By Jeff Gates STAFF WRITER/Editor

“It’s very good….Well, it’s not good, but it will generate immediate sympathy (for Israel)”.

Response of former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when asked on September 11, 2001 what the attacks meant for U.S.-Israeli relations. 

Game theory war-planners rely on mathematical models to anticipate and shape outcomes with staged provocations. For the agent provocateur, the reactions to a provocation—as well as the reactions to those reactions—thereby become predictable within an acceptable range of probabilities.

With ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan poised to expand to Iran and Pakistan, it is time to take a closer look at how conflicts are catalyzed-by way of deception.

When Israeli game theorist Robert J. Aumann received the 2005 Nobel Prize in economic science, he conceded from Jerusalem, "the entire school of thought that we have developed here in Israel" has turned "Israel into the leading authority in this field." A professor at the Center for the Study of Rationality at Hebrew University, Aumann’s Nobel lecture, titled "War and Peace," expounded on the rationality of war.

With a well-modeled provocation, a target’s anticipated reaction can even become a weapon in the aggressor’s arsenal. In response to the provocation of 9-11, how difficult was it to foresee that the U.S. would deploy its military to avenge that attack? With U.S. intelligence "fixed" by well-placed insiders around a predetermined goal, how difficult was it to anticipate that the reaction to 9-11 could be redirected to wage war in Iraq?

The emotional component of a provocation plays a key role in game theory warfare. With the nationally televised mass murder of 3,000 people, a state of shock, grief and outrage made it easier for Americans to believe that a known Evil Doer in Iraq was responsible-regardless of the facts.

For false beliefs to displace real facts requires mental preconditioning so that a targeted population can be persuaded to put their faith in fictions. That conditioning enhances the probability of a successful deception. Those who deceived the U.S. to invade Iraq in March 2003 began a decade beforehand to lay the "mental threads" and make the requisite mental associations to advance that agenda.

Notable among those threads was the 1993 publication in Foreign Affairs of a theme-setting article by Harvard University professor Samuel Huntington. By the time his analysis appeared in book-length form in 1996 as The Clash of Civilizations, more than 100 think tanks were prepared to promote it. The result created a widely touted narrative-a thematic storyline-supporting a "clash consensus" five years before 9-11 provided a plausible rationale for war.

Also published in 1996 under the guidance of Richard Perle was A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm (i.e., Israel). A member since 1987 of the U.S. Defense Policy Board, this self-professed Zionist became its chairman in 2001.

As an adviser to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Perle’s Pentagon advisory post provided a powerful insider position to shape the national security mindset around the removal of Saddam Hussein, a key theme of A Clean Break-released five years before 9-11. That same year Netanyahu addressed a joint session of Congress at the invitation of Newt Gingrich, the Christian Zionist Speaker of the House.

Murders, books, articles, think tanks and well-placed insiders are common components in a "probabilistic" model deployed by war-planning game theorists. Lawmakers are also a customary ingredient. They provide credibility and a facade of legitimacy-a critical element when inducing a nation to war with phony intelligence fixed around a preset agenda.

That role was eagerly filled by Senators John McCain, Joe Lieberman, a Jewish Zionist from Connecticut, and Jon Kyl, a Christian Zionist from Arizona, when they co-sponsored the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998. By promoting Israel’s 1996 agenda for Securing the Realm, their legislation laid yet another mental thread in the public mindset by calling for the ouster of Saddam Hussein-three years before 9-11.

The legislation also appropriated $97 million to promote their agenda. Distracted by mid-term Congressional elections and impeachment proceedings catalyzed by a well-timed presidential affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, Bill Clinton signed that Zionist agenda into law in October 1998-4-1/2 years before a U.S.-led invasion removed the Iraqi leader.

After 9-11, McCain and Lieberman became inseparable travel companions and irrepressible advocates for the invasion of Iraq. Striking a presidential pose aboard the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt in January 2002, McCain-a son and grandson of admirals-laid another mental thread when he waved an admiral’s cap and proclaimed, alongside Lieberman, "On to Baghdad."

