US Lied About the Rationale for War

The Vietnam war, that is-- and covered it up for, oh, about forty years.

Deja vu, all over again.

I think, then, we are due for another Orwell quoted:

"In accordance to the principles of Doublethink it does not matter if the war is not real or when it is, that victory is not possible. The war is not meant to be won. It is meant to be continuous. The essential act of modern warfare is the destruction of the produce of human labor. A hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. In principle the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects. And its object is not victory over Eurasia or Eastasia but to keep the very structure of society intact."

Oh boy. Sorry to burst your bubble, and his, but this is not news. A lot of people have known this for awhile. And it's not a cover up, it's just not well reported. I did a paper last year and talked extensively about the Gulf Tonkin resolution and the events leading to it.
