It is because the American people are so opposed
to war that there have been many lies to initiate
1. The G W Bush regime (Gore not Bush was elected)
alleged there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, knowing there were none.
2. Lyndon Johnson lied about a fabricated Tonkin Gulf incident as an excuse to expand the war to more than 500,000 troops.
3. Franklin Roosevelt had broken the Japanese code
and knew the details of the planned bombing of Pearl
Harbor. He sacrificed several thousand sailors in order to mobilize the American people. Roosevelt had taken a series of actions to
incite a Japanese response. The book The Greatest
Generation tabulates 10 or more of these actions such as blocking Japanese access to oil.
Do Freedom of Information Act Files Prove FDR Had Foreknowledge of Pearl Harbor?

An Interview with Robert B. Stinnett by Douglas Cirignano
"On November 25, 1941 Japan’s Admiral Yamamoto sent a radio message to the group of Japanese warships that would attack Pearl Harbor on December 7. Newly released naval records prove that from November 17 to 25 the United States Navy intercepted eighty-three messages that Yamamoto sent to his carriers. Part of the November 25 message read: “...the task force, keeping its movements strictly secret and maintaining close guard against submarines and aircraft, shall advance into Hawaiian waters, and upon the very opening of hostilities shall attack the main force of the United States fleet in Hawaii and deal it a mortal blow...” https://www.thenation.com/article/us-special-operations-forces-have-quie/
4. The bombing of the World Trade Center was arranged by part of the CIA in league with the Mossad. The CIA had spent tens of billions of dollars driving the Soviet Union out of Afghanistan and wanted an excuse to invade the country. 911truth.org
5. An explosion of The Maine battleship in the Havana harbor was blamed on Spain. From the Library of Congress website loc.gov
"Many ships, including the Maine, had coal bunkers located next to magazines that
stored ammunition, gun shells, and gunpowder. Only a bulkhead separated the bunkers
from the magazines. If the coal, by spontaneous combustion, overheated, the magazines
were at risk of exploding. An investigative board on January 27, 1898, warned the
Secretary of the Navy about spontaneous coal fires that co
uld detonate nearby magazines"
The executive branch of the government along with the Pentagon, CIA and war profiteers, arms mongers have taken more and more power illegally. The CIA has extralegally been involved in dronebombing for several years.
The last declared war by our government
happened in 1942 when other countries involved in the Germany Japan Italy axis were added.
More money has been spent on the 17 illegal wars of our government
since 1980 than the total of our national debt.
Corporate media (NBC, CBS, ABC, PBS, NPR, FOX, IHeart Radio, Sinclair Broadcasting etc)
muzzle the voices of the majority of Americans who want peace. 90% of Talk radio in the US is
controlled by the GOP and by hawks. While CSpan allows antiwar opinions called in, it has virtually never scheduled advocates of nonviolence or antiwar activists.
Because of these
wars Americans are dying without health care, in neglected infrastructure deaths, in fires which burn with little federal firefighting help, neglected and
abused in nursing homes, etc.
The fact that we do not want to live under repressive regimes does
not mean that we should bomb and murder people of other countries.
