13 Lies: An Abbreviated History of U.S. Presidents Leading Us to War

Those of you who long ago figured out that George Bush lied about, and twisted, 9-11, the role of Al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and Osama, and WMDs to justify the invasions of Afghanistan, and Iraq, and to create the War on Terror, will not be surprised to learn that our prior Presidents, and their complicit henchmen, have lied us into every war since our Revolution. Their true reasons have not been legal, constitutional, or politically acceptable, so they invent one or more false reasons that they can sell to the people. The recent WikiLeaks disclosures confirm how our foreign policy is riddled with lies. Surprise!

Sadly, most people, especially the troops and their families, believe the lies and proudly support these “wars for defense of our Liberties.”  It doesn’t occur to them that our leaders would be so evil as to spend the lives of our troops to gain their hidden goals for Empire-USA (oil, power, land, etc.).

The secret plan of the Bush-Obama gang is to:
A.  Take over all oil in the greater mid east (including the east of Caspian ‘xxstans’, and North Africa), which holds the world’s last reserves of easy-cheap oil, so we don’t have to share it with China, India, and others

B.  Defend Israel at any cost (this helps congressmen and presidents get Israel’s AIPAC support for re-election). Control of oil was the hidden reason for the Balkans, Afghan, and Iraq wars.

Iran is their next target
Thus, the war drums are beating in DC to justify bombing Iran, so this is a good time to consider whether our leaders are lying again.

The sole purpose of our military is to defend the homeland from damage or invasion, or a serious threat thereof. It is not for managing world affairs as a global police force, or to build an empire to gain economic or political control of foreign lands and control our “interests” there. Unfortunately, these two missions have been the primary secret agenda for all of our wars since 1898.

Below are the facts on how we got into a few major wars. Each one could be (and has been) a book, and many other smaller wars also could be shown, so please forgive the brevity. The format is: war name; the lying President and the year it started; the stated reasons/lies for the war; and the real reasons.

1.  War of 1812 (Madison, 1812) — Lies: In 1812, Congress declared war on England based primarily on their kidnapping (‘impressment’) of our sailors at sea. Truth: To drive England out of N. America, so the war started with our failed invasion of Canada at Detroit.  DC “expansionists” took advantage and started incursions to acquire Spanish Florida, and Mexican Texana territories.

2.  Mexican-American (Polk, 1845) — Lies: Fight to defend our Texas border with Mexico. Truth: The disputes started when residents stole The Republic of Texas from Mexico. We invaded and took the northern half of Mexico, now our entire SW region of five states.

3. Civil (Lincoln, 1865) — Lies: Fight to end slavery and preserve the union. Truth: The South got tired of economic abuse by the North and had a perfect right to secede. It was not a civil war and it was unconstitutional, illegal, and immoral for the North to start a war to stop them. The Northern states who had the votes to control Congress, wanted to retain the South as a source of cotton and a customer for their manufactured goods (hence the high tariffs on imports in southern ports).  Slavery was ended later by the Emancipation Proclamation, but only in Southern states, because the Union wanted the slaves as soldiers.  Lincoln was a tyrant beholden to the railroad and canal interests; he jailed journalists and draft resisters who opposed him.  Yet, to this day he is revered as a great President who saved the Union.

4. Spanish-American (McKinley, 1898) — Lies: Spain blew up the US battleship Maine in Cuba’s Havana harbor. Truth: Hearst publicized, and Teddy Roosevelt mobilized, to use the accidental explosion to take over Cuba by starting a war in April, 1898. We then invaded the Philippines in May and annexed Hawaii in July. A busy time for the beginning of Empire-USA!

5. WWI (Wilson, 1917) — Lies: Join Europe to “Make the World Safe for Democracy.”  Truth: Wilson was convinced to join by US and European industrialists who wanted to sell munitions and guns to the allies, and get paid when they won.

6. WWII (FDR, 1941) — Lies: Defend the US from unprovoked attacks by Japan. Truth: FDR wanted to help his pal Winston Churchill, so poked Japan until he got his “incident.”

7. Korean (Truman, 1950) — Lies: Defend America. Truth: Truman and the Generals wanted a reason to have troops in the Far East area of our Empire.

8. Vietnam (Kennedy, Johnson, 1964) — Lies: Johnson said Vietnam attacked our ships in the Gulf of Tonkin in August, 1964. Truth: The US didn’t want to lose the southeast Asia region, and its oil and sea lanes, to China. This “attack” was convenient.  Kennedy initiated the first major increase in US troops (over 500).

9. Gulf War (G.H.W. Bush, 1991) — Lies: To defend Kuwait from Iraq. Truth: Saddam was a threat to Israel, and we wanted his oil and land for bases.

