Congratulations to Mr. Ames, for this excellent article. I was particularly struck by the investment bankers' conference call being substantiated by, of all people, a J.P. Morgan rep. Morgan, as you may or may not recall, was the force behind a small affray you may have heard of--the First World War. According to the Nyle report (or Nile or Niel--whichever spelling leads to its being most difficult to dig up). These hearings were conducted in the 1930s, and have required the most amazing perception-managment over many decades to distort and bury.
I would really like to learn more about this banker-first model, as the essential point about WWI was, to my mind, that no one planned it. But bankers and industrialists prospered exeedingly for over twenty years by starting rumors, leaking proposed weapon details... till one warm day a spark hit the pile they had so lovingly built up.
Scary? Damn right it is--as well as a similar buildup for the profits of "consolidated kewpie doll and cluster bomb international" (and their teachers pension plan shareholders), we are faced with several drug- and Christianity-addled nutbars who expect to immunize themselves from war crime tribunals by becoming "commander in chief"s for the duration of conveniently timed unending wars. And why not--with the worse-than-useless swamp Germans of the Hague in charge, Göbbels himself could have expected to get off "on religious grounds"!
So more banker ties to the inbred hill bandits of Georgia, please.
