A Cultural Habit of False Flags and Provocations

I found this in the memoirs of US Grant. The entire book is worth reading. One of America’s finest leaders explained our provocations against Mexico to lure them into a war. America provoked war with Mexico just as we did with Japan. Though you are hard-pressed to find 1 per 1,000 educated Americans who knows either. America boldly provoked both Mexico and Japan to attack us.

I am very concerned we will make a preemptive nuclear strike on Russia.

  1. Remember the Maine!

  2. Interesting words and I believe them. I happen to have much respect for Robert E. Lee. The South was brought to its knees and had no chance at survival. Now, every aspect of Southern Heritage is being erased. What is your opinion on this?
