In fact, never mentioned by LBJ was that the attack on the Maddox was not unprovoked, as he presented. It was in fact, as documented by author Sheehan and others years later, the North Vietnamese response to what was known in the shadows of the Johnson administration as Operation Plan 34A. Described in government memos of the day, 34A was a series of raids that were “destructive undertakings” designed “to result in substantial destruction, economic loss and harassment” to North Vietnam. Combined, all of this was more than enough to ignite the Vietnam tinderbox. The attack on the Maddox was decidedly provoked — and the entire ensuing Vietnam War, which claimed over 50,000 American lives, was built on that lie.

Operation Plan 34A commences

Obama could be worse than LBJ. May God help the US.

The Racak Massacre, which was used to propitiate the war in Kosovo, was a deliberate fraud on the part of Clinton Administration CIA agent (and Bush family relative) William Walker.

1000 times so. He is close to getting us into war with Russia, Iran & China. All to save his inflated ego which is frightening beyond words. He is a spoiled brat. The presidency was handed to him by a corrupt media and a republican party that is filled with fellow travelers and cowards.
