"Actually, it's quite fun to fight them. You know, it's a hell of a hoot ... I like brawling. You go into Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for five years because they didn't wear a burka. You know, guys like that ain't got no manhood left anyway. So it's a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them." - Lt. Gen. James Mattis, Supreme Allied Commander Transformation (SACT)

"The Army pounds it into your head until it is instinct: Kill everybody, kill everybody. And you do. Then they just think you can just come home and turn it off."- Kenneth Eastridge, 10 years for accessory to murder


Talmudwood and the Pentagon have a long history of collusion.

It is very difficult for a person to kill another person.

People have to be manipulated into murder.

It is much easier to get a crowd to commit horrific acts than an individual.

During World War II, when left to their own devices, only 15-20% of individual riflemen would fire their weapon at an exposed enemy soldier .

"Despite all the killing we've done, the human mind is not designed to kill. We get sick when we kill. Killing is against our nature." - Rachel MacNair

This was blamed primarily upon training practice shooting at a bull's-eye.

Bull's-eyes don't appear on the battlefield but a human silhouette does.

In Vietnam 95% of the riflemen fired at an exposed human silhouette.

Marine Corps uses a modified version of the first individual video action game Doom (known as Marine Doom) as a training device, along with the traditional live ammunition range targets as a means of normalizing killing among soldiers.

This has been so successful that the Marine Corps Combat and Development Command in Quantico, Virginia evaluated more than thirty commercially available electronic games for their potential use as miltary training tools.

The American military has acknowledged for decades the success of using human likeness targets to enhance killing ability.

Is the effect of similar video games the same on kids?

With this in mind, the rise of school shootings should come as no surprise.

Highly centralized outlets offer remarkably homogenized news.

News services for daily newspapers throughout America are provided by the Associated Press, New York Times, Los Angeles Times and Washington Post wire services, and several foreign wire services like Reuters.

The ideological viewpoint of these 'news' conduits are always corporate.

Viewers of films, television programming, advertisements and readers of prose that implies violence often look upon their fellow men as violent.

Psychiatrist Robert Coles writes that children in some parts of America are more frightened than children in Lebanon or Northern Ireland.

A generation brought up on fear is willing to back the commision of immoral acts in order to protect themselves from imagined threats.

The nuclear weapons industry financed The Day After, a nuclear doomsday television movie, to get Ronald Reagan on board with "Star Wars".

The Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) was a proposed missile defense system intended to protect the US from attack by ballistic strategic nuclear weapons (intercontinental ballistic and submarine-launched ballistic missiles).

The SDI, combining ground-based units and orbital deployment platforms, was first publicly announced by Ronald Reagan on March 23, 1983.

Physicist Hans Bethe and Edward Teller, associates on the atomic and hydrogen bomb at Los Alamos, claim a laser defense shield is unfeasible.

June 28, 1985, David Lorge Parnas resigns from SDIO Panel on Computing in Support of Battle Management, arguing in eight papers software for the Strategic Defense Initiative could never be made trustworthy.

Implimentation of the Strategic Defense Initiative would have broken two international treaties:

The Outer Space Treaty of 1967, entered into force on 10 October 1967, requires "States Parties to the Treaty undertake not to place in orbit around the Earth any objects carrying nuclear weapons or any other kinds of weapons of mass destruction, install such weapons on celestial bodies, or station such weapons in outer space in any other manner."

The Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, entered into force in 1970, requires "Each of the Parties to the Treaty undertakes to pursue negotiations in good faith on effective measures relating to cessation of the nuclear arms race at an early date and to nuclear disarmament, and on a treaty on general and complete disarmament under strict and effective international control."

Programmed fear generated by the television movie The Day After was the impetus that allowed the marketing of the Strategic Defense Initiative.

The planners of 911 took note when mentioned that it would take another "Pearl Harbor" to get America onboard with empire security.

INCIDENT IN NEW BAGHDAD

Washington DC's role behind the scenes in Hollywood

1,100 titles received Pentagon backing – 900 of them since 2005,
from 'Flight 93' to 'Ice Road Truckers' and 'Army Wives'





The Pentagon has always understood the value of war propaganda.

"Military depictions have become an advertisement for us." - Pentagon

1986 Upon the release of Top Gun, the American navy set up recruiting booths in theaters where the film was being shown to capitalize on the pro-military fervor the film encapsulated.

Due to the enormous expense of military equipment, it makes financial sense for a film maker to get military coöperation.

However, this often entails the altering of scripts to fit the desires of the Pentagon - military and government personnel are depicted in more positive and heroic ways, 'American' ideologies are reinforced and not criticized.

1995 Goldeneye Original script had a American navy admiral betraying state secrets, but this was changed to make the traitor French.

1997 The Jackal received help after the marines were given a better role.

Major Nancy LaLuntas had objected that the helicopter pilots had no "integral part in the action – they are effectively taxi drivers."

