    WAR AND PROFITS

     

    War is one of the most profitable ventures for banking institutions in the world. As you think about costs related to wars, most think merely about lives lost or taxes/expenses. I would like to ask you to reflect upon not what we loose during a war but, rather who gains from such acts.

     

    Who gains from the acts of war? Can a war be just? One could argue that WW11 was a "just war" for the allies but, if you examine who profited from the war, you will find that both sides were funded by the same families. Is that just? Is it ok for banking families to fund wars for a profit?One such family that is interesting to note is the Rockefeller family.

     

    The banking families that are affiliated with our own Federal Reserve (Rothschilds, Morgans, Rockefellers) helped to sponsor WW11 through the Bank of International Settlements.

    ...

     

    The Bank for International Settlements, which helped fund the Nazis before and during WWII, was created in 1930 by the world’s central banks, including the Federal Reserve Bank of NY.

     

     

    This is just one example of a questionable act that transpired in the name of profit during war. If you start to examine modern wars you will find that a pattern develops over time... the same families profit from every war. If you think this is a moot point, then consider former President Wilson's thoughts on the matter (he helped to establish The Federal Reserve)

     

     

    "A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men."- Woodrow Wilson

     

    SO the question becomes; do we continue to fight for such men in order that they can continue to profit solely for wealth and power?Should we continue to kill and die for such people:

     

     

    For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure--one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it. - David Rockefeller's Memoirs Random House
