Some people think it is not credible that 9/11 or the London bombings were an inside job because, as rotten as Bush and Blair are, they would never cross the line of killing their own people. Here is an interesting account of how Winston Churchill apparently crossed that line during World War One (not WWII which we tend to associate with the man.) The excerpt below is from a longer article about Churchill. This quoted passage concerning Churchill and the sinking of the Lusitania in 1915 (resulting in the deaths of 1201 people), especially the last sentence which sums it up nicely, reveals, I believe, just how little respect for "the line" elite politicians actually have.
If Churchill could cross the line in the context of World War One, a war which virtually nobody today claims was a just war, why wouldn’t Bush or Blair do so in pursuit of their phony "war on terror?" Are Bush and Blair better than Churchill?

The most recent student of the subject is Patrick Beesly, whose Room 40 is a history of British Naval Intelligence in World War I. Beesly’s careful account is all the more persuasive for going against the grain of his own sentiments. He points out that the British Admiralty was aware that German U-boat Command had informed U-boat captains at sea of the sailings of the Lusitania, and that the U-boat responsible for the sinking of two ships in recent days was present in the vicinity of Queenstown, off the southern coast of Ireland, in the path the Lusitania was scheduled to take. There is no surviving record of any specific warning to the Lusitania. No destroyer escort was sent to accompany the ship to port, nor were any of the readily available destroyers instructed to hunt for the submarine. In fact, "no effective
steps were taken to protect the Lusitania." Beesly concludes:
unless and until fresh information comes to light, I am reluctantly
driven to the conclusion that there was a conspiracy deliberately
to put the Lusitania at risk in the hope that even an abortive
attack on her would bring the United States into the war. Such a
conspiracy could not have been put into effect without Winston
Churchill’s express permission and approval.
In any case, what is certain is that Churchill’s policies made the sinking very likely. The Lusitania was a passenger liner loaded with munitions of war; Churchill had given orders to the captains of merchant ships, including liners, to ram German submarines if they encountered them, and the Germans were aware of this. And, as Churchill stressed in his memoirs of World War I, embroiling neutral countries in hostilities with the enemy was a crucial part of warfare: "There are many kinds of maneuvres in war, some only of which take place on the battlefield. . . . The maneuvre which brings an ally into the field is as serviceable as that which wins a great battle."