By Way of Deception

The confidence with which this game theory strategy progressed in plain sight could be seen in the behavior of Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz, another Zionist insider. Four days after 9-11 while in a principals’ meeting at Camp David, he proposed that the U.S. invade Iraq. At that time, the intelligence did not point to Iraqi involvement and Osama bin Laden was thought to be hiding in a remote region of Afghanistan.

On that same day, San Diego FBI Special Agent Stephen Butler interrogated Iraqi Munther Ghazal at his home near San Diego to determine if he was funding Mel Rockefeller, an American with whom Ghazal traveled to Baghdad in early 1997. After meeting for several days with a top nuclear physicist with oversight of Iraq’s mothballed nuclear weapons program, Rockefeller returned to the U.S. with a practical proposal for removing Saddam Hussein without this war and without triggering an insurgency.

When regional specialists at the U.S. Department of State would not meet with him, he traveled to Ottawa in April 1997 where he met with Middle East specialists in the Canadian government to ensure a written record was made to confirm there was an alternative to war in Iraq-six years before the invasion. Instead of debriefing him, FBI agents sought to discredit him. Though FBI agents interviewed Ghazal many times, they have yet to meet with Mel Rockefeller.

Agent Butler cashed checks and paid rent for the two San Diego-based hijackers who piloted planes into the World Trade Center towers. The same Iman counseling Major Nidal Hassan (with FBI knowledge) before he was transferred to Fort Hood also counseled the San Diego-based hijackers-with FBI knowledge. As of December 1, 2009, no one from the FBI or national security had debriefed Mel Rockefeller-eight years after 9-11.

See: Ft. Hood: "Death By Political Correctness"? and For Hood Tragedy: The Real Story of the Terrorist "Mad Doctor Hasan"

When President George H.W. Bush declined to invade Baghdad and remove Saddam Hussein during the 1991 Gulf War, Pentagon Under Secretary for Policy Paul Wolfowitz imposed a No-Fly Zone in northern Iraq. By the invasion of March 2003, the Israeli Mossad had agents deployed for a decade in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul.

Intelligence reports of Iraqi ties to Al Qaeda were also traced to Mosul-reports that proved false. Mosul again emerged in November 2004 as a center of the insurgency that destabilized Iraq. That reaction precluded the speedy exit of coalition forces promised in Congressional testimony by senior war-planner Wolfowitz in the lead-up to the invasion.

An Inside Job?

The common pro-Israeli source of the phony intelligence that induced war in Iraq has yet to be acknowledged even though intelligence experts agree that deception on such a scale required a decade to plan, staff, pre-stage, orchestrate and-until now-cover up. The leaders of the 9-11 Commission conceded they were thwarted by Commission members adamantly opposed to hearing testimony on the hijackers’ motivation for 9-11: the U.S.-Israeli relationship.

The fictions reported as facts by mainstream media included Iraqi WMD, Iraqi ties to Al Qaeda, Iraqi meetings with Al Qaeda in Prague, Iraqi mobile biological weapons laboratories and Iraqi purchases of "yellowcake" uranium from Niger. Only the last claim was conceded as bogus prior to the invasion.

Only after the war began were the balance of the claims disclosed as false, flawed or outright fabricated. An attempt to punish former U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Joe Wilson for his exposure of the phony yellowcake account led to a federal conviction of vice-presidential chief of staff Lewis Libby, another well-placed Zionist insider.

The multi-decade consistency of agent-provocateur fact patterns suggests that this game theory-modeled warfare includes the Israeli provocation that catalyzed the Second Intifada. An intifada is an uprising or, literally, a "shaking off" of an oppressor. The Second Intifada dates from September 2000 when Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon led an armed march to Jerusalem’s Temple Mount-one year before 9-11.