"I am certain we can address points that you raised and effect the appropriate changes in the screenplay as requested." - Michael Caton-Jones

Coöperation had been given to the production of Top Gun after the character portrayed by Kelly McGillis had been changed from an enlisted individual to someone outside the military, as relationships between officers and enlisted personnel are against the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

The film makers of Hearts in Atlantis include a shot of an army recruiting booth in a carnival scene in exchange for permission to film on military base.

Despite having made changes to characters in Independence Day, the DoD refused help because, "the military appears impotent and/or inept; all advances in stopping alien invaders are the result of actions by civilians."

Movies that receive assistance show the Pentagon in a glorious mythic light.

They include: Air Force One, A Few Good Men, Armageddon, The Hunt for Red October, Pearl Harbor, Patriot Games, Windtalkers, Hamburger Hill, The American President, Behind Enemy Lines, Apollo 13, Tomorrow Never Dies, and A Time to Kill.

Movies that were denied assistance from the Pentagon portray the reality of war and include Apocalypse Now, Catch-22, Dr. Strangelove, Full Metal Jacket, The Last Detail, Lone Star, Platoon, and The Thin Red Line.

1999 Army signs a five-year, $45 million deal with the University of Southern California, chosen because of its close proximity to Talmudwood, to have the school's movie, special-effects and other technology experts help with troop training, including battle scenarios, virtual reality combat, and large-scale simulations creating settings similar to Operation Desert Storm.

February 2000 Dutch newspaper Trouw and France's Intelligence Newsletter notes the Army's Fourth Psychological Operations (PSYOPS) Group at Ft. Bragg, NC, is working within CNN's Atlanta headquarters during the end of the 1999 Kosovo war

"What we're witnessing here today is perhaps not only the announcement of a new sort of technological center, but the creation of a military-industrial-media-entertainment complex." - James Der Derian, Brown University

2002 'Reality' television series are produced to entice young men to emlist to go and fight in Iraq and Afghanistan.

CBS: American Fighter Pilots, follows three men as they train to fly F-15s, executive producers Tony Scott (director of Top Gun) and Ridley Scott (director of Black Hawk Down).

ABC: Profiles from the Front Line executive produced by Jerry Bruckheimer (Black Hawk Down) and Bertram van Munster (The Amazing Race) follows soldiers as they take part in the invasion of Afghanistan during 2002.

Usually the technology transfer goes in the other direction, with military applications leading the way in research and development, from the earliest incarnations of the computer in simulation projects like "Whirlwind" at MIT's Servomechanisms Laboratory during World War II, to "SAGE," the first centralized air defense system of the Cold War.

1997 MAK Technologies wins a DoD contract to make Marine Exed Unit 2000, an amphibious assault game intended for both military and commercial markets.

Every year, the US government hosts the Connections Conference, which is intended to unite members of the DoD and video game makers.

Attendees include personnel of the Defense Intelligence Agency and game companies like GT Interactive.

Conference agendas have included such topics as 'Wargaming Design Fundamentals' and 'DoD Wargaming 101'.

1998 J.W. "Wild Bill" Stealy, the chairman of Interactive Magic, a North Carolina software incorporation, is an Air Force Academy graduate and retired Air Force officer.

His incorporation produced Carrier Strike Fighter, a flight and combat simulator of the iF/A-18E, a fighter jet that had yet to be put into general operation.

2006 Col.

Has America Been Set Up As History’s Ultimate Bumbling Villain?



"Through many decades of wars, the US military has honed its training skills, learning to take a civilized human being and turn him into a killer.

A traditional way of doing this was to motivate the soldier to hate the enemy.

After World War II, this approach was shaken by the Army's official World War II historian, Samuel Marshall, who in 1947 upset the entire military establishment with a slim book called "Men Against Fire: The Problem of Battle Command in Future War."


Marshall claimed in World War II, at best one in four combat soldiers ever fired their weapon at the enemy, and combat units used only about 15% of the available firepower.

Discussing this with two veteran friends the one who had not been in combat found the report hard to believe, but the other, who had served in the infantry in Europe, said, "I had a machine gun. I never fired the thing."

"Why not?" the other asked. "If you fired it, they'd shoot back at you."

Many in the military challenged Marshall's findings yet military training became focused on how to improve the "ratio of fire."

Starting with the Vietnam War, the ratio of fire increased through training techniques that involve simulated combat - soldier act without thinking.

Soldiers often commit acts they regret and are uncertain about justification.

Recently, a confused American soldier in Iraq said he was not sure why he intentionally ran over a woman and killed her; his only explanation was he had been trained to respond that way in that situation." - Mark Kurlansky

Jessica Dawn Lynch never fired a shot.

Her rifle jammed with sand.

A broken back makes it a little hard to fight.

She was not shot or stabbed as pundits claimed.

The "daring" rescue was a carefully planned and executed script.

A stunning example of myth creation by Pentagon media managers.

A foundation upon which to base the need for future campaign of aggression.

Can a Marine take on the mantle of benevolent overseer?

Where there is force monopoly, atrocities are inevitable.

