by Robert Fantina, with a foreword by Cindy Sheehan
The United States has been at war for 227 years of its 244-year history. It is currently at war in seven countries and its special forces operate in 149 countries. While a full history of U.S. wars could fill bookshelves, author and journalist Robert Fantina has distilled this century-spanning succession of warfare into a single volume. His third book published with Red Pill Press, Propaganda, Lies and False Flags: How the U.S. Justifies Its Wars details all the major wars of American history, plus many of the minor and mostly forgotten ones.
From the wars against the Native Americans and the War of 1812, through the period when the U.S. became a super power, to the global killing fields of the past 70 years, Fantina shows how little the playbook has changed over the generations. Propaganda, lies, and false flags: these have been the means to bring the country to war, and they will remain so until we wake up to the deception.
“Meticulously detailed and thoroughly articulated, Bob Fantina’s latest book is an incredibly valuable resource for citizens across the world. Fantina’s core thesis, that propaganda and false flags are not outliers, but vital and significant aspects of US war making is imparted in such a manner readers will return to this book continually as a resource for not just understanding history, but for understanding current and future US wars.” —Matthew Hoh, Senior Fellow, Center for International Policy
“Keep this book on your shelf to quickly lay your hands on the false reasons for each past war, and many of the real reasons too. The latter are always shameful, which is why the former are invented. Not only is this a resource for countering new war lies by comparison with old ones, but with a limited number of nations on earth and the Pentagon’s penchant for attacking the same ones repeatedly, you may just find the very lies now on the news already debunked in this book.” —David Swanson, Executive Director of World Beyond War
