  Several weeks ago I read this story from a website about how the United States was planning on sending troops over to Israel with the plan to go to war with Iran. Now at the time I dismissed this article as crazy conspiracy ideology and didn’t think much more about it until now.

   When the news first broke about the latest murder of an Iran scientist I said to myself “there is no way the United States will get involved. We do not have the money, support among citizens, and with all the downsizing starting to take place in the military there is just no way.” As more stories started to come out I started to think about how big the Military Industrial War Complex has become, how much profit has been made, the book Blackwater, and the famous warning Eisenhower gave.

   War is good for business; with the Iraqi War over and the War in Afghanistan winding down these companies need to manufacture a new war for their profits. I posted this on my Facebook page about a week ago:
“K: Not ONCE did I hear ending private contracts....those should be the first to be cut just think about how much money would be I have to say B.S. D.C. is not serious about defense spending cuts until they start to end paying for mercenaries. I think more cuts in troops means an increase in a corporate military on the down low. If they were serious about it they would bring Stop Outsourcing Security bill out of committee and bring it up to a vote.”
I think there is a new war in the making. I fear that the United States will send troops into this up coming conflict with an increase in paid mercenaries. Of course the troops do not make as much money as the contractors so the troops will take the heavy hits and clear the way for the contractors. This war will be funded on the backs of the poor, tax payers, and the citizens of Iran. The government will send in troops to clear the way for the contractors/paid mercenaries (who will run amuck without fear of prosecution).

   If the United States does go to war with Iran it will hurt this country in the long run. There will be greater mistrust towards the government among citizens, economically there will be no recovery, and for foreign relations. A high price to pay for the profit of the top 0.01%. I think the industrial war complex is trying to bait Iran into a conflict in an attempt to try to manufactory a war. The war complex needs an appearance of Iran striking out first in order to justify United States involvement. The war complex choose this area of the world because of anti-Muslim feelings among many people, oil, and it is a war they can make hug profits off of with no cost to their families. Lets face it there will be no war with North Korea because that would mean the top 1% youth would be up for grabs too. No that wont happen the wealthy are content profiting of the death of the poor/working class who enlist, hard working tax payers, and the people of under developed countries.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
