Fifty Years of the Military Industrial Complex

 

Fifty years ago, President Eisenhower warned us of the dangers of the Military Industrial Complex. “The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists….”

The war against Islam continues with expensive drone bombs and a massive invasion army in both Afghanistan and Iraq (we ain’t out yet, not even close! check the body count….).

Military contractors enjoy multi-billion dollar no-bid contracts–and pay no taxes–yet they spend millions each year lobbying to make sure that supporters of permanent war are our representatives.

Nobody cares but the people making money, and the rubes using it to fantasize about the return of their gods.
