The massive power of the United States’ lie, spy, provocation, subversion, terror, torture, war and mass murder apparatus was plainly evident in the murders of US President John Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King
Kennedy was murdered in Dallas, Texas in November 1963 by a US secret political police conspiracy. While Kennedy was a vehement anti-communist, he was not sufficiently aggressive and vicious for the US ruling elite.
As Kennedy came from the marriage of two big-time criminal families, he was originally considered perfectly safe for US imperialism (which in fact he always was!) and provided a new, youthful and even intellectual image for the United States.
With his father’s connections and fortune, Kennedy – mistakenly, as subsequent events proved – felt relatively independent to pursue a more restrained and subtle and moderately less aggressive course for US imperialism. He was concerned about the threat of nuclear war and saw that the long-term aspirations of US imperialism were being damaged by incessant aggression against other countries and rampant US super-exploitation in the world.
As President, John Kennedy sent US military “advisors” to fight against the Vietnamese people, but refrained from approving a massive military invasion, which was advocated by the dominant elements in the US ruling elite. After Kennedy was assassinated, the Gulf of Tonkin provocation was concocted and JFK’s successor Lyndon Johnson dispatched hundreds of thousands of US troops to Vietnam and conducted a vicious and murderous bombing campaign against that country.
Kennedy likewise gave the go-ahead for the CIA-sponsored invasion of Cuba in April, 1961 (which had been planned and organized by the previous Eisenhower administration), but he rejeсted sending in US military forces to supplant the defeated counter-revolutionaries in Cuba. This refusal was the last straw for the ultra-reactionary US ruling elite, and the CIA plotted and carried out Kennedy’s assassination.
The viciousness of the United States secret political police was further demonstrated by their setting up one of their own agents, Lee Harvey Oswald, as the fall guy for Kennedy’s murder. Before Oswald could speak out in his own defense, he was killed by another US agent right in the Dallas police station. To “investigate” Kennedy’s murder, a federal commission (Warren Commission) was set up, which of course fully “verified” the absurd postulate that a “jealous” Oswald – with unbelievable accuracy and speed and at a great distance — shot the President with an obsolete hunting rifle.
In 1968, John Kennedy’s brother Robert, who was then himself running for president and was set to investigate the real reason for his brother’s death, was likewise murdered by the United States’ lie, spy, criminal, provocation, subversion and regime change, terror, drug-runnning, torture, war and mass murder apparatus.
The US secret political police murder of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is discussed in our book “Silent Terror” (p. 72-74), https://arnoldlockshin.wordpress.com/ and will not be repeated here.
These murders of a United States president and the most important American people’s leader in the 20th century – King — occurred with complete impunity and cover-up.
No Constitution, Bill of Rights, “inalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” (US Declaration of Independence) had or can have the slightest significance. What happened to these leaders could happen to anyone else.
Правительство США жестоко нарушало мои права человека при проведении кампании террора, которая заставила меня покинуть свою родину и получить политическое убежище в СССР. См. книгу «Безмолвный террор — История политических гонений на семью в США» — «Silent Terror: One family’s history of political persecution in the United States» — http://arnoldlockshin.wordpress.com
Правительство США еще нарушает мои права, в течении более 12 лет отказывается от выплаты причитающейся мне пенсии по старости. Властители США воруют пенсию!! Всё это — ещё доказательство, что настоящий действующий закон в США — Закон джунглей.
ФСБ — Федеральная служба «безопасности» России — вслед за позорным, предавшим страну предшественником КГБ, выполняет приказы секретного, кровавого хозяина (boss) — американского ЦРУ (CIA). Среди таких «задач» — мне запретить выступать в СМИ и не пропускать большинства отправленных мне комментариев. А это далеко не всё…
