In the Cycles of War conference, I examined the facts history has left behind for the excuse to start war. Here is the advertisement placed in the NY newspapers by the Germans warning people not to sail on the Lusitania. In the face of truth, the government and the press willingly transformed that incident into German aggression that was inhuman, The US was violating its neutral position sending arms to Britain using passengers as cover.
In order to justify war, the number one ploy is to always transform yourself into a victim and the target into the aggressor. This is the common theme to begin every war. It is WHY we must ALWAYS look closely at the real evidence. If you analyze history dissecting everything very carefully, you will realize that this is not something new, but has been used for thousands of years. The nature of society as a whole does not support ruthless aggression on a wholesale basis. To gather that support they must be transformed into a victim. The USA know Japan would attack Pearl Harbor and allowed it to happen because the people did not support war to defend anyone else. Vietnam was the same thing. The Gulf War against Iraq was transformed into the aggressor that had nothing to do with 911. Even there with 911 they at the least knew what was coming and allowed it.
Even if we look at the classic war between Octavian and Marc Antony we find the seeds of how to wage war even when it is civil for personal power. True, Octavian was the named heir of Julius Caesar. True, it was Marc Antony who was the better general and who had fought alongside Caesar. It is also true that Cleopatra gave birth to Caesar’s only son who is known to history named Ceasarion. Antony was partially manipulated by Cleopatra who had designs of conquering Rome through the bedroom. Antony supported her in battle against Octavian and had they been successful, no doubt the person on the throne would have been Caesarion – not Antony. The aggressor must therefore always start as a defender of a war.
Octavian never waged war against Marc Antony or Caesarion in a public forum. The evil aggressor was Egypt and Cleopatra. When Octavian defeated Antony and Cleopatra murdering Caesarion, his coins showed the war was with Egypt, not a Roman.
Now, with this in mind, let use look at the shooting down of a passenger aircraft by pro-Russian forces in Ukraine as a ploy to start war. If this is the case, then it is entirely possible that (1) this was a deliberate act by the West to provoke war with Russia, (2) was a mistake and then transformed into justification to wage war, (2) pro-Russian forces made a mistake and shot down the wrong plane, or (4) pro-Russian forces intended to shoot down a passenger plane.
Before there was any evidence or investigation, Obama came out and accused the pro-Russian forces. But the wreckage of Malaysian Airlines MH 17 is curious. It shows bullet holes not a missile.
