Gangsters, Terrorists and War Criminals|
- the amerikan goons & thugs and their organised crime
They started two World wars to impose a gold-exchange standard. All other nations are a threat to the Great Satan because they might evade it's "leadership"; World domination. The "pivot to Asia" is the latest attempt to contain China. Since the 19th century, they've been occupying the Philippines and Japan as coaling stations to China. It is in this context that the protection racket with the Occupied Philippines, Occupied Japan and Occupied Korea, should be viewed.
The Pentagon Papers, officially titled United States – Vietnam Relations, 1945–1967: A Study Prepared by the Department of Defense, is a United States Department of Defense history of the United States' political-military involvement in Vietnam from 1945 to 1967. The papers were discovered and released by Daniel Ellsberg, and first brought to the attention of the public on the front page of The New York Times in 1971. A 1996 article in The New York Times said that the Pentagon Papers had demonstrated, among other things, that the Johnson Administration "systematically lied, not only to the public but also to Congress."
More specifically, the papers revealed that the U.S. had secretly enlarged the scale of the Vietnam War with the bombings of nearby Cambodia and Laos, coastal raids on North Vietnam, and Marine Corps attacks, none of which were reported in the mainstream media.
For his disclosure of the Pentagon Papers, Ellsberg was initially charged with conspiracy, espionage and theft of government property, but the charges were later dropped after prosecutors investigating the Watergate Scandal soon discovered that the Nixon administration had ordered the so-called White House Plumbers to engage in unlawful efforts to discredit Ellsberg.

As laid out by U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, the Chinese containment policy of the United States was a long-run strategic effort to surround Beijing with the USSR, its satellite states, as well as:
a) The Japan-Korea front,
b) The India-Pakistan front, and
c) The Southeast Asia front
. . .
McNamara accused China of harboring imperial aspirations, just like Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan. According to McNamara, the Chinese were conspiring to menacingly "organize all of Asia" against the United States:
China—like Germany in 1917, like Germany in the West and Japan in the East in the late 30's, and like the USSR in 1947—looms as a major power threatening to undercut our importance and effectiveness in the world and, more remotely but more menacingly, to organize all of Asia against us.
In order to encircle the Chinese, the United States aimed to establish "three fronts" as part of a "long-run effort to contain China":
There are three fronts to a long-run effort to contain China (realizing that the USSR “contains” China on the north and northwest):
(a) the Japan-Korea front;
(b) the India-Pakistan front; and
(c) the Southeast Asia front.
However, McNamara admitted that the containment of China will ultimately sacrifice a significant amount of America's time, money and lives.

1950 – The United States provided large-scale military equipment to the French colonial empire in its fight against the Viet Minh
1954 – The United States begins to engage in "acts of sabotage and terror warfare" against North Vietnam
1955 – The United States encouraged and directly assisted the South Vietnamese President Ngô Đình Diệm's rise to power
1963 – The United States encouraged and directly assisted the overthrow of the South Vietnamese President Ngô Đình Diệm
August 2, 1964 – Following the Gulf of Tonkin incident, the United States manipulated public opinion in its preparation for open warfare
Years before the Gulf of Tonkin incident occurred on 2 August 1964, the U.S. government was directly interfering in the internal affairs of Vietnam:
Under President Harry S. Truman, the U.S. government aided the French colonial empire in its war against the communist-led Viet Minh during the First Indochina War.
Under President Dwight D. Eisenhower, the U.S. government played a "direct role in the ultimate breakdown of the Geneva settlement" in 1954 by covertly undermining the communist country of North Vietnam.
Under President John F. Kennedy, the U.S. government transformed its policy towards Vietnam from a limited "gamble" to a broad "commitment".
Under President Lyndon B. Johnson, the U.S. government began waging covert military operations against North Vietnam.
. . .
The papers identified General Edward Lansdale, who served in the Office of Strategic Services and worked for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), as a "key figure" in the establishment of Ngo Dinh Diem as the President of South Vietnam, and the backing of Diem's regime thereafter. As written by Lansdale in a 1961 memorandum: "We (the U.S.) must support Ngo Dinh Diem until another strong executive can replace him legally."
. . .
According to the Pentagon Papers, the U.S. government played a key role in the 1963 South Vietnamese coup, in which President Ngo Dinh Diem was asassinated. While maintaining "clandestine contact" with Vietnamese generals planning a coup, the U.S. cut off its aid to President Diem and openly supported a successor government in what the authors called an "essentially leaderless Vietnam":
"For the military coup d'etat against Ngo Dinh Diem, the U.S. must accept its full share of responsibility.

Legal charges against Ellsberg
Ellsberg surrendered to authorities in Boston, and admitted that he had given the papers to the press.
I felt that as an American citizen, as a responsible citizen, I could no longer cooperate in concealing this information from the American public. I did this clearly at my own jeopardy and I am prepared to answer to all the consequences of this decision.
— Ellsberg on why he released the Pentagon Papers to the press.
He was later indicted on charges of stealing and holding secret documents by a grand jury in Los Angeles. Federal District Judge William Matthew Byrne, Jr. declared a mistrial and dismissed all charges against Ellsberg and Russo on May 11, 1973, after several irregularities appeared in the government's case, including its claim that it had lost records of illegal wiretapping against Ellsberg conducted by the White House Plumbers in the contemporaneous Watergate scandal.

The most dangerous gun-slingers in the Wild Wild West when they thieved America and turned it into a lawless state wasn't the quickest but the most ruthless. With the mind of cruel children, they have no restraint. You can tell straight away from the posts on this forum they're morons; single line, off-handed comments of a child. Look at the nationalistic, lying B.S. on ZeroHedge too. It's all dumbed down with lots of pictures, often with nothing profound. The dumbest is a block graph showing the enormity of student loans against something else; just two blocks. You can't get any dumberer or pointless than that. Then you read, for example, Henry C. K. Liu's articles. Whereas I don't agree with much that he writes, the difference is stark. They're not crowded with lots of graphs for starters. The supporting evidence is effusive and leads to the points he's trying to make. It takes a good length of time to read and understand them. The ZeroHedge B.S. is just mindless crap!
Meanwhile, the UK's goons & thugs have no shame in awarding themselves 11% pay rises despite the B.S. inflation stats. from the Office of Notorious Statistics claiming only 2.2% inflation. Whilst the state-run BBC reports, "Food poverty 'now a health emergency'", the goons & thugs have used taxsucker cash to fund the IPSA committee which has forced the goons & thugs to accept the pay rise against their wishes: All three party leaders disagreed with the rise when it was first proposed.
However Ipsa does not need to get the agreement of Parliament to bring in the changes.
The only light relief the taxsucker gets is that the pensions, which one pensions expert deemed, "the most generous pensions in the land", will now be curtailed slightly. The goons & thugs only have to serve two terms with their noses in the trough, during which they can get away with doing diddly-squat, before receiving the full and very generous pension. This is why the tag-team, sham-democracy of Labour and Tory have two or three terms in power before swapping places. Camoron has shown his typical leadership: Prime Minister David Cameron has stopped short of matching the pledge by the other party leaders to reject any extra money, and some Tory MPs support the increase. So he only rejects it "in principle". They've also defaulted on taxsuckers' pensions where the retirement age has been pushed further out into the future.
