This is the True Conspiracy Theory – Currently, more and more theories are being used to understand whether it is true or not. When we hear the phrase “conspiracy theory”, what comes to our mind is a series of facts mixed with myths that seem exaggerated. But, oddly enough, the more these theories are discussed, the more fun it is!
Even though most conspiracy theories are proven wrong, at least there is some spice to the conversation, lah! However, it turns out that there are also conspiracy theories that have been proven true in the end. Whether through the confession of related parties or exposed by the times, the following conspiracy theories have been proven true!
1. The FBI is spying on Beatles vocalist John Lennon!
The 60-70s were turbulent times for the United States. Not only the Cold War (1947-1991) with the Soviet Union, various cultural movements emerged. Led by artists and musicians, the US government saw the emergence of this movement as a signal of danger!
In 2000, in his book Gimme Some Truth, historian Jon Wiener exposed the truth that the US government does spy on its citizens! Most notably, the US government watched musicians and artists on stage and called for a radical anti-war message.
One of the frontman is the vocalist of The Beatles, John Lennon. When he released the song Imagine in 1971, the whole world was blown away by his message calling for a world without division (and without religion). However, to the 37th President of the US, Richard Nixon, the song Imagine sounded like a threat.
Therefore, many people at the time theorized that President Nixon kept a close eye on Lennon. At that time, Lennon was indeed friends with radical anti-war activists, and frankly, the US government did want to expel Lennon! This theory came to a head when Lennon was assassinated in 1980.
2. The SUNSHINE Project sacrifices children’s bodies for nuclear radiation tests
The world changed rapidly when the United States dropped two atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, ending World War II (WW2). The atomic bomb became one part of military operations around the world. Of course, at that time, the impact of the atomic bomb was still not understood, especially the radiation effect.
Therefore, in 1953, the US government carried out Project SUNSHINE to examine the impact of nuclear on humans. Need human subjects to carry out this research. So, a conspiracy theory emerged that the government stole the bodies of children and babies as “guinea pigs”.
When this research went public in 1956, it turned out that the inhuman conspiracy theory was proven true! The SUNSHINE project used 500 parts from more than 1,500 corpses of infants and children taken from Australia to Europe. The problem is, the 1,500 bodies were exhumed without the permission of the family!
3. The United States’ slander against Cuba!
The Bay of Pigs incident was a political and strategic US failure to prevent Fidel Castro’s rise to power. However, it did not end there, various conspiracy theories circulated about the US government, the Bay of Pigs, and Cuba.
One theory claims that it was the US military that carried out various operations to malign Cuba. This proved to be true with Operation Northwoods. Drafted by the US Department of Defense (DoD) and the US Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), the Operation Northwoods proposal was rejected by the 35th US President, John F. Kennedy.
Shamefully, Operation Northwoods was a US military intervention operation to bring down Cuba! Operation Northwoods even wants to spread the “terror of Cuban communism” to the US by carrying out the same terror operation in several US cities, sinking ships full of Cubans, and blaming it on the Cuban government!
