'Dynasty of Death' (Part 1)
Schuyler Ebbets

There is no historic parallel that can be drawn, nothing compares with the 
accomplishments of the Bush family. No dictator or tyrant can equal the 
suffering and destruction they have wrought on humanity, as they are not mere 
tyrants themselves, but the makers and breakers of tyrants, the organizers and 
profiteers of war and death. They are not alone and solely responsible for 
creating the present day military industrial complex, however since 1915 the 
Bush family has been directly involved in World War One and Two, the Korean War,
the Vietnam War, numerous CIA secret wars, the Gulf War, and now a ³Never Ending
War². The past four generations of this one family have had a hand in promoting 
and profiting from most of major wars that America has waged since the beginning
of the industrialized age.


The nightmare for the world began in 1915, with the establishment of an unholy 
partnership between the U.S. Government and the ŒWar Industries Board', 
for-runner of America's present day 'military-industrial complex'. Some of those
seated on the board of directors were Samuel P. Bush, great grandfather of 
George W. bush, and so-called chief of Ordnance for the Small Arms and 
Ammunition Section, Wall Street banker Clarence Dillon, Samuel Pryor, executive 
committee chairman of Remington Arms, and Bernard Baruch, who, as head of the 
War Industries Board profited in excess of $200,000,000.

The members of the Board aptly came to be known as the "Merchants of Death." 
Using the facade of government to legitimize their operations, the War 
Industries Board represented the big munitions makers of the day who dispatched 
agents around the globe to sell the weapons and materials of war to both sides 
of any conflict. They bribed government officials and used their corporate 
influence and capitol to increase international tensions, which in turn 
generated demand and maximized profit.

It was during the First World War that Samuel P. Bush and the other board 
members amassed fortunes selling the weapons and materials of war not only to 
America but also to Germany. Most of the records and correspondence pertaining 
to Samuel P. Bush's activities on the War Industries Board were later burned 
mysteriously, "to save space" in the National Archives. When their business 
venture officially ended on November 11, 1918, some 37,508,686 human beings had 
been killed. It set a dangerous precedent for the destiny of America and the 
destiny of civilization itself. A small group of corporate manufactures, 
bankers, and industrialists had formulated a devilishly effective method by 
which profit is extracted from human suffering, war, and death, and their dark 
technique would be repeated and refined.

In 1922 while George Walker, was president at W. A. Harriman & Co, Averell 
Harriman went to Berlin to set up a branch bank for the company. While in Berlin
Averell Harriman met with Fritz Thyssen, prime sponsor of the German politician 
Adolph Hitler. It was at that time that preliminary arrangements were made to 
establish a bank for Thyssen in New York. Two years later, in 1924, W. A. 
Harriman & Co. formally began the Union Banking Corporation in Manhattan, 
chiefly to handle German funds supplied through the Thyssen-owned Nazi front 
Bank voor Handel en Scheepvaart (BHS), in the Netherlands, for the mass purchase
of American commodities. The W. A. Harriman & Co executives labeled these 
dealing as the "Hitler Project".

On May 1st 1926 Prescott Bush, grandfather of George W. Bush, close friend of 
Bunny Harriman and fellow Bonesmen from their Yale class of 1917 joined W. A. 
Harriman & Co. as its vice president under the bank's president and his 
father-in-law George Walker. In that same year an associate of Prescott Bush's 
father, Samuel P. Bush, and ³Merchants of Death² board member Clarence Dillon, 
acquired $70 million dollars from Fritz Thyssen to set up a massive organization
named the Vereinigte Stahlwerke (United Steel Works Corporation, or the German 
Steel Trust). This would become Germany's largest industrial corporation.

Although Thyssen's accounts were run through the Walker-Bush organization and 
the German Steel Trust did its corporate banking separately through Dillon Read 
Company, U.S. government investigations revealed that Bush's Nazi-front bank had
actually worked directly with Fritz Thyssen¹s United Steel Works Corporation 
which had produced; 50.8% of Nazi Germany's pig iron, 41.4% of Nazi Germany's 
universal plate, 36.0% of Nazi Germany's heavy plate, 38.5% of Nazi Germany's 
galvanized sheet metal, 45.5% of Nazi Germany's pipes and tubes, 22.1% of Nazi 
Germany's wire, and 35.0% of Nazi Germany's explosives.

