Straits of Hormuz Equals Gulf of Tonkin
The Persian Gulf--Today, we learned that the Gulf of Tonkin incident never happened, it's official, and that it was a lie told by President Johnson, the State Department of that time, and that criminal who incredibly still goes by the name Robert McNamara (an ancient ancestor of Donald Rumsfeld, he was Sec. of Defense under Kennedy and Johnson). They lied then in 1964, and they're lying now about the same stupid scenario: that we were fired-on in the Straits of Hormuz. It's a lie, and even if it's true, we've provoked it before in that area. We don't belong there, and our presence there is to cause the kind of incident that would spark a war with Iran. Like Saddam Hussein's "weapons of mass destruction," it is a lie--a fiction, for money. It really is that simple.