After a year of calm during which Palestinians believed that Israel was sincere about peace, suicide bombings recommenced. As Sharon conceded, his march was meant to demonstrate Israeli control over a site considered holy by Muslims worldwide. In response to this second failed attempt at "shaking off" Israeli domination, Sharon and Netanyahu observed that only when Americans "feel our pain" would they understand the plight of the victimized Israelis.

These Likud Party leaders commented that the requisite empathy ("feel our pain") would require a weighted body count of 4,500 to 5,000 Americans lost to terrorism-the initial estimate of those who died in the twin towers of the World Trade Center-one year later.

In other words, only with pain could we identify with the Israelis. Does that mean that only with a mass murder could we be induced to respond with our military to advance their agenda? Was the U.S. response mathematically modeled at the Center for the Study of Rationality? Seven months after 9-11, Benjamin Netanyahu gave a speech in a U.S. Senate office building where he was introduced by Senators Jon Kyl and Joe Liebermn

American Valkyrie?

When successful, game theory warfare strengthens the agent provocateur while leaving the target discredited and depleted by the anticipated reaction. By game theory standards, 9-11 was a strategic success because the U.S.-by its response-was widely criticized for waging war on false pretenses. Only in hindsight did a deceived public realize that Iraq had nothing to do with that mass murder. However, that invasion had everything to do with "securing the realm."

Our response (predictably) triggered a deadly insurgency with devastating consequences for Iraqis, the U.S. and a "coalition of the willing" led to war by a successfully duped U.S. From a game theory perspective, that insurgency was a predictable reaction in a nation populated by three long-feuding sects: Sunnis, Shiites and Kurds. A violent invasion led by a nation closely allied with Jewish nationalists only further fueled the flames of violence and extremism-another foreseeable outcome.

Until the U.S.-led invasion, peace was maintained by an unsavory dictator and former U.S. ally who was rebranded an Evil Doer in the lead-up to war. As the cost in blood and treasure from our "liberation" of Iraq expanded, the U.S. became overextended militarily, financially and diplomatically.

The sectarian violence unleashed in Iraq is precisely what Messrs. Rockefeller and Ghazal were cautioned against in early 1997 should Saddam Hussein be removed suddenly and violently. The 1.3 million Iraqi deaths from war-related causes exceeds the worst of Saddam Hussein’s atrocities. As any competent game theory war-planner knew, the strategic winner in this war was certain to be Tehran as the U.S. neutralized its key foe-and is now urged by Israel to wage war on Iran.

As the U.S.-the primary target of this deception-emerged in the foreground, the agent provocateur faded into the background. But only after catalyzing dynamics that steadily drained the U.S. of credibility, resources and resolve. This "probabilistic" Israeli victory also ensured widespread cynicism, insecurity, distrust and disillusionment along with a steadily declining capacity to defend our real interests.

Meanwhile the American public came under a system of oversight and surveillance packaged and sold as "homeland security." This ominously titled operation includes rhetorical echoes of a WWII-era "fatherland" featuring a domestic security force completely alien to U.S. traditions. It is not yet clear whether this new agency was established to protect Americans. Or whether it is meant to shield from Americans those responsible for deceiving us to wage their wars.

In January 2003, Secret Service Agent Richard Sierze interrogated Mel Rockefeller at his home in Fresno, California after he sent an email to Florida Governor Jeb Bush. The email said, in effect, that if the governor’s brother (President George Bush) did not interview him on a public record prior to invading Iraq, he would do his best to ensure that lawful means were deployed to see the president executed for treason by a firing squad.

When questioned by Sierze, Rockefeller offered to have the agent speak with Dr. Glenn Olds, an adviser to four presidents, his senior adviser since 1994 and a former U.N. Ambassador who assisted him in entering Iraq through Jordon at a time when Americans were prohibited from traveling there. Sierze declined.

