President Kennedy had issued a "National Security Action Memorandum" #263, which ordered the USA to disengage from Vietnam, a presidential directive that LBJ reversed on November 26th, 1963 when he issued "National Security Action Memorandum" #273, which had been written the day before Kennedy was murdered.
On 2 August 1964, the USS Maddox, on an intelligence mission along North Vietnam's coast, allegedly fired upon and damaged several torpedo boats that had been stalking it in the Gulf of Tonkin.(North Vietnamese Special Forces, called 'dac cong,' used Israeli supplied Uzi sub-machine guns to kill American troops during the Vietnam War.)
A second attack was reported two days later on the USS Turner Joy and Maddox in the same area. The circumstances of the attack were murky. Lyndon Johnson commented to Undersecretary of State George Ball that "those sailors out there may have been shooting at flying fish."
End result: Over 3 million Vietnamese killed, most of them civilians. And all that 'Agent Orange' that we sprayed to defoliate the jungle is still killing and maiming today, causing numerous birth defects of Vietnamese children.
Vietnam: American Holocaust
87 Minute documentary on the Vietnam War. Shows how the U.S. government killed more than 3 million Vietnamese in their War of Independence. Starts with the history of the conflict from WWII, the defeat of the French, how the American people were lied into the conflict in the Gulf of Tonkin. Then shows how the killing was done. Includes testimony from soldiers and Vietnamese.
President Johnson used an alleged attack by North Vietnamese gun boats on U.S. destroyers in the Gulf of Tonkin to greatly escalate the American War in Vietnam, but the attack never happened.
If you have not seen this documentary, "Vietnam: American Holocaust," I highly recommend watching the movie. I saw it on FSTV and the stories told by the soldiers of wanton killings of civilians, burning of entire villages and the rape, then murder of pretty Vietnamese girls was sickening, but a must watch to help us understand that the USA doesn't fight wars for freedom, but to use as an excuse to build up the military and make Wall Street bank's financing the war huge profits.
"Operation Just Cause," the 1989 Invasion of Panama: Panama's leader, General Manuel Noriega, was already on the CIA's payroll, helping that gang of cutthroats move cocaine out of South America into the USA. But when Noriega dragged his feet, not wanting to help the CIA and Pentagon mercs butcher Central American peasants, he had to go.
What were the reasons given for this invasion? They are all too familiar:
The U.S. President, then George Bush, Sr., said he was removing an evil dictator, General Manuel Noriega, who was brutalizing his own people. Noreiega was portrayed on TV as a madman waving a machete. After a concocted incident provoked by U.S. troops, Bush claimed that an invasion was needed to "protect American lives."President Bush's allegations that forces under Noriega's command had shot and killed an unarmed American serviceman, wounded another, arrested and brutally beat a third American serviceman and then brutally interrogated his wife, threatening her with sexual abuse, all of which we later found out to be lies, as shown in the excellent documentary, "The Panama Deception," 1993 Academy Award, Best Documentary Feature.
Meanwhile, this same Noriega was actually on the CIA payroll (right up to invasion).
The Panama Deception documents the untold story of the December 1989 U.S. invasion of Panama; the events which led to it; the excessive force used; the enormity of the death and destruction; and the devastating aftermath. The Panama Deception uncovers the real reasons for this internationally condemned attack, presenting a view of the invasion which widely differs from that portrayed by the U.S. media and exposes how the U.S. government and the mainstream media suppressed information about this foreign policy disaster, made all the more timely by the current war on terrorism.
Another allegation made by the film is that the United States tested some form of laser or energy weapon during the invasion. The film also includes footage of mass graves uncovered after the US troops had withdrawn, and depicts some of the 20,000 refugees who fled the invasion.
Then President George H. Bush used lies that his son, 'Junior,' would use to illegally invade Iraq in 2003.And one can't mention false-flag without bringing in the masters of that 'dark art,' Israel:
Bush also claimed that Panama under Noriega represented a threat to American security, that Noriega had declared war on the United States and that Noriega had threatened to block the Panama Canal. These were charges with scant evidence, at best. They emanated from the mouths of U.S. officials — a number of whom would go on to have a role in the U.S. invasion of Iraq, including Dick Cheney, Colin Powell, Elliot Abrams and Richard Perle.
George Bush Sr., Israel, cocaine and PanamaEnd result: The wealthy elite maintain control of Panama and still use it to ship cocaine out of S. America and launder the drug money. Thousands and thousands of Panamanian civilians killed and massive devastation.
Meanwhile, a US Senate subcommittee report charged that Panamanian authorities had not moved to halt the sale of Israeli-made weapons to Colombian drug lords. Major news magazines have documented Israeli involvement in gun running to the Medellin cocaine cartel.
According to US investigative journalist Jane Hunter, editor of the independent monthly Israeli Foreign Affairs, what became known as the Harari Network was set up in 1982 by the Reagan administration and the Israeli government to run a secret aid program for the Nicaraguan contras. It was headed by long-time Mossad official Mike Harari.
In April 1988, the subcommittee on narcotics, terrorism and intelligence operations of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee heard testimony from José Blandon, a former Panamanian intelligence officer who said that the Harari Network shipped guns to the contras and smuggled cocaine from Colombia to the US via Panama.
1983 Invasion of Grenada, "Operation Urgent Fury."
A tiny Caribbean island nation of around 100,000 people that US war mongers deemed to be a threat to the USA.
The invasion was criticized by the United Kingdom, Canada and the United Nations General Assembly, which condemned it as "a flagrant violation of international law".Invaded on October 25, 1983, TWO days after the MOSSAD bombing of the Marines Barracks in Lebanon which killed 241 American troops.
For example, the U.S. State Department falsely claimed that a mass grave had been discovered that held 100 bodies of islanders who had been killed by Communist forces.
President Reagen's 'handlers,' realizing that the murder of American servicemen would cause a public uproar, decided to turn that rage into joy by invading an island nation that was NO threat to the USA, but which makes many American war mongers happy and horny, thinking about how big their missiles are.

The 9/11 Commission Rejects own Report as Based on Government Lies
In John Farmer’s book: “The Ground Truth: The Story Behind America’s Defense on 9/11″, the author builds the inescapably convincing case that the official version... is almost entirely untrue...
The 9/11 Commission now tells us that the official version of 9/11 was based on false testimony and documents and is almost entirely untrue. The details of this massive cover-up are carefully outlined in a book by John Farmer, who was the Senior Counsel for the 9/11 Commission.
Farmer, Dean of Rutger Universities' School of Law and former Attorney General of New Jersey, was responsible for drafting the original flawed 9/11 report.
