing rationalizations for attacking Iraq, is standard practice.

This is the careful writing of, falsification of, history by the powerful United States who took the job over from the old colonial world. Documents on the destabilization of Cuba, declassified in 1998, titled “Pretexts to Justify U.S. Military Intervention in Cuba” demonstrate how it is done. Plans for those in-depth deceptions were to,

fake an attack on the U.S. naval base in Guantanamo, Cuba, with friendly Cubans masquerading as attackers…. Arrange for an unmanned vessel to be blown up near a major Cuban city…. Stage a ‘Communist Cuban terror campaign’ in the Miami area…. Plant arms in a Caribbean country and send jets painted to look like Cuban Migs, creating the appearance of a ‘Cuban based, Castro supported’ subversion…. Blow up an unmanned U.S. plane that would surreptitiously replace a charter flight of civilians (and much more).[1]

L. Fletcher Prouty was one of three officers who wrote the how-to books on covert operations for the CIA. In his JFK: The CIA, Vietnam, And the Plot to Assassinate John F. Kennedy, we learn that strategies of tensions, terrorist bombings, attacks by our own covert forces dressed as the enemy, counterfeit papers, and the drumbeat of the CIA’s Mighty Wurlitzer, were managing perception throughout the world to control elections and to gain acceptance for the military suppressions of the many breaks for freedom.

American intelligence service manuals on terrorism teach that, at the sites of their many acts of state terrorism, always leave evidence the opposition was responsible.[2]

National Security Council Directive 68: The Master Plan for the Cold War

A study of NSC-68 will conclude that, besides being a master plan for the Cold War, this directive was a perception management instrument to stampede government officials into accepting a high military posture. That analysis and the crisis facing the developed Western world are confirmed. Secretary of State Dean Acheson, one of the primary architects of NSC-68, sums it up for us:

Western Europe … shattered by its civil war, was disintegrating politically, economically, socially, and psychologically. Every effort to bestir itself was paralyzed by two devastating winters and the overshadowing fear of the Soviet Union no longer contained by the stoppers on the east, west, and south—Japan, Germany, and British India…. It was in this period [the first 3 years after the beginning of the Cold War] that we awakened fully to the facts of the surrounding world and to the scope and kind of action required by the interests of the United States; the second period, that of President Truman’s second administration, became the time for full action upon those conclusions and for meeting the whole gamut of reactions—favorable, hostile, and merely recalcitrant foreign and domestic—that they produced. In the first period, the main lines of policy were set and begun; in the second, they were put into full effect amid the smoke and confusion of battle…. The purpose of NSC-68 [the master plan for the Cold War] was to so bludgeon the mass mind of “top government” that not only could the president make a decision but that the decision could be carried out.[3]

Although President Truman may have been fully aware, the fact that the finalized NSC-68 was presented to him on April 16, 1950, but it not being signed until September 30, 1950, as NSC-68/2, three months after the start of the Korean War, demonstrates the likelihood the American president was one of the “top government officials” the designers of the Cold War were stampeding into a war posture through the strategy of tension of the communists as the aggressor of the Korean war and this foretelling more communist aggressions worldwide.