He also repeated his intent to see the president executed for treason and insisted that he be charged and taken before a federal magistrate to present evidence that Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction and that an alternative to war had been available since early 1997. Agent Sierze declined his demand to be arraigned in a U.S. Federal District Court-seven weeks before the invasion.

Agent Sierze should be interviewed to see if, in retrospect, he agrees that-had this advice been followed-the war in Iraq may well have been prevented. To date, no one with line responsibility has interviewed Mel Rockefeller on a public record. Why? The answer to that question would reveal those responsible for this ongoing deception.

The victims of these serial deceptions, including the families of those murdered in November at Fort Hood, may have a wrongful death cause of action against those with line responsibility who aided these operations by failing to engage the Rockefeller record in a timely fashion.

Foreseeable Futures

By manipulating the shared mindset, skilled game theory war-planners can wage wars on multiple fronts with minimal resources. One proven strategy: Pose as an ally of a well-armed nation predisposed to deploy its military in response to a mass murder.

In this case, the result destabilized Iraq while creating (predictable) crises that could be exploited to greater strategic advantage by expanding the conflict to Iran, another Israeli goal announced in A Clean Break-seven years before the invasion of Iraq.

Today’s mathematically model-able outcomes undermined U.S. national security by discrediting our leadership, degrading our financial condition and disabling our political will. In game theory terms, this devastation was perfectly predictable-within an acceptable range of probabilities.

Pakistan is primed to emerge as the next battleground for game theory war-planners. When India, an ally of Israel, became the nation honored by the Obama administration’s first state dinner, that occasion gave reason for concern due to the dynamics already at work in the background.

See "What Is Israel’s Role in the Destabilization of Pakistan?"’s-role-in-the-destabilization-of-pakistan/

In the asymmetry that typifies modern warfare, those who are few in number have no alternative when pursuing an expansionist agenda but to wage their wars by way of deception. To maintain its perceived status as a perennial victim, Israeli aggression must proceed non-transparently. Its only option is to operate with duplicitous means, including leveraging the power of its insider influence to advance an agenda from the shadows.

Thus the strategic necessity that this extremist enclave befriend the U.S.-with the intent to betray that friendship to advance its geopolitical goals. Thus the strategic need to create a relationship of trust with a post-WWII super power-in order to defraud us. How else could Colonial Zionists wage their wars except with our military? How else could Jewish nationalists induce our aggression absent the widely shared belief that Israel is not an aggressor but a victim?

Winning Wars from the Inside Out

Game theory war-planners manipulate the shared mental environment by shaping the perceptions and impressions that become consensus opinions. With a combination of well-timed crises, fixed intelligence and a complicit media, policy-makers can be induced to support a predetermined agenda-not because lawmakers are Evil Doers but because the public mindset has been pre-conditioned to respond to manipulated thoughts, emotions and beliefs.

Without the mass murder of 9-11, would America’s credibility be in tatters and its creditworthiness in jeopardy? By steadily displacing facts with false beliefs, those duplicitous few-within-the-few amplify the impact of their deceit. By their steady focus on the mental environment, game theory war-planners can defeat an opponent with vastly superior resources.

Today’s intelligence wars are waged in plain sight and under the cover of shared beliefs. By manipulating consensus opinion, psy-ops wars can be won from the inside out by inducing a targeted populace to freely choose the very forces that imperil their freedom.

Thus in the Information Age the disproportionate power wielded by those with outsized influence in media, popular culture, think tanks, academia and politics-domains where Zionist influence is pervasive not only in the U.S. but also in other nations induced to war on false pretenses.

Germany offers a case study in manipulation of the public mindset in plain sight and under the banner of a free press. In 2003, Zionist media mogul Haim Saban acquired the second largest media conglomerate in Germany. Why? As Saban investment banker Steve Rattner explained his client’s motivation: "Because Germany is important to Israel." Or, as Saban concedes: "I have only one issue and that issue is Israel."

