Will A Mutiny In The Gulf Lead To An American Military Coup?
April 11, 2012
The US military will likely Mutiny rather than commit suicide by attacking Iran. This Mutiny can take one of two forms. They can just quietly inform the Pentagon and the President that if an order is given to launch the opening salvo of World War III not one shot will be fired. The US military can point to international law which makes a preemptive strike for no reason a war crime. The second form of a Mutiny would be a more overt refusal to follow orders at the time they are given.
Whatever form this coming Mutiny takes it will be supported by all men and women of Good Will everywhere in the world. That includes Israel where 80% of the population does not approve of war against Iranians who do not have a nuclear weapons program. A Mutiny will also completely eliminate the favored exit path the bankers have taken in the past from the Financial Panics and Depressions they had created. World War I was used in part to take us out of the Panic of 1907 but also to issue an elastic currency, the Federal Reserve Note, which would cover up Wall Street’s many frauds and to use inflation to pay for wars. The bankers refused to allow even a discussion of the reforms that could have easily ended the Great Depression. Instead of reform the bankers let three million Americans die from starvation. World War II ended the Depression but that cost us 58 million lives.
We need to consider what would happen if the US military mutinies and cancels World War III.
