Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing,
but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.
You will know them by their fruits.
Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles?
Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.
A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.
Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
–– Matthew 7:15-20 New King James Version (NKJV)
In this post you can find few examples of
“you will know them by their fruits”
The U.S. Wars Plan
General Wesley Clark (Retired) revealed 2001 USA war plan to invade Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Iran.
In an interview on March 2, 2007, U.S. General Wesley Clark (Ret.) explained that just 10 days after September 11, 2001, the Bush Administration formulated a plan to take out these 7 countries in 5 years: Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Iran.
The U.S. Debt
In 2020 each taxpayer’s share of the US National Debt is $859,000. Each newborn US citizen is already a slave to this debt…
To whom this money is owned? [ https://www.usdebtclock.org/ ]
Debt as of Jan 1989 ( Start of Bush senior presidency ) was $2,697,957,000
“Legacy” of presidency of Bush Sr, Clinton, Bush Jr, and Obama:
Total Debt as of Jan 2017 ( end of Obama’s presidency)
To whom taxpayers owe this debt ???
Debt “Snapshot” from July 2020:
- US Published National Debt $26,324,630,895,179
- The Truth $132,538,362,905,000
- Each Taxpayer’s Share: $859,000
U.S. Published National Debt consists of:
- debt held by the public
- intragovernmental holdings, including debt held by Social Security and Medicare trust funds
It does not include total unfunded Social Security and Medicare promises.

The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)
The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is a civilian foreign intelligence service of the federal government of the United States, tasked with gathering, processing, and analyzing national security information from around the world, primarily through the use of human intelligence (HUMINT). The CIA has increasingly expanded its role, including covert paramilitary operations.
The CIA was formed September 18, 1947 and established its first training facility, the Office of Training and Education, in 1950.
When the CIA was created, its purpose was to create a clearinghouse for foreign policy intelligence and analysis.
Today its primary purpose is to collect, analyze, evaluate, and disseminate foreign intelligence, and to perform covert actions.
It is estimated that CIA has currently 21,575 employees.
Details of the overall United States intelligence budget are classified.
Under the Central Intelligence Agency Act of 1949, the Director of Central Intelligence is the only federal government employee who can spend “un-vouchered” government money.
In 1994 Congress accidentally published a budget of $43.4 billion (in 2012 dollars).
The government showed its 1997 budget was $26.6 billion for the fiscal year.
The government has disclosed a total figure for all non-military intelligence spending since 2007;
the fiscal 2013 figure is $52.6 billion.
The CIA has been called into question for:
- using torture,
- human experimentation,
- covert top secret projects (e.g. drugs, weapons )
- targeted killings and assassinations,
- funding and training of groups and organizations that would later participate in killing of civilians and other non-combatants,
- would try or succeed in overthrowing democratically elected governments,
- lack of financial and whistleblower controls which has led to waste and fraud [ and covert top secret projects ].
Despite of huge budget CIA has failed (below are only few examples):
- to prevent assassination of president JFK ( one of conspiracy theories suggests that CIA was responsible for it).
- CIA has also failed to prevent 9/11 attacks (one of conspiracy theories suggests it was involved in it).
On the other hand, CIA has provided justification and “reasons” (often fabricated, e.g. weapons of mass distraction in Iraq ) for multitude of (post WWII) U.S. military operations and wars.
Some of the CIA “Fruits”
CIA Covert Experiments ( documentary )
In this documentary, we reveal how for decades, the CIA has been using unconsenting people (psychiatric patients, prisoners, even unwitting members of the public) as guinea pigs in thousands of different and deeply disturbing experiments.
It’s the height of the Cold War and the United States government is paranoid to combat the spread of Communism. The CIA launches a highly classified, top secret research program into the covert use of biological and chemical agents. In simulated attacks on enemy populations, entire cities in America are contaminated with bacteria, exposing millions of Americans to germ warfare. But the real focus of the research is on mastering the art of mind control. Psychiatrists at top academic institutions work under secret contract with the agency. Psychiatric patients, prisoners, even unwitting members of the public are exposed to a startling array of experiments designed to facilitate interrogations, induce amnesia and program in new behavior. Every psychological technique is explored, including hypnosis, electroshock therapy and lethal cocktails of drugs.
