Thread: JFK Assassination

  1. #1

    Default JFK Assassination

    Perhaps known as one of the greatest murder mysteries of all time, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy has for years intrigued scholars, authors and the average American citizen. The assassination can be classified into two distinct categories: method and significance. Few would argue that too much emphasis has been given to the method and very little to the significance. This is exactly how the perpetrators would like it to be. Photographic evidence along with eyewitness testimony has already conclusively proven that JFK was shot by more than one assassin. The Mary Mormon photo clearly shows the profile of a shooter behind the picket fence on the grassy knoll. It is obviously someone wearing a policeman's uniform {some speculate it was J.D. Tippit}. This was the fatal head shot. Two other bullets struck the President; the first one entered at the base of the throat and the second struck him in the back. While the positions of the assassins makes for a good game of clue, the more important issue is the significance of the assassination.

    Many have speculated that the former Soviet Union, Cuba, the KKK, the Mafia, LBJ, CIA and the FBI all had strong motives to attempt this. However, given the connection of Lee Harvey Oswald to the CIA and Jack Ruby to the Mafia along with the altered autopsy reports, the evidence points to a coup de' dat by the CIA. They did it because they believed JFK was taking the United States on the wrong path towards dealing with communism. That is the reason why the cover-up has been sustained for so long. The perpetrators honestly believed they were doing the right thing for the United States at the time. The will of the people was discarded in favor of preserving the nation as they saw fit. Unfortunately, they didn't realize the long term effects of the assassination. One result was the increased power of capitalism over democracy. Profit has become more important than freedom. Corporations are more concerned with increasing the wealth of a select few than with promoting the general welfare of the very nation that allows them to conduct business. A second result has been the subordination of this nation's civil liberties to the private agendas of the powers that be. The only opinions that are accepted today are those that further the bottom line. Contrary opinions are discouraged and distorted by spin doctors. The only explanation for the lack of attention given to the significance of the assassination is because the government, the military and the media all know what happened and to expose the event for what it really was goes to the central core of what constitutes the United States of America.

    For Christmas i was visiting relatives who relocated to Texas. I had the opportunity to visit the spot where he was killed and the museum in the book depository. I am too young to have been alive at the time, so I had no preconceived notions of what exactly happened. I can tell you that after leaving that museum there was absolutely no doubt in my mind that Kennedy was killed by a conspiracy plot.

    Maybe.

    Maybe not.

    It will not come to full light until not only the people, but the programs instituted by those people are no longer around.

    Blaming the death/assasination as one of the reasons capitolism overcame democracy is a ludicrous statement. Capitolism has always been dominant since the industrial revolution, and it was only the mere fact that we never truly had a governmental system of absolute authority back then and enough people that were pissed off enough to form orginized labor unions that we were not dominated entirely by the textile, steel, and automotive (among other) industries.

    Not saying that a lot of that has also fallen prey to greed and basic human failings, but that is another subject.



    I think the one thing that this government is in danger of becoming is a government that is somehow thought to be the ruling body of the united states, not as an orginization that is intended to follow the will of the states themselves.

    National security, transportation, and other programs are all within the perview of the national administration, but so many others have been adopted in there that we are at risk of becoming a voluntarily (and I do not know the proper doctrine to call it) submissive political entity.




    Blaming our troubles on a JFK assasination is mindless blather that even if it were true, would do nothing more than throw one group of the power hungry out to be replaced from another. We will still be careening downhill, but we will have changed our direction only marginally.

    Oswald didn't act alone, you have to be pretty naive (which I don't think you are) to think otherwise. Your "maybe, maybe not" thing is precious in a sort of juvenile way, but take your head out of the sand even if it means you may have to agree with someone for once.

    Abl, I am reading his comment:

    Oswald didn't act alone, you have to be pretty naive (which I don't think you are) to think otherwise
    To either mean that Oswald could not have gotten a gun, shot twice (sorry, was it 3 times?) and done it all by himself. I have seen other documentaries that have shown that he could, if he knew what he was doing.

    OR that he meant that there definitely WAS a conspiracy and anyone thinking otherwise is a "juvenile" with "his head [in] the sand".

    All I am saying is that if it wasn't proven, it isn't fact. I am not willing to give up the simple explanation, even if it happens to be the one that best fit the parties that benefited from JFK's assassination, without proof.

    It also does not mean I think that all the conspiracy theories are bunk either.

    BTW, they are all HYPOTHESES since none of them have really been proven, and recreated...

    If you visit Dealy Plaza and see the very tight configuration of the place, as opposed the the "artist's renderings" we always get, you will see how preposterous the "single gunman theory" is.

    One really does need to visit to get a true sense of it- I was never so adamant about this until I visited in December for myself. I was overcome with certitude.

    What are the chances of getting Bush & Cheney in an open convertible in Dealy Plaza and putting a couple of armed psychotics on the roofs surrounding the area? Or does Lyndon Johnson need to be alive for something like this to succeed.

    That is truly shocking. Perhaps there was a good reason for it. See how the bumper riding agent shrugs (3 times) questioning why he is called to move away from JFK?
