Obi-Wan Kenobi....Wacko Conspiracy Theorist?

In 2007, I started a thread at's message board entitled "Obi-Wan Kenobi, Whacko Conspiracy Theorist?" The title was obviously a little playful, but the content was a very serious discussion about how the Star Wars prequel trilogy was willfully and explicitly modeled after history's false flag terrorism and wars.

Some of the discussion got a little bit heated (there were the usual people who like to say that governments never lie - their families, neighbors, friends, and work colleagues do....but governments are great), and so the idea stuck with me because this fictional story was obviously a good vehicle for letting people know what false flag terrorism and war is.

So, with the new Clone Wars cartoon clearly trying to redefine the wars as WW2 (and, in so doing, dismantling and whitewashing the content of the actual Star Wars movies), I just wanted to go back and coherently explain what the clone wars were supposed to be. Because morality tales aren't supposed to be re-engineered to make governments look good.