What was the extent of these brainwashing experiments?
How did the CIA become involved in such far-reaching and disturbing research?
Join us as National Geographic presents: CIA Secret Experiments.
Project MKUltra (or MK-Ultra), also called the CIA mind control program, is the code name given to a program of experiments on human subjects that were designed and undertaken by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, most of which were cruel and illegal. Experiments on humans were intended to identify and develop drugs and procedures to be used in interrogations in order to weaken the individual and force confessions through mind control. The project was organized through the Office of Scientific Intelligence of the CIA and coordinated with the United States Army Biological Warfare Laboratories. Code names for drug-related experiments were Project Bluebird and Project Artichoke. [ — Wikipedia ]
False intelligence about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq
Critics of the Bush administration — like former State Department intelligence official Greg Thielmann and former U.S. ambassador Joseph Wilson — charge that in the buildup to war with Iraq, policy makers were “cherry-picking” intelligence from CIA and other intelligence agencies, publicizing only the information that would bolster the case for war and ignoring contrary evidence. Richard Perle of the Defense Policy Board denies that the administration was second-guessing the intelligence agencies, and accuses the intelligence community of being blind to crucial connections between Saddam and terrorist organizations. Here are excerpts from their interviews with FRONTLINE.

President J.F. Kennedy assasination
On November 22, 1963 John Fitzgerald Kennedy ( 35th president of the United States ) was assasinated.

In 1979, the United States House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA) concluded that Kennedy was probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy.
The assassination of John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963 and the subsequent murder of prime suspect Lee Harvey Oswald by night club owner Jack Ruby have spurred numerous conspiracy theories. These include alleged involvement of the CIA, the Illuminati, the Mafia, Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson, Cuban Prime Minister Fidel Castro, the KGB, or some combination of these entities.
Jim Marrs, in his book Crossfire, presented the theory that Kennedy was trying to rein in the power of the Federal Reserve, and that forces opposed to such action might have played at least some part in the assassination. Marrs alleges that the issuance of Executive Order 11110 was an effort by Kennedy to transfer power from the Federal Reserve to the United States Department of the Treasury by replacing Federal Reserve Notes with silver certificates. Author Richard Belzer named the responsible parties in this theory as American “billionaires, power brokers, and bankers … working in tandem with the CIA and other sympathetic agents of the government.”
Critics of the theory note that Executive Order 11110 was a technicality that only delegated existing presidential powers to the Secretary of the Treasury for administrative convenience during a period of transition.
In the 1960 presidential election, he narrowly defeated Republican opponent Richard Nixon, who was the incumbent vice president.
Nixon became the president after Lyndon Johnson.
President J.F. Kennedy was opposing the Secret Cabal and Federal Reserve.
He also stressed importance of Freedom of Press.
Speech of J.F. Kennedy from April 27, 1961
The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it.
Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control. And no official of my Administration, whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know.
But I do ask every publisher, every editor, and every newsman in the nation to reexamine his own standards, and to recognize the nature of our country’s peril. In time of war, the government and the press have customarily joined in an effort based largely on self-discipline, to prevent unauthorized disclosures to the enemy. In time of “clear and present danger,” the courts have held that even the privileged rights of the First Amendment must yield to the public’s need for national security.
Today no war has been declared–and however fierce the struggle may be, it may never be declared in the traditional fashion. Our way of life is under attack. Those who make themselves our enemy are advancing around the globe. The survival of our friends is in danger. And yet no war has been declared, no borders have been crossed by marching troops, no missiles have been fired.
If the press is awaiting a declaration of war before it imposes the self-discipline of combat conditions, then I can only say that no war ever posed a greater threat to our security. If you are awaiting a finding of “clear and present danger,” then I can only say that the danger has never been more clear and its presence has never been more imminent.
