Wars provoked by Deep State

At least three major wars were provoked by the Deep State:

Korean War

On January 12, 1950, President Harry Truman's Deep State Secretary of State Dean Acheson gave his carefully written "defensive perimeter" speech at the National Press Club, which communists interpreted as allowing communist North Korea to invade South Korea. Acheson's speech notably excluded South Korea (the Republic of Korea) and Taiwan (the Republic of China) from the defensive perimeter that extended from Japan’s Ryukyu Islands to the Philippines. As explained by the World Tribune:

According to Soviet eyewitness accounts made available after the Soviet Union’s collapse in the early 1990s, Acheson’s speech was rushed to Stalin’s desk for a careful study. Stalin then immediately held secret deliberations with Mao, who had been in the USSR since late December 1949, about the seemingly changed military assessment concerning Korea. [North Korea dictator Kim Il-Sung] had been begging Stalin to approve his plan to attack South Korea, only to be repeatedly rejected by him on account of an assumed American military response. But only two weeks after Acheson’s speech, as the post-Soviet Union archival releases have indicated, on January 30, 1950, Stalin finally issued a general approval for Kim Il-Sung to launch the attack on the South.[1]

Gulf War

On July 25, 1990, the Deep State U.S. ambassador to Iraq, April Glaspie, declared during discussions with Iraqi officials and amid a massive troop buildup by it on the Kuwait border that the U.S. is "inspired by the friendship and not by confrontation, does not have an opinion" on the conflict between Iraq and Kuwait. "We [the U.S.] have no opinion on the Arab–Arab conflicts," she reportedly declared to Saddam Hussein. She reportedly also told him that the U.S. did not intend "to start an economic war against Iraq."

Saddam Hussein apparently construed these comments as a green light for him to invade Kuwait, which he did soon thereafter. The Deep State never timely corrected her reported comments.
