Rosie Reinforces 9/11 Position With Blog on Gulf of Tonkin
Will Mainstream Media Consider Declassified History 'Kook' Ravings As Well?
Aaron Dykes / Jones Report | March 27, 2007
The 1964 'imaginary' Gulf of Tonkin incident allowed President Johnson to expand the Vietnam War through the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution without a Congressional Declaration of War.
Actress Rosie O'Donnell's public statements on 9/11-- already carefully laid out on the solid ground of WTC 7's clear controlled demolition in her blog -- is now further backed up by an historical account of the Gulf of Tonkin as an "imaginary" event on her blog.
President Johnson used the 1964 staged event to expand dramatically the scale of the Vietnam War by ushering in the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution , as well as to rope in much needed domestic support with the Congress and public.
Not only does the Tonkin Incident provide precedent for the U.S. Government's staging events as a pretext for military action, it gives clues to painful emotive questions that many exposed to 9/11 Truth for the first time by Rosie may be asking-- Has anything like this ever happened before? How could our government be involved in something like this?
In her previous comments on WTC 7's collapse, O'Donnell concluded her heavily cited statements with supportive words for 9/11 Truth newbies:
lets start here
remember 2 breathe
Citing Tonkin also gives rebuttal to skeptical and defiant critics of O'Donnell's stance on 9/11-- there is a history of provocation, a history of deceptive "attacks" on the U.S. as pretext for war and a history of slow, stagnant answers and cover-up regarding those events-- how 'crazy', then, are questions about 9/11 in light of history?
Here is Rosie's blog entry from March 26 :
The Gulf of Tonkin Incident began with an “imaginary” attack by three North Vietnamese torpedo boats on the Maddox, a U.S. destroyer, in the Gulf of Tonkin on 2 August 1964. Two days later, that vessel and another U.S. destroyer in the area both reported themselves under renewed attack, although North Vietnam subsequently insisted that it hadn't attacked — and no attack is now believed to have occurred on the 4th of August.
Within hours, Johnson ordered retaliatory air strikes on the bases of the North Vietnamese boats and announced, in a television address to the American public the same evening, that U.S. naval forces had been attacked. In a message he sent to Congress the following day, the President affirmed that “the North Vietnamese regime had conducted further deliberate attacks against U.S. naval vessels operating in international waters.”
Johnson requested approval of a resolution “expressing the unity and determination of the United States in supporting freedom and in protecting peace in southeast Asia”. He said that the resolution should express support “for all necessary action to protect our Armed Forces” — but repeated previous assurances that “the United States… seeks no wider war”. As the nation entered the final three months of political campaigning for the 1964 elections (in which Johnson was standing for election), the president contended that the resolution would help “hostile nations… understand” that the United States was unified in its determination “to continue to protect its national interests.”
Tonkin was only one of several false-flag events discussed in Alex Jones' Terrorstorm which also covers Hitler's Reichstag fire , the attack on the U.S.S. Liberty , the 1953 U.S.-backed Iranian coup and Operation Himmler (in which a Polish 'invasion' on Germany was staged to start WWII)-- all government sponsored false-flag provocations. This list-- comprised of only some of the 20th century's declassified examples-- is in no way exhaustive.
As the twisted neo-con Paul Wolfowitz put it only months before the attacks on 9/11 :
"Military history is full of surprises, even if few are as dramatic or memorable as Pearl Harbor. Surprises happen so often, that is is surprising that we're still surprised by it ."
O'Donnell has been careful to put forward only the most solid information in her public 9/11 statements, as she knows the mainstream media would be quick to slander her on any weak points.
In fact, the media has been careful in drawing too much attention to O'Donnell at all over 9/11, perhaps sensing that 9/11 Truth is already too far out in the open-- even before exposing questions and queries to one television's largest female demographics on The View , which features O'Donnell.
The combination of O'Donnell going public on 9/11 and a report that Charlie Sheen will voice a theatrical version of Loose Change has made for an explosion in coverage and critique of the 9/11 Truth Movement in mainstream press, particularly with FOX News hosts Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity .
However, coverage of O'Donnell has stayed clear-- as usual-- of debating any real facts regarding 9/11, but has focused on typical character assassinations. Furthermore, coverage of Sheen's reported association with Loose Change has all but obscured Rosie's recent input into the 9/11 debate-- aside from misreporting that she is involved with the project.
Clearly, the establishment's 9/11 Official Story is in huge trouble if O'Donnell's going public has half the ripple effect that Sheen's going public had just over one year ago.
