Splendid little war for America

If you’re like me, you didn’t learn too much about the “Splendid little war for America” back in 1898 – also known as the Spanish-American War. Not much is said about this little war, but it marks a major turning point for the United States. This pivotal, contrived war, was the banker’s ‘test-war’ to convince Americans that foreign entanglements were a good thing; and so, this was a “splendid little war” that set the template for all wars to follow; and America was brought from a non-interventionism posture into the beginnings of a world empire controlled by the international bankers. This was America’s first war for another country; and in this case, the excuse was to “liberate Cuba!”

The Spanish-American war had the classic trademarks of the wars we see today. So, what was the template?
1. Big false flag: The sinking of the Maine (zero evidence Spain had anything to do with this)
2. Bankers (National City Bank of New York) in control of the White House from behind the scene
3. Bankers pushing for the war (National City Bank of New York)
4. Americans propelled to the war by fake atrocity stories
5. Americans going overseas fighting for freedom and democracy

But after the provable false stories from the media about the actions of Spain —feeding Cubans to the sharks; the abuse of white women and children; roasting Cuban priests; butchered women and babies; and the depiction in the media about the Spanish being sub-human apes— the war was on, and everybody agreed it was a good and just war. Remember the incubator babies (Gulf war 1991), Gaddafi’s Viagra in Libya and Assad’s Sarin Gas? All false.

The splendid war was over in short order and everyone was happy. The Rockefellers got the sugar industry (sugar was so valuable at the time it was known as ‘white gold’) and the US took Puerto Rico, the Philippines and Guam from Spain and they grabbed Hawaii (not Spain’s) while they were at it.

We were told we would free the Cubans from Spain’s colonial rule, but when we took over, we called them not colonies but ‘possessions’, so that made it okay. In the Philippines, the rebels or the freedom fighters were fighting for self-determination against Spain, yet when we took over the Philippines, we betrayed these same freedom fighters that had just helped us. When it was all over, we had killed over 20,000 military men in the freedom movement and 200,000 more civilians… yes, it was a very splendid war indeed. This was the little war whose very successful template set the stage for all US wars to follow.
