THE INFLUENCE OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH ON THE EISENHOWER ADMINISTRATION’S DECISION TO DIRECTLY INTERVENE IN VIETNAM
This manuscript was published somewhere in the last decade. I have no idea why the exact date of publication is not listed herein, but it gets weirder than that: Nowhere does it record who wrote this, either. Nevertheless, it is available online in both electronic and paperback format. I stumbled onto it while doing some some peripheral searches pertaining to Avro Manhattan’s book VIETNAM, WHY DID WE GO? and indeed, this does share subject matter with the Manhattan book, and does much to further corroborate Manhattan’s claims—something which should not be undervalued, since, vital as Manhattan’s work was and is, it was always underfootnoted. This manuscript, on the other hand, is consummately sourced throughout. In fact, this may be the greatest asset of this work: It opens the doors to so very many other works which, taken as a whole, clearly validate Avro Manhattan’s spectacular claims about the real origins and causes of the U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War; as well as the earlier French involvement, for that matter.
It all goes back to the Vatican. The Vatican did it. Not that the author of this manuscripte understands the entireity of this history; and he(she?) certainly does not understand as much as Manhattan did; notwithstanding, this work is a superb companion piece to the Manhattan book.
Indeed, the indications that this author does not understand the situation completely are very evident. For example, he continually uses the phrase “the Catholic Church” as being in back of the Vietnam War, but what he really means is the geopolitical state called “the Vatican” which hides behind and drives the cult of Catholicism, even as it controls the world’s intelligence agencies, foments strife among the nations, and profits from all of the above.
The author also believes that presidents make important decisions and are merely “influenced” by the “Catholic Church” and certain of its powerful adherents, rather than the raw and unpopular reality: Presidents TAKE ORDERS and are CONTROLLED by these, and any president who goes against this protocal quickly gets assassinated or is given the Richard Nixon treatment.
Furthermore, and along the same lines, this author also is deceived by the ruse that John Foster Dulles, and his father, and his grandfather, were faithful “presbyterians” whose outlook on geopolitics just coincidentally happened to line up 100% with the Vatican, rather than the reality that these, or certainly at least J.F. Dulles himself, was in fact an agent of the Jesuits. This author has no knowledge or understanding of the history and machinations of the Society of Jesus.
This work is also written rather pedantically. The author constantly tells the reader of three things about which he will be informing the reader, then he informs the reader of these three things, and then he recaps the three things about which he just informed the reader. And then he moves on to three other things and he does the same thing. He does this throughout the manuscript. This is not so much bad writing as it is formulaic, predictable, basic writing.
As a companion piece to Avro Manhattan’s VIETNAM, WHY DID WE GO?, this manuscript is an invaluable resource. The author does not understand all that he is exposing, but that does not matter, not if the reader unites this manuscript with the Manhattan book and others. On its own, this manuscript is of a more limited value, unless one is going to track down and read the very many resources which this manuscript assiduously cites, and then connects the dots to see the big picture which this author did not even understand, but he is most certainly on the right investigatory trail.