10. Balkans (Clinton, 1999) — Lies: Prevent Serb killing of Bosnians. Truth: Get the Chinese out of Eastern Europe (remember the “accidental” bombing of their embassy in Belgrade?) so they could not get control of the oil in the Caspian region and Eastward.  Control land for bases such as our huge Camp Bondsteel in Kosovo, and for the proposed Trans-Balkan Oil pipeline from the Caspian Sea area to the Albanian port of Valona on the Adriatic Sea.

11. Afghan (G.W. Bush, 2001) — Lies: The Taliban were hiding Osama. Truth: To build a gas/oil pipeline from Turkmenistan and other northern ‘xxstan’ countries to a warm water (all year) port in the Arabian Sea near Karachi (same reason the Russians were there), plus land for bases.

12. Iraq (G.W. Bush, 2003) — Lies: Stop use of WMDs — whoops, bring Democracy, or whatever. Truth: Oil, defense of Israel, land for permanent bases (we were kicked out of Saudi Arabia) to manage the greater Middle East, restore oil sales in USD (Saddam had changed to Euros).

13. Possible Iran War (Obama, 201?) — Lies: They almost have an atom bomb; they are a threat to Israel; major killer of our troops in Iraq. Truth: Control their oil, defend Israel, and restore oil sales in USD only (they changed to add Euros and others).  We created the regional conflict and shouldn’t be surprised that all neighbors (including our “friends” in Saudi Arabia) are helping Iraq. We exaggerate the threat to Israel, especially as Iran has allowed inspections and Israel has not.

If you approve of the current Bush-Obama wars, but are resting safely at home, you should join the Army’s Chicken Hawk Brigade. There is no restriction on age or sex, and you will get an exciting front-line assignment promptly. Then, you won’t feel badly about sending others to fight your wars for oil, religion, and Empire-USA.

Better yet, write, call, and vote against the NeoCon gang in Congress to stop their plans for war against Iran and others.

    Pearl Harbor was an attack not acted upon, in order to influence the public opinion, and join Europe in the fight against Germanny, Japan and its allies. The British warned of the fleet and sent messages to Washington… just like the presidential memo with Terrorists using planes to attack…

    Also see operation Northwoods. and that was the 60ties!

    Not a surprise. the US has been the nation nourished in the nurseries of lies which their President have been developing aided by their bunch of their military general coupled with their industrial magnets who have looted the people of US and also the world resources. In the name of democracy, welfare and human rights. US President has always been lying to US people to befool them and grab illigitimate money for their expensionist and sabotaging and destruction activities. It has now been on the record proved that US interfered militarily in more than 100 countries in all corners of the world where more than 150 lakhs innocent people were killed wihout any fault of theirs.They are not only 13 Presidents of the US who lied upon on various occaassions and topics but hundreds of their ministers, secretaries and military generals also continued to promote President’s lies with their colorful lies– justifications– to become more loyals than the king. I regard the present US economic meltdown the outcome of the continued lies of the ‘elected’ Presidents of the United States of America.

    I really have to wonder about your hatred for Israel. You declare that Iran is not a threat to them,even though Mahmoud has said countless times that he wants them erased from Earth. If he said that about your family,would you take him seriously???

    The first troops deployed in WW1 were from the Dorset Regiment and they were sent to Basra, situated in the blood soaked smoldering rubble of a liberated Iraq. The Brits wanted to cut off the Germans’ access to oil by stopping the advance of the Orient Express at Constantinople/Istanbul

      Then the UK dropped the first toxic gas bombs ever on the Iraqui people, killing about 13,000 civilians – not civilians, they were MOSLEMS!

    This is the most non complete list ever seen but a good start or introduction into the deep of US foreign policies. A 5% world population consuming a 25% energy resources of the world can and will reveal much more than this. Sharpen up on weapon industries and put it together, followed by monster industries born from science but please do not forget the financiers in the first place. Debt pressure and speculative profit motivation got its own origin and only by this we all can understand of how and why all this and much worst could develope. Our sole world wide enemy is the group behind the FED, its political servants and maybe millions of misleaded followers. Educate everybody on “how money is born” and than promote the new cash system developed by Horst G Ludwig under concept name of “The Peoples Fund”. Organise top thinkers able and willing to do more than words and unite everybody legally under SLAVES UNITED. This does exist like the humanitarian heroe still do exist. Write them in english, german or spanish slaves.united@gmail.com

    PLEASE understand that iluminati background to all of this is of human mind theory and can and will be beaten with the same. There is no need of killing and desperation act, not even disclosing in the public.
