The main claim of the speaker Michael Rivero, was that contrary to popular belief all major wars have been war for the profit of the private central banks. He goes on to say that “ behind all the propaganda, behind all the flag waving, lone-nut assassins, weapons of mass destruction of all the modern wars, this nation has fought our wars by and for the private central bankers” (YouTube, “All Wars are Bankers wars”) , and that “war is the bankers richest harvest”( YouTube, “ All Wars are Bankers Wars”).
Rivero firsts start at the American Revolution to support his claim. He goes on to say that the American war was fought due to the currency act of king George the Third, which forced colonists to stop using their own government currencies, and

This website paints a more aggressive picture of Hitler and Germany as a resentful nation with a power hungry ruler, whose invasion of Poland in 1939 forced Britain and France to declare war. Hitler also began to violate terms in the Treaty of Versailles, which wasn’t discussed in Rivero’s argument. In a quick search a focus point of Riveros’s argument was easily refuted because his opponent had multiple pieces of evidence, not just once select event, to support their argument.
