Only three appointed high government officials have run sixty years of war on small vulnerable nations, that were previously plundered under military occupation by colonial powers for centuries?
In every single case of US mayhem (that if totaled up reaches many multi-holocaust proportions), civil war, fomented by the US itself, has been used as a pretext for unlawful barbaric criminal intervention by US Armed Forces, most often prepared by a corporate business dutiful CIA using its far flung network of banks, media, double agents and cooperating NGOs.
Civil wars! Capitalist empires of Europe had been stimulating them under the axiom "Divide and Conquer' since the first Portuguese armed merchant ships set sail, funded by enterprising investors in the fifteenth century.
From the earliest days of investor managed crimes of savage European forces (and later those of the US) falling upon ancient civilizations and cultures, there have been many famous devilishly clever lead investors cleverly creating wars of assured investment profitability. The most infamous in modern history were David's grandfather John Rockefeller and J. P. Morgan.
Morgan and John D. Rockefeller made the mega profitable continuance of WW I possible through the concentrated financial might and lending power of their secretly planned and created giant Federal Reserve (neither Federal nor Reserve, but a private bank of gangster investors).
The super colossal fortunes made before, during and after WW II were prepared by John Rockefeller, often then referred to as the "richest man in the world,' leading, along with Hitler's benefactor, Henry Ford and Ire'ne'e DuPont, America's banks, corporations, and big business men like Joe Kennedy and Prescott Bush, the crucial investing in a prostrate Germany of low wage labor and collaborating in building Hitler's Nazi armed forces up to world number one. (After the war, John Rockefeller's Standard Oil Company was indicted and tried for "Trading with the Enemy" through it's Latin American branches.)
Young David Rockefeller began his nefarious career in 1945 as a director on the board of the privately organized (by colluding investors) Council of Foreign Relations. Its members, all corporate backed with academic appearing credentials, are regularly presented on our cartelized media talk shows as experts on the world and US foreign policy, which of course they as an inner mafia have a critical hand in manipulating.
Beginning in 1939, the Council achieved great prominence within the government and the State Department, when it established the strictly confidential War and Peace Studies. The secrecy surrounding this group was such that the Council members who were not involved in its deliberations were completely unaware of the study group's existence. It was divided into four functional topic groups: economic and financial, security and armaments, territorial, and political. The security and armaments group was headed by Allen Dulles who later became a pivotal figure in the CIA's predecessor, the OSS, producing 682 memorandums for the State Department, marked classified and circulated among the appropriate government departments.

Readers won't regret a look at CFR's own (frightening?) web site: "About CFR", which features huge photos of its three most public faces above CFR's description:
"The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is an independent, nonpartisan membership organization, think tank, and publisher, an indispensable resource in a complex world.
Current membership of more than 4,500 living in New York, Washington, DC, across the country and abroad. Its Corporate Program serves an international membership of about two hundred leading global corporations.
The Washington Program actively engages decision-makers in Congress, the executive branch, and the diplomatic community. The bimonthly Foreign Affairs is widely considered to be the most influential magazine for the analysis and debate of foreign policy and economics. Independent Task Forces work to reach consensus on how to deal with critical foreign policy challenges." [About CFR ]
In 1945-46, Rockefeller also was in on the founding of the CIA for knowing well Allen Dulles and his brother John Foster Dulles -- an in-law of the family. It was in Rockefeller Center that Allen Dulles had set up his operational center liaising closely with MI6 which also had their principal U.S. operation there. [ Wikipedia ]
