Below the fold on the April 25 and 26 (Weekend) edition are these two headlines side by side:
“World Awash In Too Much Of Almost Everything.” and “U.S. Commandos Span The Globe.” Subheading: “American special operators landed in 81 countries last year, as the U.S. seeks new ways to project power.”
“World Awash In Too Much Of Almost Everything.” (This refers to the commodities bubble and what the banksters call the dreaded deflation. They hate deflation because it makes the things they want to sell cheaper with less expectation of price increases. People will save for retirement making investment money available instead of spending every penny trying to snatch up those bargains before the price inflates. The banksters want the illusion of prosperity that inflation creates so their cronies in government can claim good times and stay in power so they can grant more of your favors to the status quo.
The second headline: “U.S. Commandos Span The Globe.” Subheading: “American special operators landed in 81 countries last year, as the U.S. seeks new ways to project power.”
Put these two headlines together and it is self explanatory why we have to have a military as large as the rest of the whole world combined. Each of those 81 countries has the good guys and the bad guys. No matter which side we take, the other side is then our enemy. We now have enemies in 81 countries, guaranteed. Follow the campaign donations for the hawkish contributors and it becomes evident we don’t really intend to make the world a better place, we just like the taxpayers to buy men and military hardware to enrich industry that would otherwise not exist. That money would buy swing sets and cancer cures instead, for example.
