Think of the budget the US Government has to create reality similar to this. Think also about the way Americans have been stampeded by the sinking of the Maine in Havana harbor, the sinking of the Lusatania, the Tonkin Gulf alleged torpedo firing which never happened but resulted in the Vietnam War, the Weapons of Mass Destruction that launched the war on Iraq but were not there, and 9/11, the most famous building demolition in history done by someone other than Al Qaeda which did not exist until 9/11.
In fact, the Boston Tea Party in 1773 was done by Freemason Americans dressed as Indians in order to foment the War of Independence. The USA has a long history of manufactured crises designed to stampede the gullible masses.
Could something like the following be arranged for us by the overlords above?
