run the fuck away
During the 60's, the US military drafted plans to terrorize US cities to provoke war with Cuba. This is according to the book Friendly Fire, which I'm curious to know more about. I mean, sources, etc.

Even so, it paints a chilling picture, and changes the context that we can view the WTC incident from. I mean, there's all sorts of rumors and intimations that the US government willfully failed on September 11th. I tend to think that individuals inside the administration chose to "accidentially" drop the ball, and that there was not a coordinated effort to allow it to happen. That's the optimist in me.

But then again, when someone wants a war, there's always a Zimmerman Telegram, or a Gulf of Tonkin waiting to happen, isn't there? Heck, there's even some sources that say Perl Harbor was willingly allowed by the US government to motivate the citizenry into the war.
  • Gulf of Tonkin is interesting. What pased for a North Vietnamese navy was scared shitless of US destroyers. My dads ship ran across two NVN boats, they had enough torpedos to sink my dads ship if they fired them all in a coordinated attack. But they immediately turned and ran the fuck away from the isolated destroyer. Of course, running doestn' help you against an aggressive enemy captain.... Both of those boats went down with all hands.
  • LSD, courtesy of the Sandoz Corporation. What a great way to silence war protesters!

    Ironically, there is this (lousy) viedogame called "Superpower" where terrorizing your own people and pegging it on your foes is included as a remarkably effective tactic for building war sentiment. The game boasts "Data coompiled from CIA sources."