It requires a change in outlook, a change in tactics, a change in missions–by the government, by the people, by every businessman or labor leader, and by every newspaper. For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.
Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed. It conducts the Cold War, in short, with a war-time discipline no democracy would ever hope or wish to match.
Nevertheless, every democracy recognizes the necessary restraints of national security–and the question remains whether those restraints need to be more strictly observed if we are to oppose this kind of attack as well as outright invasion.
Leroy Fletcher Prouty (January 24, 1917 – June 5, 2001) served as Chief of Special Operations for the Joint Chiefs of Staff under President John F. Kennedy. A former colonel in the United States Air Force, he retired from military service to become a bank executive. He subsequently became a critic of U.S. foreign policy, particularly the covert activities of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) about which he had considerable inside knowledge.
According to Prouty, people within the intelligence and military communities of the United States government conspired to assassinate Kennedy. He maintained that their actions were a coup d’état to stop the President from taking control of the CIA after the Bay of Pigs Invasion.
Prouty stated that the assassination was orchestrated by Edward Lansdale and that Lansdale appeared in photographs of the “three tramps.” In 1975, Prouty appeared with Richard Sprague at a news conference in New York to present what they believed was photographic evidence of a conspiracy.

- The CIA and the Federal Reserve retained and increased their powers.
- President Lyndon B. Johnson is chiefly remembered for escalating the United States military involvement in Vietnam.
- DEATH… While the US suffered more than 58,000 dead in the war, an estimated two million Vietnamese civilians were killed, another 5.3 million injured and about 11 million became refugees in their own country ( by US government figures).

Twin Towers Event
The official government position holds that the collapse of all three towers was due to fires inside of the 3 buildings
(note: the third tower was the 47-story World Trade Center 7 which was never hit by a plane, and only office fire was reported ).
In September 2005, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) published the results of its investigation into the collapse.
NIST had reached a predetermined conclusion by ignoring, dismissing, and denying the evidence.
Critics claim the report is an insult to intelligence of american people…
“…new forensic investigation into the collapse of the three World Trade Center towers on 9/11, published in Europhysics News – a highly respected European physics magazine – claims that “the evidence points overwhelmingly to the conclusion that all three buildings were destroyed by controlled demolition.” [ Source >> ]

The “Smoking Gun” video:
Do gas stations and Walmarts have more security cameras than the Pentagon???
Considering that the Pentagon is the headquarters building of the United States Department of Defense and a symbol of the U.S. military, it is very hard to believe that the above video is the only video (released to the public) showing the attack on Pentagon ( showing no plane but only the blast )… Do gas stations and Walmarts have more security cameras than the Pentagon???
The Pentagon is the headquarters building of the United States Department of Defense. As a symbol of the U.S. military, the phrase The Pentagon is also often used as a metonym for the Department of Defense and its leadership.
Located in Arlington County, Virginia, across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C., the building was designed by American architect George Bergstrom and built by contractor John McShain. Ground was broken on 11 September 1941, and the building was dedicated on 15 January 1943. General Brehon Somervell provided the major motivating power behind the project; Colonel Leslie Groves was responsible for overseeing the project for the U.S. Army.
The Pentagon is the world’s largest office building, with about 6,500,000 sq ft (600,000 m2) of space, of which 3,700,000 sq ft (340,000 m2) are used as offices. Some 23,000 military and civilian employees, and another 3,000 non-defense support personnel, work in The Pentagon. It has five sides, five floors above ground, two basement levels, and five ring corridors per floor with a total of 17.5 mi (28.2 km) of corridors. The central five-acre (20,000 m2) pentagonal plaza is nicknamed “ground zero” on the presumption that it would be a prime target in a nuclear war.
