Lance Morcan | 2825 comments Excerpt from The Orphan Conspiracies: 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy:

Why else do you think we are permanently at war in various regions all over the world? And why is it the citizens of this country, one of the richest on earth, get poorer each year?” –The Orphan Factory

One of the recurring themes throughout The Orphan Trilogy is that the global elite will continue to profit any way they can. That often means orchestrating wars all over the planet.

And to create wars there don’t need to be any genuine enemies, only perceived enemies. If enough citizens believe their national security’s in jeopardy then politicians who propose wars will receive the support they need.

Of course, the public are reliant on the media to inform them of the facts regarding potential threats. And therein lies the problem.

In early 2013, the world was told North Korea was on the verge of starting a nuclear war. This sparked a certain amount of fear worldwide while on social media reaction to the rumored nuclear threat bordered on something closer to hysteria.

Notwithstanding Kim Jong-un’s Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is a brutal regime that has committed untold human rights violations against its own people, it appeared then as now an unlikely threat to world peace. Despite the 25 million-strong rogue state having declared itself a nuclear power, it seemed in all probability to be just that – self declared and nothing more. The vast majority of nuclear and regional experts agreed that North Korea’s arsenal amounted to only a handful of crude devices and they concluded the country was unlikely to have nuclear-armed missiles capable of reaching the United States.

Furthermore, the overwhelming consensus was that to become a true nuclear power, North Korean scientists would need a lot more bomb fuel than they had access to at that time.

Siegfried Hecker, an American nuclear scientist who has regularly been granted access to North Korea’s nuclear facilities, said the rogue nation lacked the materials to be a nuclear threat. Posting on the website of Stanford University’s Center for International Security and Cooperation in April 2013, Hecker said: “North Korea does not yet have much of a nuclear arsenal because it lacks fissile materials and has limited nuclear testing experience.”

Other similarly qualified commentators expressed near identical viewpoints. However, none of these expert opinions seem to have been taken into account by Western media outlets. Instead, most ran with the sensationalist angle that a nuclear war was a possibility.

Some journalists even went so far as to mention the potential for World War Three by bringing China into the equation and assuming it would side with North Korea in any international conflict.

Less than a month or so later the news story had completely fizzled.

From what we can ascertain, the whole episode was essentially the media hyping up a decades old stand-off between North Korea and the West.

This brief but high profile news story drove us to question whether any wars have arisen from sensationalism or propaganda.

Conventional wisdom suggests all international armed conflicts since WW2 were inevitable and the millions of soldiers and civilians who have been killed during this period were sacrificed for some greater good.

Certainly that’s the commonly-held belief about conflicts Western nations – America and Britain in particular – have been involved in.

But is this really true?

If wars create vast sums of money for the global elite, is it possible the Soviets, the Viet Cong and Muslim extremists were, or are, also fabricated enemies of the West along with North Korea? Or at least exaggerated threats?

We also questioned whether there are enough natural enemies left in the 21st Century to organically lead to wars involving superpowers. After researching the history of false flag operations, we would have to say no. Otherwise, why would there be a need for any of these false flag attacks? If the purported aggressors were invading other nations in broad daylight then surely there’d be no need to fabricate anything.

A false flag operation is basically the act of committing a terrorist event or an act of war and having others blamed for it. In recent times those others are usually oil-rich countries like Iraq, geographically or strategically important nations such as Cuba, or drug-abundant states like Afghanistan.

False flag terrorism is employed by governments and intelligence agencies all over the world. It is cleverly orchestrated propaganda designed to provoke specific reactions from the masses in the build-up to war. Sowing the seed, they call it, where – in agricultural terms – the ground is prepared for the harvest that will most assuredly follow. The harvest in this case being war, or more to the point, the spoils of war.

The powers-that-be understand that to create the appropriate atmosphere for war, it’s necessary to create within the general populace a hatred, fear or mistrust of others regardless of whether those others belong to a certain group of people or to a religion or a nation.

Essentially, the global elite’s modus operandi when it comes to creating the perfect environment for wars can be summed up in two words: manufacturing consent.

