The United States and it’s allies were successful in winning the second World War by organizing a huge industrial-military complex that, along with our brave men and women of the Nation were able to eventually defeat the War Machine of Nazi Germany and the Japanese Empire.

These were principles that he believed in and was striving to fulfill within his own life; then he was gone.

The eyes in the shadow view world events as money making opportunities to profit from and to manipulate to increase their profits and long range goals. They have absolutely no regard for anyone or anything.
