You said Apocalypse Now was like A Gita about war
CHRIS: This is a Vedic process of Enlightenment going through various different stages of experience. It's like a grand tour of all the different components that would make up an Enlightened State of Mind, you have to progress from one lesson/ experience to the next. In the Bhagavad-Gita there is series of discourses between Arjuna and Lord Krishna. He is discussing and asking questions about the whole process of Life. It is a series of talks in which Krishna reveals sacred philosophical Knowledge to him. It is a series of lessons that come together like a jigsaw puzzle and finally you come out with this grand view of what it all means but you wouldn't be able to see it without going through this learning process.
BRENT: And you Think Apocalypse Now is like that?
CHRIS: The way it's laid out it starts with this soldier being recruited on a mission and then he moves on through various situations going up the river through these the different stages arriving at a culminating situation which portrays the meaningful end result of this whole process of war - going deeper and deeper into the insanity of the whole thing. You have the Generals sitting around eating roast beef selecting him for this mission, then he engages with the Regular Army and then Special forces, through a USO ( United Service Organization who perform shows for the soldiers) event for the troops starring Playboy Bunnies, then moving further up the river where this Playboy Bunny Helicopter had crashed after departing the event site where there is just a bunch of mud and rain and stranded soldiers holding a position without a purpose or a clue and then through the bridge crossing into Cambodia.
BRENT: They keep blowing up the bridge and rebuilding it getting nowhere.
CHRIS: As we arrive into Cambodia. We aren't technically fighting in Cambodia but there is this journey all the way up the river to the culminating point of the whole insanity of war and he completed his mission, he assassinated this rogue officer and came back. This officer wanted to die but he didn't want to die without his story being told. So his assassin became his last messenger. That is a Gita. The whole process is like a learning curve it encompasses the whole circumference of experiences. The good and the evil is encompassed and explained.
BRENT: You said something about North Korea...
CHRIS: Vietnam and Korea were the staging points for the WW II invasion of Japan and when they surrendered actually before the Use of the Atomic Bomb they had to figure out what to do with all this stuff. They couldn't bring it back to the states and couldn't allow it to fall into the hands of the locals. It was actually a betrayal Because Ho Chi Min was working with the Allies against the Japanese and he was later betrayed by them.
CHRIS: The French occupied Vietnam and after WW2 the big democratizing story was everyone was going to go democratic. We were going to have a government of the people and it was all propaganda, there was no Intention to realize this on a genuine geopolitical political level, it was just a cover. In Vietnam they wanted to democratize themselves and break free of the French colonial rule. They wanted to liberate Vietnam from them. The French were fighting them and they were losing. Ho Chi Min was the leader.
BRENT: He was the leader of what?
CHRIS: He was the number one Vietnamese military guy and original Vietnamese operative against the Japanese. He worked with the U.S.. When the war was over he became a key figure in Vietnamese politics and he wanted to liberate his country by getting the French Colonials out.
BRENT: Did they get them out?
CHRIS: They were winning against the French and both sides were asking for support for their positions. Ho Chi Min was asking for support for his cause to establish a sovereign democratic Vietnam independent of the pre-existing French colonial rule. There were seven political parties established emulating the French political system I presume. Ho Chi Min was in charge of freeing Vietnam from the vestiges of French Colonial rule. He was not a communist (as later portrayed) as there were seven parties and only two were socialist but they didn't have any dominance. Ho Chi Min petitioned his contacts in the U.S. for assistance appealing his cause in the tradition of the U.S. Declaration of Independence of 1776 for setting up a similar Union in Vietnam but the U.S. not only turned him down - they attacked him by siding with the French. Realistically the U.S. needed to support the French in this situation because they were Trilateralist Allies. French interests were American interests. A philosophical or political ideal in Vietnam had no bearing on this Trilateralist relationship. It was then that Ho Chi Min turned to China and Russia for assistance with their military campaign now not only against the French but against the American occupation of South Vietnam (a similar situation for Saddam after the Iran Iraq War had ended). We sided to undermine all the anti French pro Ho Chi Min democratic processes developing in that region by setting up puppet regimes that supported the exploitative Black Market operations especially the Heroin and other Drug Trade activities which were cash cows for International Financiers and Major Trilateralist Banks that were vested in this area and profiting from the drug trade and cheap labor etc. And that's what we've been doing all over the Post War World. The last thing in the World they want is Sovereign Democratic States. They intended to set up a One World Government controlled from London, Tel Aviv, New York, and Washington.
BRENT: How did China help?
CHRIS: They supplied North Vietnam with weapons and material both China and Russia were in a war of attrition against America's occupying interests in these areas and both of them were communist states so the U.S. war propaganda became a war against the spread of Communism in this region where we became the imperial liberators. We went in there from village to village. We trained Vietnamese to go in and take over a village and then we would go in and retake the same village with the same troops wearing different cloths and colors. It was a brainwashing campaign to convince the Vietnamese peasants that there was actually a war going on. That's how the Americans got involved on top of the French. We had two teams, the communist team and the liberators. The Red Team and the Blue Team running this Psyops campaign.
BRENT: What does Psyops mean?
CHRIS: A psychological operation is a special operation that goes in and plays both sides. Uses various means of psychological warfare.
BRENT: Playing both sides?
CHRIS: Yes, with the same people and after they would have a couple of drinks together and go on to the next village. There was no revolution going on it was all staged against Ho Chi Min and the same thing happened in Korea. We lost more American soldiers in Korea but nobody talks about it because we didn't win that war.
BRENT: So China was helping them?
CHRIS: Vietnam turned to them. And the material from the WWII depots could not be allowed to fall into their hands.
BRENT: What happened with it?
CHRIS: I supposed we used it up in the Korean and Vietnam Wars. What else would you do with it? That is one of the reasons for a war. It's war material already bought and paid for. It needs to be consumed in some way. Creating a war to use it up is one way to solve this problem!
