Military Industrial Empire Thrives on Turmoil
Wednesday, September 19, 2012
You can call it karma or blowback, whatever makes you happy. The bottom line is that what America is now facing both internationally and domestically is all due to being a military industrial empire. The protesters in the streets overseas are in countries that most of us here at home would have difficulty finding on a map, for goodness sake!
The majority of those folks are not out there because of some inflammatory YouTube film. Perhaps the ultra fanatical Islamists may wish to have that the rallying point of the protests … to then better control their fellow citizens. No, the film most likely unleashed centuries-old rage and frustration with the United States’ imperial designs.
I mean, just how stupid do you think most hard working foreigners are … regardless of skin color, nationality or educational level? Our nation bombs the hell out of their homes and villages. We send our military to occupy their country, or those of neighboring ones, and install puppet governments. American and European corporations operate offshore in these places, sometimes with local surrogates, and they exploit the working stiffs. Plain and simple.
A sneaker that Nike sells in excess of $150.00 is made by a worker who earns what … one or two American dollars? American and European banks and investment firms screw the locals out of their money and we wonder why the outrage? Get real!