By 2005, Saban had succeeded in electing Angela Merkel as German Chancellor. She quickly became the European Union’s most reliable and forceful advocate for Israel. By November 2009, she was prepared to sponsor in Berlin an unprecedented joint session of the German and Israeli governments. Following his political success in Germany, Saban acquired in 2007 a controlling interest in Univision, a Latino-focused network serving the fastest-growing voting bloc in the U.S.

Media manipulation serves as an essential force-multiplier to wage intelligence wars from the periphery or, as with Haim Saban, in plain sight. At the operational core of such psy-ops are game theory war-planners skilled at personality profiling and masterful at anticipating responses to staged provocations and then incorporating those responses into their arsenal.

In the case of Iraq, our (mathematically) foreseeable response to 9-11 led, in practical effect, to Israel’s deployment of our military to invade Iraq. For aggressors adept at psy-ops warfare, facts are only an inconvenience to be overcome when waging war by way of deception. Thus the key role played by consensus-shapers featured in mainstream media outlets who focus not on informing the public but on mental conditioning.

For targeted populations dependent on facts and informed consent to protect their freedom and preserve the rule of law, such treachery poses the greatest possible threat. Yet even now many Americans believe that Israel is not an aggressor but a victim and even an ally despite facts confirming a multi-decade pattern of expansionist nationalism and geopolitical deception.

Adhering to an Enemy

The U.S. is far less secure than before 9-11. Tel Aviv clearly intends to continue its serial provocations as evidenced by its ongoing expansion of settlements and its continuing blockade of Gaza. Israel has shown no willingness to negotiate in good faith. With few exceptions, Barack Obama has named as senior advisers either Zionists are those known to be strongly pro-Israeli.

The greatest threat to world peace is not Islam. The most fundamental threat that underlies all others is our "special relationship" with a skilled agent provocateur. Without U.S. support for an enclave of nuclear-armed religious extremists, the common source of this threat could long ago have been identified and steps taken to ensure its containment.

In the same way that lengthy pre-staging was required to induce the U.S. to invade Iraq, a similar strategy is now underway to persuade the U.S. to invade Iran or support an attack by Israel. Pakistan is also now on the agenda of those marketing The Clash narrative with its vision of a perpetual war against "militant Islam." Similar mental conditioning is again at work, including the high profile branding of the requisite Evil Doer: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinajad.

From its outset, the Zionist enterprise sought supremacy in the Middle East. To date, its alliance with the U.S. has enabled the deployment of American military might in pursuit of goals set by Jewish nationalists more than a half-century before a Christian Zionist U.S. president was induced to extend nation-state recognition. Harry Truman made that fateful decision despite his fears that Israel would become what Zionist lobbyists assured him it would not become-and what it immediately became: a racist and theocratic state.

Only one nation had the means, motive, opportunity and stable nation state intelligence required to take the U.S. to war in the Middle East while making it appear that Islam-not Israel-is the problem. When a long-deceived American public-especially the U.S. military-grasps the common source of this devastating duplicity, the response will shift the geopolitical landscape. The facts suggest that "sympathy for Israel" is not among the probable reactions.

If Barack Obama continues to cater to these extremists, this Nobel peace laureate can rightly be blamed when the next attack features the usual orgy of evidence pointing to a pre-staged Evil Doer. Should another mass murder occur, that incident may well be traceable to the U.S.-Israeli relationship and to the failure of our policy-makers to protect America-and world peace-from this enemy within.