On Oct. 20, 1942, the U.S. government ordered the seizure of all banking 
operations being carried out by Prescott Bush for the Nazis, Under the Trading 
with the Enemy Act, however by that time he and the other associates at W.A. 
Harriman & Co. had already made their fortunes financing and arming Adolph 
Hitler. Under the Trading with the Enemy Act, the government was able to take 
over Union Banking Corporation, and The U.S. Alien Property Custodian, seized 
the Union Banking Corporation stock owned by Prescott Bush, E. Roland Harriman, 
and his associates until the war ended. Prescott Bush eventually sold his 
holding in Union Banking Corporation for $1,500,000.

Although the ³Hitler Project² had resulted in a second world war and 62,537,400 
human beings had been killed, Harriman and Bush and the other Bonesmen in Union 
Banking Corporation were never prosecuted for helping Adolph Hitler, and their 
identities were never publicized by the media. During his vice presidency with 
Union Banking, Prescott Bush had shrewdly hired lawyers, Allen and John Foster 
Dulles, international attorneys for many Nazi enterprises, to represent him and 
Fritz Thyssen. Sons of wealthy influential families, the Dulles brothers had 
also worked with the War Industries Board beginning their lucrative careers 
along side Samuel P. Bush and the other, ŒMerchants of Death¹.

In 1950, President Truman charged International attorney John Foster Dulles with
the task of concluding a peace treaty with Japan. Before the treaty was signed 
on September 8, 1951, Dulles used his position to lay the seeds for yet another 
profitable war by advising South Korean president Rhee that, ³if he was ready to
attack the communist North, the U.S. would lend help.² South Korea immediately 
launched a series vicious cross boarder attacks to provoke the North into war. 
For the benefit of North Korea, ''U.S. Secretary of State Dean Acheson (close 
friend of Harriman) publicly stated that South Korea would not be defended if 
attacked. This was seen by North Korea as an America approval for whatever 
actions they decided to take to defend themselves. On June 25, 1950, eight 
divisions and one armored brigade, (90,000 soldiers) of the North Korean 
People's Army attacked in three columns across the 38th parallel invading the 
Republic of Korea. Not surprisingly, Acheson had lied and on June 27, President 
Truman ordered U.S. forces into Korea.

Harriman couldn't resist the lure and the profit of the death game. In September
of 1951, using his considerable political influence, Harriman had himself 
appointed to serve as President Truman's Mutual Security Agency director, which 
also made him the U.S. chief of the Anglo-American military alliance and an 
adviser, to ³oversee national security affairs². His business partner, Robert 
Lovett, became Assistant Secretary of Defense. It seemed as though things were 
developing into yet another profitable war coupled with the spoils of victory. 
The American military had easily conquered Seoul and the North Korean capital 

On Oct. 26 the Chinese army under the command of Mao Tse Tung, put an abrupt end
to the scheme. Entering the war with 300,000 men, China beat the U.S. back to 
the 39th parallel. By the time of the Armistice negotiations of 1953, North and 
South Korea, and China combined had suffered a total of 3,822,000 casualties 
mostly from U. S. aerial bombing, but America had lost 54,000 service men and 
women and was dealt a crushing defeat. General Omar Bradley described the entire
debacle as "The wrong war, at the wrong place, at the wrong time and with the 
wrong enemy." But it was never the wrong war for the merchants of death and the 
Bonesmen, as war made big money.

Financing his campaign with Union Banking blood money Prescott Bush became 
elected as Republican Senator from Connecticut In1952. In 1953 President Dwight 
Eisenhower appointed John Foster Dulles as his secretary of state and Allen 
Dulles, became director of the CIA. It would be the beginning of a glorious era 
of war and profit. Alan Dulles immediately pursued a policy of aggression and 
strength toward the Soviet Union and China, officially initiating the ŒCold 
War¹, and the largest military industrial buildup in American history.

Prescott Bush knew there would never be a better time to bring his son, George 
Herbert Walker Bush, father of George W. bush, into the fold of a new and 
emerging military industrial power structure. After Young George had followed in
his father¹s footsteps through Yale and into the Skull and Bones society, Allen 
Dulles welcomed him into the CIA, and John Foster Dulles acted as his friend and
mentor among the right wing power elite.