At the time of the [ September 11 ] attacks, The Pentagon was under renovation and many offices were unoccupied, resulting in fewer casualties. Only 800 of 4,500 people who would have been in the area were there because of the work. Furthermore, the area hit, on the side of the Heliport facade, was the section best prepared for such an attack. The renovation there, improvements which resulted from the Oklahoma City bombing, had nearly been completed. It was the only area of The Pentagon with a sprinkler system, and it had been reconstructed with a web of steel columns and bars to withstand bomb blasts. The steel reinforcement, bolted together to form a continuous structure through all of The Pentagon’s five floors, kept that section of the building from collapsing for 30 minutes—enough time for hundreds of people to crawl out to safety.
The area struck by the plane also had blast-resistant windows—2 inches thick and 2,500 pounds each—that stayed intact during the crash and fire.
It had fire doors that opened automatically and newly built exits that allowed people to get out.
Contractors already involved with the renovation were given the added task of rebuilding the sections damaged in the attacks. This additional project was named the “Phoenix Project,” and was charged with having the outermost offices of the damaged section occupied by 11 September 2002. — Wikipedia
PS It seems the Pentagon attackers made extra effort to hit the specific side of the Pentagon… for reasons described above?
The Patriot Act
The USA PATRIOT Act (commonly known as the Patriot Act) is an Act of the United States Congress that was signed into law by U.S. President George W. Bush on October 26, 2001. USA PATRIOT is an acronym that stands for Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism.
The Patriot Act was written following the September 11 attacks in an effort to dramatically tighten U.S. national security, particularly as it related to foreign terrorism. In general, the act included three main provisions:
- expanded abilities of law enforcement to surveil, including by tapping domestic and international phones;
- eased interagency communication to allow federal agencies to more effectively use all available resources in counterterrorism efforts; and
- increased penalties for terrorism crimes and an expanded list of activities which would qualify someone to be charged with terrorism.
Critics of the Patriot Act suggest that it sacrificed constitutional protections of liberty and privacy.
In his article “Taking Liberty with Freedom,” author Richard P. Moore reminds us that the USA Patriot Act, signed by President Bush on Oct. 26 [ 2001] in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, “gives the government the kind of sweeping powers of arrest, detention, surveillance, investigation, deportation, and search and seizure that … assault … our most basic freedoms.”
The cost of 9/11 – in dollars
$7 billion: Amount paid out through the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund to the survivors of the 2,880 people killed and 2,680 injured in the attacks.
$8.7 billion: Estimated lifetime potential earnings lost of the victims who perished in the World Trade Center towers.
$500 million: Amount the city of New York paid in overtime compensation to clean up Ground Zero.
$5 billion: Direct government aid to U.S. airlines to cover losses incurred during three days of grounded flights immediately after 9/11 and sustained through the end of the year. The government also extended $10 billion in future loan guarantees.
$21.8 billion: Cost to replace the buildings and infrastructure in New York destroyed in the attacks.
$500 million: Cost to repair the Pentagon after the attack.
$40 billion: Insured losses related to the 9/11 attacks, including property, business interruption, aviation, workers compensation, life and liability insurance.
$192 million: Cost to run the NYPD’s counter-terrorism and intelligence activities for one year.
$5 million: Amount the NYPD has earmarked from a Homeland Security grant to buy a high-speed, bullet-proof boat designed to respond to a suicide or live shooter attack in the city’s port area.
$408 billion: Cost to operate the Department of Homeland Security since it was created in 2002.
$80.1 billion: Civilian and military intelligence gathering costs in 2010 – more than double what was spent in 2001.
$43 billion: Minimum cost of 10 years worth of U.S. airport security. Passengers cover roughly 40 percent each year through the passenger security tax of $2.50 per flight.
$1.1 billion: Estimated price to modify and add stealth features to a fleet of 73 MH-60 Black Hawk helicopters, two of which are thought to have been used in the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden, according to Richard Aboulafia, an aviation analyst at the Teal Group Corporation.
$1.3 trillion: Cost of the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan to date in 2011 dollars, according to Pentagon appropriations.
$4 trillion: Total war costs through 2050, if you include veterans’ care, war-related foreign aid, and interest paid on Pentagon appropriations.
