  •  Amen. It's been this way for a long time altho (9+ / 0-)

    now it's in hyperdrive in the quest for world supremacy.  Remember General Smedley Butler and his book, War is a Racket.  He was a Marine General, the most decorated Marine prior to WWII.  

    "War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses.   I spent most of my time being a high class muscle- man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. ."

    Even with the unsecret wars people still delude themselves that it's about fighting terrorism, being a Global Force for Good, and humanitarianism. The country that purports to be all about democracy is the one that prevents democracy the most.

    "I'm an antiwar propagandist as accused by democrats. Not even republicans have called me that."
