Americans: Serfs Ruled by Oligarchs

Consider America’s wars. As of the moment of writing, the out-of-pocket cost of America’s wars in Iraq and Afghanistan is $900,000,000,000. When you add in the already incurred future costs of veterans benefits, interest on the debt, the forgone use of the resources for productive purposes, and such other costs as computed by Nobel economist Joseph Stiglitz and Harvard University budget expert Linda Bilmes, “our” government has wasted $3,000,000,000,000--three thousand billion dollars--on two wars that have no benefit whatsoever for any American whose income does not derive from the military/security complex, about which five-star general President Eisenhower warned us.

It is now a proven fact that the US invasion of Iraq was based on lies and deception of the American public. The only beneficiaries were the armaments industries, Blackwater, Halliburton, military officers who enjoy higher rates of promotion during war, and Muslim extremists whose case the US government proved by its unprovoked aggression against Muslims. No one else benefitted. Iraq was a threat to no one, and finding Saddam Hussein and executing him after a kangaroo trial had no effect whatsoever on ending the war or preventing the start of others.

imho; The state of Israel also gained. Their finger prints were all over the run up to the illegal attack on Iraq. This was more control through chaos. Check Paul Bremer the first [viceroy] of Iraq. He purged all of the Bathists. He disbanded the Iraqi military. Hindsight says this was a mistake. Bremer worked for H. Kissinger. There was chatter that it was Kissinger who recommended Bremer for the post. They had no intention of giving power back to the Iraqi's. In order to justify this they needed an insurgency. This instant insurgency came about from the disbanded Iraqi military. imo; this was their plan all along. When it comes to DR. STRANGELOVE [KISSINGER] and his cabal, there are no mistakes. they are just suppose to look like one.