The War on Terror
The War on Terror, also known as the Global War on Terrorism, is (continued by Obama and still ongoing) an international military campaign launched by the United States government (George W. Bush) after the September 11 attacks. It resulted in invasion of Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria.
Human Cost of the Post-9/11 Wars: Lethality and the Need for Transparency
All told, between 480,000 and 507,000 people have been killed in the United States’ post-9/11 wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.
This tally of the counts and estimates of direct deaths caused by war violence does not include the more than 500,000 deaths from the war in Syria, raging since 2011, which the US joined in August 2014.
But, because of limits in reporting, the numbers of people killed in the United States post-9/11 wars, tallied in this chart, are an undercount.
Many non-governmental organizations (NGOs) attempt to track civilian, militant, and armed forces and police deaths in wars.
Yet there is usually great uncertainty in any count of killing in war.
While we often know how many US soldiers die, most other numbers are to a degree uncertain.
Indeed, we may never know the total direct death toll in these wars.
For example, tens of thousands of civilians may have died in retaking Mosul and other cities from ISIS but their bodies have likely not been recovered.
In addition, this tally does not include “indirect deaths.”
Indirect harm occurs when wars’ destruction leads to long term, “indirect,” consequences for people’s health in war zones, for example because of loss of access to food, water, health facilities, electricity or other infrastructure.
How many people have died in recent wars?
At least 108 million people were killed in wars in the twentieth century.
By far the most costly war in terms of human life was World War II (1939–45), in which the total number of fatalities, including battle deaths and civilians of all countries, is estimated to have been 56.4 million, assuming 26.6 million Soviet fatalities and 7.8 million Chinese civilians were killed.
Estimates for the total number killed in wars throughout all of human history range from 150 million to 1 billion.
Note: In addition to those deaths caused directly by violence – for instance those from gunshot or explosions – a significant proportion of lives lost in conflict are indirect, due to disease, starvation or exposure. This is particularly true where conflicts lead to famine or outbreaks of disease among the civilian population. But historically, such indirect deaths were also a major cause of military fatalities
Covid-19 – Pandemic 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic, also known as the coronavirus pandemic, is an ongoing global pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2).
The outbreak was first identified in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. The World Health Organization declared the outbreak a Public Health Emergency of International Concern on 30 January 2020 and a pandemic on 11 March. As of 8 July 2020, more than 11.9 million cases of COVID-19 have been reported in more than 188 countries and territories, resulting in more than 546,000 deaths; more than 6.5 million people have recovered. Primary treatment is symptomatic and supportive therapy.
There is no known vaccine or specific antiviral treatment [pharmaceutical companies promise to have vaccine by end of 2020].
Authorities worldwide have responded by implementing travel restrictions, lockdowns, workplace hazard controls, and facility closures.
Many places have also worked to increase testing capacity and trace contacts of infected persons.
The pandemic has caused global social and economic disruption, including the largest global recession since the Great Depression.
It has led to the postponement or cancellation of sporting, religious, political, and cultural events, widespread supply shortages exacerbated by panic buying, and decreased emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases. Schools, universities, and colleges have been closed either on a nationwide or local basis in 172 countries, affecting approximately 98.5 percent of the world’s student population.
Cover Ups and misinformation about the virus has circulated through both social media and mass media.
Perhaps this interview can provide better understanding about what is going on and why…
- Lock Down has already caused social and economic disaster: the largest global recession since the Great Depression
- Mandatory Vaccination – it will bring huge monetary gains by “big pharma” ( and opportunity for culling population at the same time )
- Mandatory Digital ID due to “need” for Contact Tracing: – it will result in Orwellian Total Surveillance of the population
- Media Propaganda pushing for One World Government aka the New World Order
Illuminati: The Real Story
This video explains XXth century history ( wars and revolutions) as an unfolding of the long term plans of Illuminati conspiracy leading towards the New World Order:
The Illuminati: The Secret Society That Hijacked the World
A deep dive into the origins, history, members, and workings of the Illuminati from a well-known and respected expert.
