The Kurdish people comprise the world's largest ethnic group without a home state. There were more than 16 million Kurds alive in 2000, and about half of them lived in Turkey. Turkey is another artificial entity that imposed a national identity on a land of tribes, as the Ottoman Empire's remnant after the Great Powers . At World War I’s conclusion, the Kurdish people vied to establish a nation for themselves as the Ottoman Empire ended. even remarked that the three ethnic groups that should have their own nation as the Ottoman Empire was carved up were Armenians, Kurds, and Arabs. Unfortunately for Kurds, Kurdistan was sitting on large oil deposits, and the UK's power politics (other colonial powers were also involved, including France and America) divided Kurdistan between the new artificial nations Turkey and Iraq (Kurdistan also was carved up into portions of Iran, Syria, and the Soviet Union). Kurds are neither Turks nor Arabs and have their own distinct identity, linguistically and culturally.
“Where now are our grandfathers, the Delawares? We had hoped that the white men would not be willing to travel beyond the mountains. Now that hope is gone. They have passed the mountains, and have settled upon Cherokee land. They wished to have that usurpation sanctioned by treaty. When that land is gained, the same encroaching spirit will lead them upon other land of the Cherokees. New cessions will be asked. Finally the whole country, which the Cherokees and their fathers have so long occupied, will be demanded, and the remnant of Ani-Yunwiya, “The Real People,” once so great and formidable, will be compelled to seek refuge in some distant wilderness. There they will be permitted to stay only a short while, until they again behold the advancing banners of the same greedy host. Not being able to point out any further retreat for the miserable Cherokees, the extinction of the whole race will be proclaimed. Should we not therefore run all risks, and incur all consequences, rather than submit to further laceration of our country? Such treaties may be all right for men who are too old to hunt or fight. As for me, I have my young warriors about me. We will have our lands.”

A great irony of that human experiment speculation was a contemporaneous story that was a far more responsible speculation. A February 2, 1999 e-mail from the International Action Center stated that hoof and mouth disease broke out in Iraq when the December bombing happened. The disease threatened the nation's entire livestock population. It crippled over a million animals by that time. For a nation already starving, it was a terrible blow. The International Action Center openly wondered if the CIA intentionally introduced it into Iraq. If so, it would be no surprise. The CIA probably performed acts of biological warfare against Cuba, including introducing Newcastle disease to Cuba's turkey population, swine fever to its pigs, Dengue Fever to human Cubans, and even inducing killer storms through weather control.

The kind of “free market” censorship that and were subjected to demonstrated new dynamics in the arena of power, control, and wealth accumulation. If two of the West’s most famous authors could have their critical political observations about the West censored so completely, most people would not even know about them, much less read them, keeping the at bay once again. It happened even more completely with . With the revolutions in Europe, probably beginning with England’s civil wars, Western states had limited ability to use violence on dissenting citizens, and so the cultural managers had to control what people . Therefore, British and American cultural managers have long been the world’s most sophisticated practitioners of mind control, and its effects are easily seen in , British royalty worship, and other cultural phenomena. Such behaviors are religious acts, but the participants seem to pretend that they are not.

“There are two kinds of patriotism -- monarchical patriotism and republican patriotism. In the one case the government and the king may rightfully furnish you their notions of patriotism; in the other, neither the government nor the entire nation is privileged to dictate to any individual what the form of his patriotism shall be. The gospel of the monarchical patriotism is: "The King can do no wrong." We have adopted it with all its servility, with an unimportant change in the wording: "Our country, right wrong!" We have thrown away the most valuable asset we had:-- the individual's right to oppose both flag and country when he (just by himself) believed them to be in the wrong. We have thrown it away; and with it all that was really respectable about that grotesque and laughable word, Patriotism.”
