Gulf of Tonkin & the Vietnam War

“In the summer of 1964, President Lyndon Baines Johnson needed a pretext to commit the American people to the already expanding covert war in South East Asia. In November of 2001, the LBJ Presidential library and museum released tapes of phone conversations with the President and then Defense Secretary Robert McNamara where they openly discussed plans to use the staged Gulf of Tonkin incident as a pretext to expand the war.” -Alex Jones, “Terrorstorm” (12mins)
On August 2nd, 1964, the USS Maddox destroyer was supposedly conducting reconnaissance in the Gulf of Tonkin when fired upon by North Vietnamese forces in Swatow gunboats. The Maddox, however, was not on a reconnaissance mission; it was part of a joint CIA-South Vietnamese covert intelligence operation called ‘Operation Plan 34A.

“Far from being an ‘unprovoked attack’ as President Lyndon Johnson had stated, the attack was an expected retaliation as a result of aggressive CIA-South Vietnamese maneuvers. Johnson himself acknowledged Operation Plan 34A in recently released White House tape recordings, ‘There have been some covert operations in that (Tonkin Gulf) area that we have been carrying on - blowing up some bridges and things of that kind, roads and so forth. So I imagine (the North Vietnamese) wanted to put a stop to it.’” -Paul Joseph Watson, “Order Out of Chaos” (27)

Once again the people were manipulated into believing a false-flag reason for entering the Vietnam War. This time the public was told a friendly ship came under unprovoked enemy attack, when in fact our ship was the aggressor.

“In late 2005, the National Security Agency declassified its own official history of the Gulf of Tonkin and admitted that intelligence agency officers had deliberately skewed the intelligence and claimed that Vietnamese patrol boats had attacked US Destroyers on Aug. 4th, 1964, when in reality they had done nothing even while being fired on by US forces.” -Alex Jones, “Terrorstorm” DVD (12 mins.)

On August 4th, 1964, the US Destroyers received radar and radio signals that were misinterpreted as being another enemy attack from the North Vietnamese navy. Supposedly a two-hour shoot-out ensued, but in reality there were likely no enemy ships out there. An hour after the incident, Captain John J. Herrick of the USS Maddox, sent a cable admitting the attack may not have been an attack after all.

“Review of action makes many reported contacts and torpedoes fired appear doubtful. Freak weather effects on radar and overeager sonarmen may have accounted for many reports. No actual visual sightings by Maddox. Suggest complete evaluation before any further action taken.” -Captain John J. Herrick, Aug. 4th, 1964

"I had the best seat in the house to watch that event, and our destroyers were just shooting at phantom targets - there were no PT boats there. There was nothing but black water and American firepower.” -Naval Aviator James Stockdale, from his 1984 book

With no justification whatsoever, on the evening of August 4th, Johnson stated, “the initial attack on the destroyer Maddox, on August 2nd, was repeated today by a number of hostile vessels.” Actually no US ships were fired upon, and there were likely no Vietnamese boats present either, but Johnson reported, “We believe at least two of the attacking boats were sunk.” Later on, however, in 1965 Johnson was quoted referring to the Tonkin incident admitting, “For all I know, our Navy was shooting at whales out there.”

“The Vietnam War killed one million Vietnamese and 58,000 Americans. It was launched after two incidents in August 1964, the first of which was provoked and the second never happened. With careful avoidance of the facts, then President Lyndon Baines Johnson was able to ram through the Gulf of Tonkin resolution, denouncing those who raised suspicious voices as anti-American, and receiving a validation for war.” -Paul Joseph Watson, Order Out of Chaos (26)

Good for you, Eric,
and Good for the soldiers out there to know the selfish motives of those instigating and propagandizing ALL WARS.

The dark forces need the human body shields to manipulate in order to control the massess and protect THEMselves.

Wake up the soldiers!

Always appreciate your work...but why so many Alex 'Kosher' Jones and Watson quotes?

There are better ones available no?

Eric Dubay said...

I've answered this question so many times, allow me to just copy/paste my response from the WWII post about the AJ and DI quotes:

The posts which are taken from my 2008 Atlantean Conspiracy book have quotes from Alex Jones, David Icke, Michael Tsarion, Jim Marrs, Texe Marrs, Paul Watson, G. Edward Griffin, Jordan Maxwell, Gary Allen and many other mainstream conspiracy authors. Since then I have done deeper research to reveal that, even though much of their information is correct, some of these authors are controlled opposition. 90% of what Alex and David talk about is spot on, it's the 10% about shape-shifting reptilians, alien moon bases, and how it's never the Jews that throws people off. Peace

Eric, this is a bit off topic AND I still have to contact you with many questions regarding yoga, nutrition, etc..
But I was wondering what is your take on the situation regarding Leo Horowitz, Alex Jones and David Icke being sued by Jewish activists? It is very confusing considering you support Horowitz but not so much Jones and Icke.. I thought Jones and Icke were part of the Zionists? Is this all just bullshit to confuse us? My brain hurts much more because of this, please share your thoughts brotha!


Eric Dubay said...

Good question. I'm confused by the situation as well. Alex and company are definitely controlled opposition, and Len and Sherri seem really nice and legit, but I've got some serious issues with the tenets and immorality of Judaism which they proudly support, which leaves them open to suspicion as well. I think it's all just one big mind-fuck blame-game designed to confuse us into distraction and apathy.

Yes, I remember now seeing the woman on MSM being the girl in the pix--if that is really her. Just taking everything with a grain of salt :)

I agree Eric, and something an associate of theirs mentioned that confused me for a bit, and then I looked up Khazarians (didn't know exactly their bit in history but had read a bit on your blog prior) and...sadly, some people you really had put a lot of high regards and trust for, when they throw that bit at you, I'm just like wow. You begin to wonder what side they stand on.
Even though they do a lot of good exposing Big Pharma, and community work, BUT I was just really shocked when I found out the bit on Khazars...

So, I just gotta take everything EVERYTHING with a grain of salt. I just have to research as much as I can to see the different sides, and then I can lean a bit in the direction that resonates most true with me.

Great advice.
