Behind The Scenes Is The Real Play: “There Is Always A Hidden Agenda If You Dig Deeply Enough To Find It”
January 3rd, 2017
The comments that readers post are always valued, and many such as myself spend a lot of time reading them and gaining both insight and knowledge from what is presented and what you, the readers have found. These excerpts from two comments at SHTFplan are what gave me the desire to write on the topic of what happens behind the scenes being the true agenda:
“Relative to China/Vietnam, my only point is that Marxism was supposed to transcend everything, and was the end of history. Point being is that it did nothing of the sort.”

Chinese arms poured into North Vietnam. Granted China had a much smaller economy and hence less to give. Ho Chi Minh was largely a nationalist that adopted communism as a vehicle to remove the French and later US occupation. If one was in their shoes, seeing the absolute worst of capitalism in it colonial form, being denied the promise of the French not returning post WWII for their help fighting the Japanese, where else would he turn? Communism post WWII was largely the expansion of the USSR and consolidation in China.

My thanks to both of you gentlemen, as your comments and the information you present are always really great and thoughtful. You’re both spot on in your analyses. The roots of a problem (especially relating to the United States) always lie within facts that are intentionally either redacted or obfuscated to remove true responsibility for those actions. In this instance (with Vietnam), Kevin2 correctly pointed out how Ho Chi Minh was a nationalist who wanted the French out of Vietnam.
Even deeper, after World War II came to a close in the Pacific theater, Col. Aaron Bank met with Ho Chi Minh, who wanted to model Vietnam after the U.S. Constitution and asked for U.S. aid regarding the French. Truman refused to listen to him, and in order to keep close ties with the French, the aid was refused. The result was the Viet Minh and the French-Indochina War that eventually led to France’s expulsion (termed a “strategic withdrawal). Subsequently the U.S. followed suit and had a war of its own in Vietnam.
The hidden agendas drove the war: Johnson’s rubber plantation holdings there, along with contracts to supply the U.S. military with textiles produced from those holdings, and Johnson’s interests in Sea-Land Container corporation…all of which enriched him and the MIC (military industrial complex) at the time. Indeed, Rockefeller built an aluminum plant in the Soviet Union for half a billion dollars, and the Soviets sold products from that plant (and other firms) that supplied the NVA (North Vietnamese Army) during the Vietnam War.
The point is that there is always a hidden agenda if you dig deeply enough to find it. These hidden agendas are not random or coincidence: they are driving factors, not resulting factors in the shaping of our country and the world. Two excellent works that illustrate these principles are the books Confessions of an Economic Hitman and The Shock Doctrine: Fundamentals of Disaster Capitalism. Both works have numerous examples that illustrate the true reasons the United States government (an empire in the truest sense) has fostered the current world climate in its rapacious and unending quest for power and promulgation of the system.
