Everything for businesses
Pity they did not cancel the war because it was bad for business.
as someone pointed out, war is good business... it shows the corruption of human values that its not the lives or memories that are more important, it is 'business' that is more important.
I have always cringed to hear political arguments in the West... often some politician or commentator will try to make a point - "t is not only good ethics or saves lives or prevents suffering, but also makes good economic sense or profit.
This is often the clincher - proving that the economics (euphemism for business profit) is more important and the final clincher of the argument. This shows where the human values rank in western debate. Now the frightening thing that I see is the same pattern becoming common in countries like India! It used to be so different when I was a child...
