DC insider Leon Panetta gleefully calls for a 30 year war against ISIS and says Hillary will be just great as president since she will be sure to have endless war, much more than that wimp Obama. Constant war is the lifeblood of DC. If keeps war industries profitable, and their largesse flows to DC in the form of the thinly-disguised bribes known as campaign contributions. Plus, politicians boost their careers by inventing new enemies then howling for more war. Think tanks, NGOs, lobbyists, and PACs get fat off war too. It’s not their kids being killed so why should they care about consequences when “there’s so much money to be made by supplying the Army with the tools of the trade.”
War is what keeps Panetta and the rest of his compromised ilk in power. That’s why they want all war all the time. And they are quite sure President Hillary will do just that. Panetta and Hillary have both criticized Obama for not being bloodthirsty enough.
U.S. officials are now all but openly saying this. “Endless War” is not dramatic rhetorical license but a precise description of America’s foreign policy.
It’s not hard to see why. A state of endless war justifies ever-increasing state power and secrecy and a further erosion of rights. It also entails a massive transfer of public wealth to the “homeland security” and weapons industry (which the US media deceptively calls the “defense sector”).
ISIS is using U.S.-made ammunition and weapons, which means U.S. weapons companies get to supply all sides of The New Endless War; can you blame investors for being so giddy?
