But, but, we have to feed the military / industrial complex!

“We are thus in the position of having to borrow from Europe to defend Europe, of having to borrow from China and Japan to defend Chinese and Japanese access to Gulf oil, and of having to borrow from Arab emirs, sultans and monarchs to make Iraq safe for democracy. We borrow from the nations we defend so that we may continue to defend them. To question this is an unpardonable heresy called ‘isolationism.’

[Once again it comes down to the stupidity of the American people to allow this to happen. This state of continual war that benefits only corporations and the Congressmen they’ve bought. In the meantime they kill young American soldiers pointlessly and indebt future generations to a debt they’ll never be able to pay back. Why shouldn’t they? Miraculously, the government school system has educated several generations of idiots now to believe this is the way it should be. Sure we were betrayed by the press. Sure we were betrayed by our elected leaders. But ultimately it comes down to the voters being responsible, or not. I just hate being drug down with them.]
