In the “Storm Clouds Gathering” video (link at the bottom) “The Covert Origins of ISIS”, they talk about the equipment the US or NATO left behind – a breach of military strategy – if you leave it, destroy it.
This reminded me of a story told by L. Fletcher Prouty: On Okinawa the day after the Japanese surrender and he was talking with the Port Commander, ask him what they were going to do with all this equipment and materiel, the 4 square mile island was stacked 30′ high preparing for the invasion of Japan. “Sending it to Hawaii or California?’ “No, 1/2 going to Seoul and the other 1/2 going to Hanoi.” “What, why are they sending this stuff to those cities?” “No idea – those are the orders, just got em this morning.”. Couple years later: Korean War. And when the French began trying to reassert their colonial position they were a little surprised at all this new equipment being shot at them by Ho Chi Men. Ho defeats the French and General Lansdale and the CIA show up in South Vietnam in 1954, Bell Helicopter, etc. contracts, Da Nang landing in 1965, 58,000 US troops dead and approximately 2,000,000 South East Asians dead.
Notice a pattern?
Prouty was the Air Force liaison to the CIA for 9 years, had his office 2 doors from the Secretary of Defense. An Army pilot in WWII. He wrote “The Secret Team” which was surreptitiously removed from the Library of Congress along with the card catalog and all records of the book – you wonder who has the power to remove a book from the Library of Congress? He also wrote ‘JFK’ – a very good history of Vietnam and the JFK killing, the Oliver Stone movie was based on this book.
