Eisenhower’s worst fears came true.  

We invent enemies to buy the bombs

We face no serious threat, yet keep waging war.
While big defense exists, glory-hungry politicians will use it.

...


But then that's always been the basis of current US foreign policy which is dictated by the Military Industrial Complex led by the Pentagoon... That's why the Pentagoon always cites China as a threat whenever their budget come up for renewal...

And this is why in certain boardrooms in the west China will NEVER be regarded as an equal, much less a 'friend'. For these societal misfits Hate is profitable! And today China is the 'new invented' enemy. To reinforce and justify that is their constant propaganda against everything that China does, and which is so prevalent in their media.

One can imagine these bureaucrats, politicos and CEOs as the central characters in that old British satirical film, "Oh, What a lovely war!" I have no doubts that there are $ome who harbour thoughts of such a 'lovely war'...against China...

Hope I'm wrong...

Excuse him ...

The "one-eyed-man" can only see one half of the world.

The missing "half" he tries to fantasize.

You clown never miss the free buffet, right? Sorry, buddy, no -ism is needed to guiltify anyone.

Your observation is correct ...........

Our world of men is about making money .........

But don't you think that our governments (who mostly all deal in weapons), should not promote war ........

To the disadvantage of their people's, and rather just to benefit themselves and arms manufacturers ...........  ?

One only has to look at America and its armaments spending over the last 60 years, coupled with the disastrous wars they entered ........

Not only for them but the side they were fighting .............

Much of it was totally unnecessary ............

You miss the point, this is not about Libya or necessarily just resources  ..........

It is about 60 years of continuous war and the arms industry ..........


And during that 60 years, who was there spending with us on their arms industry?

Did the soviets create enemies to sell their weapons too?

We're not the only arms manufacturers in town you know.

I find the whole premise of this thread completely ridiculous, and worse, it masks what is really going on.

You want to criticize the 'west', meaning the US and Britain, than talk about the insanity of the cold war.

Talk about how extremely ridiculous it was for the Saudis to drag the US in the first Iraq war instead of handling the conflict themselves.

Talk about how under an arms embargo in yugoslavia, Clinton gave the green light on an arms shipment from Iran to the Bosnians.

And the best - why so many lies were made up to go into Iraq - what was really behind that?  

You seem to suffer from tunnel vision.

Iran invented the US as an enemy ............. !  ?

Have you tried being a professional comedian ...........  



I think you're trying to be a comedian with this thread.  lol

Makes no sense at all.  Think of it from a business perspective.  If you want to sell arms, you don't make enemies for yourself - you make them for others.  For any business to succeed, you don't make enemies of yourcustomers.  And you would have more customers buying if they felt threatened by others.  You're not going to buy weapons from someone you fear as your enemy.  

For every enemy we make, we are actually supporting the Russians arm industry as the enemies we create will not be buying from us, but from a rival.  Who sells weapons to Iran?  And Iran is supplying the Taliban with weapons.....everyone is a player of the game if they have the cash to be one.

And also from a business perspective - you can't make money if you're using up all the arms and not selling them.    You can't operate a grocery store and say you are successful because you've eaten up all the food and have to order more and more.  You can only make a profit if someone ELSE is buying the food.

These are business basics.  WTF is wrong with you people?