It happened in Vietnam War; it is happening in Iraq.

The problem is exacerbated in an alien culture with overextended tours.

Being constantly on guard against ambush but not being able to respond as a trained warrior with decisive force develops enormous pressures.

It does not take a psychiatrist to deduce that men and women break.

The facile imagery of goodness confronting evil in a fair contest with a good outcome exists only on movie screens, not in the realworld.

"Moral hazard" is a term commonly applied to financial contracts, under which one party is obliged to pay another money if a specified event occurs.

Moral hazard refers to situations in which the existence of a contract alters the behavior of one party increasing the probability of the event occurrence or the size of monetary payoff based on that event, or both.

If the cost of war is shifted to citizens:

empowered elites declare war;

decide how it is conducted;

decide who gets to die;

a newly empowered elite is more likely to embrace war;

and spend the entire wealth of their nation on it.

Very few offspring of the policy-making elite in Washington served in the armed forces and faced the bodily risk of war." - Uwe E. Reinhardt

Over 200,000 veterans of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars have been treated at Veterans Administration medical facilities.

Over 66,000 have been treated for post-traumatic stress disorder, acute depression and substance abuse.

At some Veterans Administration medical facilities it can take several months to be seen by a doctor for mental health issues.

The Veterans Benefits Administration has a backlog of 400,000 pending claims causing veterans to wait from 6 months to 2 years to receive benefits they are entitled to by law.

It is likely the cost of providing benefits for the returning Afghanistan and Iraq war veterans will cost between $300 billion to $600 billion.

"When five centuries of Portuguese rule in Angola ended the country's three nationalist factions were to form a coalition.

That plan soon collapsed into warfare, with the leftist Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA) fighting the right-wing allied Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA) and National Liberation Front of Angola (FNLA) forces.

The Soviet Union and Cuba supported the MPLA.

Washington backed the FNLA - also receiving Chinese aid - and UNITA.

The CIA began its Angolan operation with the directive to harass Soviet efforts and "prevent an easy victory by communist-backed forces."

CIA efforts to help the FNLA and UNITA soon ran into problems as both factions' forces were less than adequate so mercenaries were hired.

MPLA and Unita sign a ceasefire in Luanda to end the 27-year conflict.

According to Jane's Intelligence Review, wide-scale warfare is being replaced by what it calls LIC - low-intensity conflict.

Jane's Intelligence Review goes on to suggest that, as the nature of war has changed, "into this gap in society that the private security firm has stepped."

Jane's Intelligence Review points out that in 1997, during the chaotic fighting in Central Africa, a number of security firms were hired by the United Nations "to provide security support (for convoy and refugee protection) to peacekeeping or international relief operations."

There are several major players now in this privatization of warfare.

One of the best-known is Executive Outcomes of South Africa.

In the early 1990s, the firm was hired by Angola's MPLA government to protect the nation's oil-producing region from attacks by UNITA forces." - Bruce Kennedy

2005 Colonel Ted Westhunsing, a military ethicist, complained that a private security company, the civilian contractor USIS, in Iraq was committing murder.

The official narrative is that Colonel Ted Westhunsing could not handle the fact that USIS was making a profit off the war so he committed suicide.

Colonel Ted Westhunsing, the highest ranking officer to die in Iraq, died at the USIS camp with a single bullet to his head.

He never mentioned to family or friends that the corruption in Iraq he had found sullied the militaries honor so much that he was forced to kill himself.

Strange how fear took over Colonel Ted Westhunsing's life once he had made allegations of corruption.

war is a racket

war is a racket

War is still 'a racket'.

Possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious.

The only one in which profits are reckoned in dollars and losses in lives.

A racket is best described as something that is not what it seems.

Only a small "inside" group knows what it is about.

It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the many.

In the World War a mere handful garner the profits of the conflict.

Thousands of new millionaires and billionaires were made in the US.

Many admitted their huge blood gains in their income tax returns.

How many war millionaires falsified their tax returns?

How many of them dug a trench?

How many spent nights ducking shells, shrapnel and machine gun bullets?

How many of them parried a bayonet thrust of an enemy?

How many of them were wounded or killed in battle?

Three steps must be taken to smash the war racket:

Take the profit out of war;

Let the warrior body decide when war is necessary;

Limit military forces to home defense purposes.

The chief aim of any power of disarmament conferences has not been to achieve disarmament to prevent war but rather to get more armament.

Professional soldiers and sailors don't want to disarm.

No admiral wants to be without a ship.

No general wants to be without a command.

They cannot be for limitations of arms.

Lurking in the background are sinister agents of those who profit by war.

Ships will continue to be built, for the shipbuilders must profit.

Soldiers must wear uniforms, for the textile manufacturer profits.

Guns will be manufactured, powder and rifles too.

There is only one way to disarm with any semblance of practicability.

All nations must get together and scrap every ship, every gun, every rifle, every tank, every war plane. " - Major General Smedley Darlington Butler

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.




This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