Chilling initiations. Big banks and money manipulations. Possible links to the Rockefellers, Rothschilds, Adamses, and Bushes. Reviewing the evidence, documents, and connections, The Illuminati: The Secret Society That Hijacked the World by award-winning journalist and author Jim Marrs shines a light on the history, workings, continuing influence, and pernicious and hidden power of this secret order.
Surveying experts?from those who dismiss the Illuminati as a short-lived group of little consequence to skeptics who dare question the government’s accounts and pronouncements?Marrs cuts through the wild speculation and the attempts to silence critical thinkers to tell the true story of this secret cabal. Gnosticism, mystery schools, the Roshaniya, Knights Templar, assassins, Rosicrucians, Skull and Bones, Knights of Malta, whistle blowers, the revolutions in France, Russia, and America, and the structure, symbols, and theology of the Illuminati are all covered.
Marrs takes a broad look at the group and their workings, investigating their origin as “The Ancient and Illuminated Seers of Bavaria,” the depiction on the United States one-dollar bill of an all-seeing eye and pyramid on the reverse of the Great Seal of the United States, and the Protocols?or procedures?for usurping national governments and gaining world domination, as well as the Illuminati symbolism found in today’s international corporate logos. Wealth, power, and intrigue come together in this in-depth exposé on the Illuminati, their history, connections to influential people, and their place in modern America. The Illuminati lifts the cloaks of secrecy protecting the powerful.
They talk about peace while perpetuating endless wars…
President Obama received Nobel Peace Prize in 2009. During his election campaign, he was promising to be the war-ending President, however during his presidency he had ordered airstrikes in at least seven different countries (that we know of). Countries bombed by the U.S. under the Obama administration: Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Yemen, Somalia, Iraq, and Syria.
A demagogue or rabble-rouser is a leader who gains popularity in a democracy by exploiting emotions, prejudice, and ignorance to arouse some against others, whipping up the passions of the crowd and shutting down reasoned deliberation. Demagogues overturn established norms of political conduct, or promise or threaten to do so.
Historian Reinhard Luthin defined demagogue thus:
“What is a demagogue? He is a politician skilled in oratory, flattery and invective; evasive in discussing vital issues; promising everything to everybody; appealing to the passions rather than the reason of the public; and arousing racial, religious, and class prejudices—a man whose lust for power without recourse to principle leads him to seek to become a master of the masses. He has for centuries practiced his profession of ‘man of the people’. He is a product of a political tradition nearly as old as western civilization itself.”
Demagogues have appeared in democracies since ancient Athens. They exploit a fundamental weakness in democracy: because ultimate power is held by the people, it is possible for the people to give that power to someone who appeals to the lowest common denominator of a large segment of the population. Demagogues usually advocate immediate, forceful action to address a crisis while accusing moderate and thoughtful opponents of weakness or disloyalty. If elected to high executive office, demagogues typically unravel limits on executive power and attempt to convert their democracy to dictatorship.
Examples: Hitler, most of the world leaders and most of the recent U.S. presidents.
Commencement Address on New World Order
President Bush spoke at the commencement of the Air University in Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama University on the New World Order. His remarks were made in the Fuel Cell Hanger at the base. In his remarks, President Bush praised the performance of the U.S. Air Force in the Persian Gulf war, and said a New World Order was now “within our reach.” The New World Order could emerge from the rubble that was the Cold War and the Warsaw Pact. He stressed the need for a policy of “active engagement” to prevent the eventual worsening of relations that followed each of the two World Wars. He said the New World Order was a responsibility, created by the U.S.’ successes, to achieve stability, economic progress and peace around the world. The responsibility of the U.S. was not to maintain perpetual global peace, but to contain aggression. Indigenous peoples must decide their own political futures. President Bush said he wanted the U.S. military out of the Persian Gulf as soon as possible, despite the presence of hundreds of thousands of refugees who the U.S. will aid but not militarily support. He said he would not have U.S. servicemen participate in a civil war in Iraq that has been going on for “ages.” Iraq would remain a “pariah” nation as long as Saddam Hussein remained in power in Iraq.
