Want to see the Industrial Military Complex in action?
ask General Wesley Clark (thanks for having the courage and coming forward to the stage with DemocracyNow! and say things like)
For no other reason, than to enrich the already super rich oild and arms industry (aka the “industrial military complex” (IMC)) (what is called in this book the “old money” the old monetary elite Rockefellers & Co) and make them even richer)
General Wesley Clark: “About 10 days after 9/11, I went through the Pentagon, and I saw Secretary Rumsfeld and Deputy Secretary Wolfowitz. I went downstairs just to say hello to some of the people on the Joint Staff who used to work for me, and one of the generals called me in. He said, “Sir, you’ve got to come in and talk to me a second.” I said, “Well, you’re too busy.” He said, “No, no.” He says, “We’ve made the decision we’re going to war with Iraq.” This was on or about the 20th of September. I said, “We’re going to war with Iraq? Why?” He said, “I don’t know.” He said, “I guess they don’t know what else to do.” So I said, “Well, did they find some information connecting Saddam to al-Qaeda?” He said, “No, no.” He says, “There’s nothing new that way. They just made the decision to go to war with Iraq.” (source democracynow.org)

Pullout of Afghanistan costs Raytheon $75 million
“that the pullout from Afghanistan equated to a $75 million revenue loss on top of another $275 million loss related to supply chain and people issues” (source)
every war is good income for those companies and “permanent warfare” would have constant flow “a subscription” of public money to private pockets
not only US has war mongering lobbyists

WWI General already knew: war is created by the rich to enrich the (alread) rich
because there is no “rich enough”?
the poor are kept stupid and brainwashed that this is a “just” war for a “just” purpose that makes sense,
while they really pay the rich in blood
