Neocons Squander Trillions on War While the Middle-Class Evaporates 

Thugs are not in the business of taking your money and then treating you to dinner. 

If the state is addicted to stealing your money, at least it could spend it on the people. But that would be like asking for a unicorn at Christmas. 

State spawned sociopaths are no different than common criminals who stick a gun in your face and demand your wallet. Thugs are not in the business of taking your money and then treating you to dinner. 

Defense One reports the Iraq “war”—an illegal and immoral invasion and murder of a people weakened by a decade of severe economic terrorism politely known as sanctions—cost you and me around $2 trillion. 

Even if the U.S. administration decided to leave—or was evicted from—Iraq immediately, the bill of war to the U.S. to date would be an estimated $1,922 billion in current dollars. This figure includes not only funding appropriated to the Pentagon explicitly for the war, but spending on Iraq by the State Department, the care of Iraq War veterans and interest on debt incurred to fund 16 years of U.S. military involvement in the country.

Note the final sentence—“debt incurred.” Banksters love war, mass murder, incalculable suffering and misery precisely for this reason—the inhumane practice of usury, compounded, no matter the consequences. 

It’s interesting how the neoliberal regime change agenda is characterized by the propaganda media. Defense One is produced by Atlantic Media and is owned by the “centrist” David Bradley (he donated handsomely to the Obama and Clinton campaigns). 

Add to this approximately $59 billion spent by the State Department and USAID on Iraq and Syria for democracy promotion, reconstruction, training, and removing unexploded bombs.

I had a good laugh at this one—“democracy promotion” by the State Department and USAID. Propaganda doesn’t get much more transparent than this.

  1. If one realizes that the pyramid cap gets its rocks off in using depleted uranium projectiles to litter the countryside with nuclear waste; besides all other sundry means of killing, maiming and generally causing suffering then the rest of their criminal activities (banking as is) is child’s play. The absurd reality in which we all live would not be tolerated by any normal individual unless they were programmed from birth to accept it and pay it forward.

    What we as persons view, who have beaten back the programming to some extent, is an abyss. Then we try to warn our fellow travelers about its dangers and inhumanity. This is all we can do in trying to bring about that critical mass that will quite easily then wash away the current reality and offer up a chance at change. This is why we write or otherwise communicate with the like minded and ever trying to increase our numbers while the forces arrayed against us try to limit our success in this in whatever way they can. Evil stalks this world and the mostly good must try to defeat it. It is that simply.

  2. Amen. It would serve us all to promote a site that has home addresses of these thugs. Just to make them panic that it is out there, no more than that.