President Dwight D. Eisenhower was under no allusion about the ominous changes 
being brought about by men like Prescott Bush, Averell Harriman, the Dulles 
brothers and many others. During his Farewell Address to the Nation January 17, 
1961, Eisenhower tried to warn the American people saying: "We have been 
compelled to create a permanent armaments industry of vast proportionsŠwe must 
not fail to comprehend its grave implications. In the councils of government, we
must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or 
unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous 
rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of
this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take 
nothing for granted².

On January 20, 1961, John F. Kennedy officially took office as President of the 
United States. During his brilliant state of the union address Kennedy said, 
"The world is very different now. For man holds in his mortal hands the power to
abolish all forms of human poverty and all forms of human life.² And Kennedy 
clarified his position by stating his, ³unwillingness to witness or permit the 
slow undoing of those human rights to which this Nation has always been 

Before Eisenhower left office he allowed the appropriation of $46,000,000 
dollars to pay for a CIA scheme to invade Cuba at the Bay of Pigs. When Kennedy 
was told about the plan he voiced serious doubts, but he didn¹t want to be seen 
as soft on communism and his advisers convinced him that Castro was an unpopular
leader with the Cuban people. Dulles and others in the CIA theorized-fantasized 
that the Cuban citizens would hear of the attack and help the CIA trained Cuban 
exiles to overthrow Castro. Kennedy decided the plan's requirement of 16 U.S. 
Navy planes was too obvious and would reveal American military involvement. He 
cut the number down to six. As the date of the invasion neared, Kennedy had 
second thoughts and decided against the plan altogether. At a press conference 
on April 12, five days before the invasion President Kennedy was asked if the 
U.S. government was making preparations to stage an uprising in Cuba. The 
President answered; "First, I want to say that there will not be, under any 
conditions, an intervention in Cuba by the United States Armed Forces. This 
government will do everything it possibly can, I think it can meet its 
responsibilities, to make sure that there are no Americans involved in any 
actions inside CubaŠ The basic issue in Cuba is not one between the United 
States and Cuba. It is between the Cubans themselves.²

Allen Dulles, ignored the warning contained within Kennedy¹s announcement and on
April 12, 1961 proceeded with attack preparations, giving the order to CIA 
official Fletcher Prouty to make the delivery of three ships to then CIA agent 
George Bush for use in the invasion. Bush christened the ships the Barbara, the 
Houston, and the Zapata - after his oil company that later flopped. Bush had 
spent 1960 and '61 recruiting right-wing Cuban exiles in Miami for the invasion.
He was living in Texas with his wife Barbara and flying from Houston to Miami 
weekly. It was during this time that Bush met Felix Rodriguez, the CIA operative
who had hunted down and murdered Che Guevara. Bush and Rodriguez spent nearly 
two years working closely with the right wing Cuban community building their 
hopes and trust, and training them as marksman for the invasion.

On April 14, 1961 a total of five merchant ships carrying a paramilitary force 
of 1,400 Cuban exiles arrived at the Bay of Pigs, Cuba. The landing and 
subsequent battle went badly from the start. Two of the ships were sunk 
including the ship carrying most of the equipment and supplies. Two of the 
planes that were attempting to provide air cover were shot down. The CIA 
requested that Kennedy immediately call in more planes and military 
reinforcements, but Kennedy would not allow America to be manipulated into a 
conflict with Cuba and a potential war with Russia. Within seventy-two hours the
ŒBay of Pigs¹ invasion had ended in tragic defeat. Instead of fueling the 
conflict into a raging inferno, which threatened to engulf the world, Kennedy 
had allowed the flames of war to flicker and die. The CIA and others in the 
extremist Œright¹ were bitterly angry with Kennedy for his refusal to provide 
air cover. The CIA had lost 15 men; another 1100 of their faithful Cuban exiles 
were captured. All those whom young George H. Bush had inspired to arms with his
words, all those who had believed in him, trusted him, and befriended him were 
gone - imprisoned or killed. From that day forward, there was a bitter hatred 
for the imagined betrayal by Kennedy.
