Quick comeback before final exam : The point is that there must be a constant security threat at all times in the US, Johnny B. When then is not a bonafide threat, the US government will manufacture one. The historical record is very clear on this, and if you would like, I can go through specific wars to illustrate this point. Please don’t accept JFK as a credible source, lol …. I think you were pulling my chain with that reference, hopefully so.
Ex: If Russia needs OPEC oil, they will trade us Vodka, for example, or wheat, or potatoes, or whatever, for dollars. For them it is like a barter system. That’s why Russia keeps something like $500 billion in dollar reserves at all times. What would have happened if the Iraqis under Saddam, in a challenge to the dollar’s hegemony, put his oil on the euro standard. Other countries may have followed suit, and ultimately our economy would have gone down, baby, and i mean back to the depression. That’s why there has been a plan on the table for years to get rid of Saddam, all that was needed was a pretext.
Go read what Perle and Wolfowitz came up with in 1999(or 1998 i forget), called the Plan for the New American Century. This interesting document gives the US a pretext for usurping the central Caspian oil reserves (the -stan countries)and invading Iraq (something the Zionists have wanted for a long time) if there were a catastrophe on American soil on the scale of Pearl Harbor. See also : “The New Pearl Harbor” So there’s a quick response. I am anxious to hear back from you. Cheers

With regards to citing JFK as a source, I was poking a little fun at you. Truth of the matter is, the thesis of “JFK” was that LBJ pulled the strings to pump money into the MIC, and that Shaw, a gay right-winger, was a pawn. Of course LBJ was just a pawn too, in the grand conspiracy