“In war, truth is the first casualty.” –Aeschylus, Greek dramatist (525 BC - 456BC)

Dennis Fernandes | 2 comments I'm new to this group and I appreciate the invite from the group founders, thank you.

This was the first article that I read and from the first article I'm impressed already by the logic and calm transparency regarding these topics.

North Korea - I remember being taught at school that very often the loudest in the playground is very often the weakest. That is, and always be the case with Kim Jong-un. There is a young girl defector (Yeon mi-Park) and her family from NK who is a major TV celebrity in South Korea now and she constantly tells of the shocking upbringing she endured and she is getting a lot of attention worldwide and Kim Jong has threaten her quite a lot with death threats but he is unable to stop her so far.

"In war, truth is the first casualty."
I have never heard this saying before and it is brilliant and so precise!

The history of WAR -
I recently read Thomas Malthus's An Essay on the Principle of Population and I have to say that realising that the biggest virus on this planet is mankind under a capitalist system, war does offer a solution to curb the population. I understand that this may sound arrogant and lacks empathy but if there was a war (there most probably will be soon), where all hardcore Muslim and Christian believers where going to fight, to prove who's god is better, truer, more devine, blah, blah, blah.... than I'm happy for them to wipe each other out. It would do the world population problem a bit of good.

I definitely believe the two journalists be-headings were false flags and will create enough mayhem to entice the religious inbred nut cases from both sides to go to war to fulfil their crusade and justify their stupid ideology.

I will get your book The Orphan Conspiracies.
Regards Dennis.

James Morcan | 11246 comments Hey Dennis,

Welcome to this group and I agree with many of your points, especially those you make about North Korea.

I personally think nothing good can even come out of any war - therefore even if a war is between two extremist groups of people you might like to get rid of, many far more normal groups interconnected with those extremists will always end up being killed in the process. Innocents will always die and even with groups you may consider as extremists and vultures, consider the innocent children who are born into those groups and who will be killed in the process. More citizens than soldiers are killed in most wars I think I once read.

So I just don't think war can ever be a viable solution and somehow humanity needs to work out all its differences in peaceful ways (not saying that'll be easy, but just think it's the only option).

Also, feel free to read some of the posts in the eugenics section of this group: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/group...
You'll find controversial ideas discussed in there about how the overpopulation theory may be a myth and if that's true (as I happen to believe it is) then maybe what is needed is a fairer distribution of wealth and resources rather than depopulating the planet.

And by the way, your school analogy about the loudest in the playground being the weakest seems very apt in relation to threats of war in recent times.

Dennis Fernandes | 2 comments Hello Lance,

thank you for the YouTube link and introducing me to the SGT report. Cheers!

Jim (jimliedeka) There's a smaller version of the false flag attack, the agent provocateur. Any time you see a protest that turns violent, it's usually an undercover LEO or informant that casts the first stone. It's almost always used to discredit a left-wing cause. Right wing causes discredit themselves by opening their mouths but nobody seems to notice that.

Great observation, Jim.
Now that you've mentioned it, I'd say agent provocateurs are to peace protests or social movements what false flag attacks are to conflicts between nations.

Elisabet Norris | 486 comments hello, I'm an atheist and not big into conspiracy theories (although I do find them intriguing). I haven't read much about wars, but am starting to spark an interest. I enjoyed reading your comments on here. I'm interest in checking out the discussion about Eugenics.
As long as humans exists, wars will exists...whether it be the school girl principle, greed or saving souls from evil...thanks for bringing intellectual arguments to the table :) ...I hope I can too, for now I'm too much of a novice and not sure I can back up my thoughts about war. I do feel like I'm learning more reading discussions such as this one :)

Hi Lisa. Being an atheist is not a detriment in acquiring "underground knowledge" ;)

Wow, it'd be sad if those disasters were cover-ups to stop important discoveries reaching the public.
Not saying I necessarily believe such theories, nor have I read much up on any of them, but nothing would surprise me when it comes to the elite!

Lance Morcan | 2825 comments 53 Admitted False Flag Attacks https://www.globalresearch.ca/53-admi...

Not Theory … Admitted Fact

There are many documented false flag attacks, where a government carries out a terror attack … and then falsely blames its enemy for political purposes.