  1. Jeff Gates  January 5, 2010 at 1:44 pm

    Thanks for you comment. This is all about extremism in the name of faith. Both Islam and Christianity are relative newcomers to the manipulation of thought and emotion (aka faith) in order to influence behavior by targeting a shared mindset. Both are derivatives of a “faith” tradition that has had several thousand more years of practice at displacing facts with what “the mark” can be deceived to believe. Thus the key role of the agent provocateur, particularly when sustained over long periods of time such that a “Clash” can emerge as a plausible and seamless segue from Cold War hatred to the latest “consensus” hatred — The Clash of Civilizations originally penned by Zionist Bernard Lewis and popularized by Samuel Huntington, the requisite Ivy League WASP. Those profiled specialize in pitting two sides against the middle while profiting off the misery of both. I think you’ll be surprised to find HOW this deceit works in plain sight. For that, please read Guilt By Association (on the Criminal State website) and other analyses both on the Vets Today site and on Criminal State. Master the “how” of this systemic duplicity and the “who” and “why” will come more clearly into focus. The “glaring facts” are often catalyzed by those who can succeed only by operating in the shadows. These analyses are meant to shine a glaring light into those darkest of shadows where faith-based decision-making threatens all those who wish to be governed by the fact-based rule of law. Turn your glare there.

    Again, thanks for your comment.

    Hate to distract you from your agenda but radical islam stands on its own as a formidable enemy. That deserves some evaluation and mention. Acts of terror such as the one attempted on Christmas by the underwear bomber stand alone. The slaughter of American troops at Ft. Hood stands on its own. The action of the Taliban in Pakistan which has killed thousands of people since October, stands on its own. The suicide bomber who killed at least 96 at Volleyball Game in Pakistan deserves some of your focus. We can’t be pointing fingers and ignoring national security. There are some glaring facts that should not be ignored:

    ‘Wow’ – You said: “Don’t you ever disrespect the brave less than 1% who fight, die and are disabled fighting for this great nation.”

    Who exactly do you think we are? We are for the most part – veterans. I am, USMC.

    A lot of us are disabled.

    My husband fought in the Easter Offensive at Quang Tri as a UH-1 doorgunner, 1st Cavalry, US Army… doing medevacs for the ARVN, in combat, at Quang Tri, (because the medevacs companys already redployed home leaving only a few dust-offs), search and rescues, (Special Forces was gone) and much, much more… as well as providing gunship support. He and every one in his Combat Aviation Group gave above and beyond… but to them… they were just doing their job and trying to stay alive… everyday.

    I worked in the hangar at El Toro that was the main source of radiation contamination at Superfund site – El Toro… right after all the JP5 jet fuel leaked into the water that we drank.

    Hidden disabilities are very real… from toxins and TBI/PTSD. Yet, I could write a book on the way the government has disrespected my husband’s tour for decades…

    People like the people here at VT who have been and continue working for a positive difference for YOU have been there, done that and have the T-Shirt too.

    That was a good suggestion – maybe this information should come out in comic book form so more people can understand it.

    An excellent article about how deceitful events are staged, the public opinion manipulated and the minds conditioned for wars. Thank you Mr. Gates for having the courage to write about what mainstream media try to hide from the people and doing it in a way everybody can understand.
    The PNAC gang, among them Cheney, Libby and Wolfowitz wrote in their paper “Project for The New American Century” that what was needed to proceed was “a new Pearl Harbour”. The tragic events of 9/11 were exactly what they sought for and/or intentionally provoked, as the necessary excuse to INDUCE the USA to fight Israel’s wars, by invading Iraq and Afghanistan.
    Little has been said about False Flag operations, a specialty of the Zion-Talmudists, and about the INDUCED TERRORISM, where by deceit and through proxies the Israeli push one or the other faction to commit acts of terror, in order to discredit the cause they are fighting for, make them appear as blood thirsty monsters or con the country victim of the attack to react, like they successfully did with the USA, or provoke a reaction, intended to fuel a never ending-escalating conflict (Sunni against Shiite, Kurds against both, India against Pakistan, Georgia against Russia, etc.).
    In my judgment, the SAYANIM (Zionist foot soldiers) who, infiltrated in the USA, as a 5th Column (Lieberman, Wolfowitz, Perl, Rubin, Feith, Harman, Addington, Ledeen, Frum, Horrowitz, AIPAC’s members, etc.) should be tried and condemned for high treason against the American people, for the tens of thousands of Americans slain or maimed for life and for the millions of unnecessary deaths, tremendous hardship and enormous suffering among the Iraqi and Afghan people. The evidence against them is overwhelming.

