Major Wars and Suppression of American Freedoms Planned BEFORE 9/11

Iran War Threats, Militarization of American Police and Spying on Americans All Started BEFORE 9/11
Many things which we’ve been told have only happened recently actually started a long time ago.
For example, the mainstream media claims that Iran is close to building a nuclear weapon. But the Christian Science Monitor notes that the U.S. has been claiming for more than 30 years that Iran was on the verge of nuclear capability.
And the decision to threaten to bomb Iran was made before 9/11.
As another example, journalists from across the spectrum have documented the militarization of police forces in the United States, including, CNN, Huffington Post, Forbes, Esquire, The Atlantic, Salon, and theCato Institute.
Indeed, police shooting peaceful “occupy” protesters with rubber bullets, tear gas and other projectiles and brutally beating them has brought this issue to the attention of the American public. See this, thisand this.
But the militarization of police started long before 9/11 … in the 1980s. As Radley Balko testified before the House Subcommittee on Crime:
Militarization [of police forces is] a troubling trend that’s been on the rise in America’s police departments over the last 25 years.
