America has a history of attacking itself...
Most people have no idea that war is the most profitable business in the world, second to none. The first major whistle blower exposing this was Major General Smedley Darlington Butler, a legendary soldier who at the time of his revelations was the highest decorated marine in history.
As you can read in his short piece entitled War is a Racket, now available online for free, he plainly explained that;
War is a racket. It always has been.
It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.
A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. 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 very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.
This warning came 80 years ago and nothing has changed, but the dangers have only intensified. This is because those who start war take absolutely no risk but are able to reap massive gains. What better gamble is there? It is not their lives that will be sacrificed while they sit in their mansions or in their offices. It's the poor and middle classes.
More and more people are waking up this and it seems that as a result the elites are becoming more open about how the war of business works, which is through the creation of false flag events that can justify invasion under the disguise of defense.
In the below video, Patrick Clawson of the influential neo-con Washington Institute for Near East Studies openly suggests a false flag attack to go to war with Iran, which he acknowledges is the "traditional" method of starting a war in America;
