    We all read about how these wars started and about all the battles, but how were they financed and by who?

    Bonds purchased by the American People. There were numerous "war bond" drives in World War I and World War II.

    Thanks Jeff, Guess I asked the wrong question. I never give it any thought to how wars were financed and I really don't know. I ran across this article on the web and it made me curious.

    This article looks at history in a different way than I am used to looking at it.

    It has been ages since I had even hear the term Helgian psychology.

    Some of this guys constructs work and some don't, at least that is my impression from a quick read of the article. The trinitarian/unitarian argument in particular is questionable. Another problem with the argument maybe with the author's choice of terms, which I found poorly defined. Perhaps they were understood by his original audience, but, doesn't do much for a reader. A good deal of communication is lost by words on a page. Some have argued that as much of 90% of communicated information is non-verbal. I think I am missing part of his point by not having that non-verbal information.

    Jeff.

    I've read better articles (studies) than this one I thought this had the least amount of words, who wants to read 200 pages of material on a discussion board?

    Where could I find more information on this type of financial activity? Where would one start to search?

    Thanks Jeff.

    I really don't know if/where there is anything useful on the web about this topic. I had it in a college class on political theory 30+ years ago. I thought it was a bit whacky then, still do.

    I'm not trying to prove or disprove the theory, I just wondered if there was anyway to find out which bankers were involved and if they did have a hand in suppoting both sides.

    I've read how the Harrimans supported the Nazi's before and through the war (after?) without the US government closing them down so I thought maybe there is information on other bankers out there doing the same.

    Thanks for the help.

    I think the Austrian school of economists have some great info on how wars are financed. Rothbard's books on the history and growth of the central bank/federal reserve touch on the topic.

    The old conspiracy theory. Been going around for at least 50 years. That was the point of Robt Welch and the John Birch Society since the 60's.

    "Brethren, to the elites, we're 'human cattle' participating is a double blind laboratory experiment. By God's Grace, the elect can't be deceived on the revealed Word of God, which, as a sharp two-edged sword, divides asunder these deceptions."

    And according to any rational analysis of Dispensational OR Reformed theology, God is running the experiment.

    To answer the origional question, the wars are paid for by deficit spending. Each side dedicates every possible asset to winning.

    Hitler's error was that he was more interested in killing Jews than in winning the war. Also that he was crazy.

    Hey, it all came together. The war was financed by aliens and their sneaky human allies.

    Well, of course, what happened was that the Bilderbergers and the Rothschilds, together with the Rockefellers and Krupps, were beamed aboard an alien vessel, and there introduced to the technology which we see manifested as "black helicopters, tupperware, and anti-perspirant."

    These people are organized. They have an exclusive golf and Chmmgk club at Area 51. (Chmmgk, pronouced like the sound you make right before you throw up, is the alien's favorite game--it is a copy of golf, soccer, hockey, and Blzzzp).

    Currently, they communicate with their mind slaves through Vanna White, NFL Football, and Oprah. The men in black work for them as well.

    It is all very plain, and can be found if you decode the writings of Ludwig Von Mises using the Septuagint as the key.

    Or somethin' like that.....

    Oh, and Poncho, the site you mentioned celebrates the works of William Branham, who was an arch-heretic, anti-trinitarian, and father of the word-faith movement. Bad stuff.

    I see you have all your facts in order Major B, I applaud you for your obvious obsession with details, and commend you for spending all the time it must have taken you to 'git it all together', but you left out the part where Neil Sedaka is the anti-anti christ, and Dolly Parton is the false prophet.

    Thats alright though don't feel bad about it nobodies perfect. ;)

    The rise of a global elite has been well documented. The international banks control world finances. There`s not enough money in print to back up listed bank account balances, and there`s not enough gold and silver to back up money in print. Finances are numbers on computer screens. It`s not about profit. The international banks already control the world`s economy.

    God controls the world's economy. There have always been global elites, the Bible refers to them as "principalities and powers," and they don't wear human skin, except as a disguise. Any human institution is at several disadvantages in attempting to control anything.

    1. If it conflicts with Providence, it ain't happnin'!

    2. The (human) Global elite would be better termed elites. They are not unified, they are often in competition. (Is there like a club, and do you have to do some gross things to get through the initiation?). Is this some mystery, that rich people try to control things? This went on in Babel and UR, for pity's sake! Yet, even unified, they can't avert a hurricane or stop an earthquake.

    There is a fellow around here who is always predicting some disaster (see: Y2K hysteria), and at the end of the story he is trying to sell you a case of ammo or a container of MREs.

    Beam me up to the mother ship in a black helicopter owned by the Rothschilds, piloted by a member of Skull and Bones, and operated from the Augusta National Golf Club!