  7. Jeff Gates  December 9, 2009 at 10:56 pm

    It’s not the leaders in our government that are problematic, it’s those working for a foreign government that are imbedded inside our government that are the problem. Plus those that give them aid and comfort and, as the Framers put it, "adhere" to them. That’s also known as treason. It’s because of the respect I have for our vets that I write on this site. I am a Vietnam vet. With all due respect, I urge that you respect yourself enough to follow the facts — wherever they may lead. Our nation and the rule of law depend on it–along with the freedom that all of us were dispatched abroad to defend.

    It’s amazing the crap some will believe. And don’t worry night flyer. Having served 3 combat tours in Iraq. I can tell you. The NCO’s and soldiers of our armed forces are more than up to any task put b4them. So while you may not like your leaders in the government, have some ******* respect for what they are doing. You people disgust me. And where can I find these books. Under fiction or in the comic book section. I guess it takes all kinds.

    Medicly retired Nov. 2008. I’ve given this country all I have and would do it again. Reguardless of your view of the war. Don’t you ever disrespect the brave less than 1% who fight, die and are disabled fighting for this great nation.

    Guilt by Association is a great read. I look forward to his next book in the series, and recommend it to all. The ‘Guilt’ series is great fodder for a new magazine’s content.

    Thanks for this. Short-term, we’re looking to sell copies of Guilt By Association, the first release in the Criminal State series where this analysis is developed in book-length format. Hoping to identify sponsors so the first edition inventory can be sent to opinion-makers worldwide, bypassing a media largely dominated by those chronicled in these accounts. Also happy to sell the books in case lots for $500/case of 28. Please take a look at and contact me at [email protected]. Again, many thanks. Happily, this problem can now be solved. Most people have no idea HOW such duplicity can proceed in plain sight With the tools to grasp how, they will figure out for themselves who and why. That’s why accountability will commence.

    I hope the validity of this idea can be seen. Really… ‘older and wiser veterans’ and ‘wise before their years younger veterans’… collectively… we know so much… but HOW do you tell a whole nation that has been spoon-fed garbage for years and years?

    You spoon-feed them the truth… at first… until they can handle it on their own.

    Oh yeah! And a book feature article too… I wonder what books are going to be previewed? :-)… besides other books that will keep others attention. Inspiring books and Childrens books and political books and….

    Letter from the Editor… Sound Off Page for Readers… feature on current veterans running for offices… Seasonal ideas… news story… family health (preventing the flu during flu season)… news story… budget and organizing tips… benefits information… news story… personal story of a military family… news story… Cool web-links feature… Living with PTSD/TBI/Disability feature… news story… Book Review… Fashion Review… and some consistent end of the magazine ending.

    I’ve never considered how to put a magazine together until this brain-storm… so please forgive any and all naivety and inexperience. But, SOMEBODY can do it!

    My first suggestion would be to find friends that believe in the same principals that can afford to help start and generate more friends to help start this up… without selling out.

    This may seem off-topic… but if the people that are pulling our country’s strings are using mass-media and psychological human conditioning… and it is working for them… shouldn’t we take that into consideration and consider it as an option for truth?

    You know… when you gave a dog medicine it doesn’t like… you put it in something they do like… if it works for them… it should work for us humans… without the Alpo.

    Oh yeah… Featured articles that address how to contact your congressperson and senators and who-ever else.

    Featured articles that show-case new, and some older veterans that are running for office. Get people excited to support ‘one of their own.’

    I know the people here know more of what needs to be addressed.

    Pack the magazine with news… but put glossy attention getters in between.

    This can start small, yet high quality… focus on military towns first and work on subscriptions.

    The whole idea i to helps make the troops, veterans and their families aware of the politics affecting their lives and how they can connect and make a positive difference… without the pitchforks and torches! 🙂
