Rich man's war, poor man's fight. That is what was quoted in Ken Burn's documentary on the Civil War. Nothing has changed. While the propaganda is waged for the 99% to hate Iran enough to wage a war and fight her, the 1%, the rich seek ways to trade with her and become even richer.
The poor, unemployed will volunteer as in Iraq and fight a war for the rich to profit from the advancement in stem cell research. It is how the rich remain rich. They use the financial phrase “other people’s money, in this case federal funding backed by Congress, to pay the expense of these wars for their profits.
How did we become a nation of employees that work and fight to make others rich? This all while we worry about layoffs, cuts in pay, foreclosures, the exorbitant cost of a college education, insurance companies controlling our health care, giving up liberties to the profit of the security complex all done as the results of blood of our youth fighting wars for the rich.
Listen to the names of the countries represented at this Congress.