In the following 42 instances, officials in the government which carried out the attack (or seriously proposed an attack) admits to it, either orally or in writing:

James Morcan | 11246 comments United States: The false flag empire
The trajectory of the American Empire has relied so heavily on false flag attacks one could describe it as a false flag empire.

America’s history of using false flags to start wars:

1. Mexican wars of 1819 and 1846-48
Florida, Texas, New Mexico and California were Spanish possessions that revolted for independence. The U.S. built a fortification 150km inside the Mexican border.

2. Annexation of Hawaii, 1893
Queen Liliukokalani proposed changing the Hawaiian Constitution, so U.S. Marines aided the leaders of a pro-American coup and a provisional government was proclaimed. In the last days of the Harrison presidency, a Treaty of Annexation was drawn up.

3. Spanish-American War, 1898
The surprise explosion of the battleship Maine at Havana, Cuba, in which 255 of the crew died. The Hearst press accused the Spanish, claiming that the explosion was caused by a remote-controlled mine. The U.S.A. declared war on Spain, and conquered Philippines, Guam and Cuba. Subsequent investigations revealed that the explosion originated inside the Maine and that it was either an accident, such as a coal explosion, or some type of time bomb inside the battleship. Divers investigating the shipwreck found that the armour plates of the ship were blown bending outwards, not inwards

4. Korean War, 1950-1953
South Korean incursions into North Korea (1949) led to war. It involved leaders of Taiwan, South Korea and the U.S. military-industrial complex (John Foster Dulles has been mentioned as an organizer of the hostilities).

5. Vietnam War Tonkin Incident, 1964
The National Security Agency admitted it lied about what really happened in the Gulf of Tonkin incident in 1964 by manipulating data to make it look like North Vietnamese boats fired on a U.S. ship so as to create a false justification for the Vietnam War.

6. Grenada invasion
The reason for the invasion given by the U.S. was that American medical students studying in the Grenada were in danger due the Cuban presence. The U.S. supported a new rightwing leader.

7. Panama invasion
An incident between American and Panamanian troops led to invasion. The leader Manuel Noriega was changed and the earlier Carter administration plan to hand the control of the Canal over to Panama was cancelled.

8. U.S. and Israeli sponsored war between Iraq and Iran, 1980-1988
The CIA-organised coup of 1953 replaced Iranian Prime Minister Mosaddegh with the dictatorial Shah, who was given the best Western military equipment. But after the revolt against the Shah, the U.S. supported Saddam Hussein to attack Iran with strategic support and weapons, including gas warfare agents. "Too bad they both cannot lose", is how Kissinger evaluated this situation.

9. Bombing of Lybia, 1984
A Mossad agent admitted that, in 1984, they had planted a radio transmitter in Gaddaffi’s compound in Tripoli, Libya, which broadcast fake terrorist trasmissions in order to frame Gaddaffi as a terrorist supporter. Ronald Reagan bombed Libya immediately thereafter.

10. Desert Storm (First Gulf War), 1991
Saddam Hussein asked for permission from the U.S. (via their ambassador, April Glaspie) to attack Kuwait, which had been asked by the U.S. to put pressure on Saddam to pay back money lent to fight against Iran. Kuwait was also illegally siphoning off oil from Iraqi fields. Saddam was told by Glaspie that the U.S. does not care about Arab quarrels. That was a trap, and after Saddam occupied Kuwait, George Bush Snr mobilised a coalition of some 40 nations to "liberate Kuwait" and to smash the recently-built Iraqi military power base. This also involved a media hoax, where the daughter of Kuwaiti U.S. ambassador played nurse on TV and testified to "witnessing" Iraqi soldiers throwing babies out of incubators in Kuwait.

11. Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan invasion), 10/7/01
Without any evidence, the former CIA-asset, Saudi Arabian Osama bin Laden, was claimed to be the mastermind behind the 9/11 strikes at the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon. The leaders of Afghanistan were willing to hand over Osama for trial to a neutral nation, but the U.S. refused this compromise.

12. Enduring Justice (Second Gulf War), 3/20/03
The claimed reason of the attack was that Iraq was a clear and present danger to the U.S., with WMD's available within less than an hour after the decision to assemble them had been made.
