9. Agreed, But National Pentagon Radio

 

is merely a symptom of the larger problem: the MIC which Eisenhower warned us of.

the U.S. never actually left the war footing we went on in order to win the big one, WW II. we're been
at war since then-- first with the phony "communist threat", and now the "Islamic terrorist threat".. study the
propaganda used in both cases; it's virtually the same. there's continually a "dire, deadly" threat against
the "security" (read: financial domination of the world) of the U.S. or "U.S. interests in the world", which
must be protected by the most expensive military force in world history.

"democrats" in congress go along with the war mongering, war-profiteering.. just like the repugs, thus
proving there's totally NO difference between the "two" political parties when it comes to this policy.

there's plenty of other examples of this-- but we'll save it for another thread.
