2. Excellent article.

Esp. liked the clarity in these 2 sentences:

For Congress to approve the DSCA arms deals, the Department of Defense must certify that "the proposed sale of this equipment and support will not alter the basic military balance in the region." So the tanks to fight IS will have to be certified in writing not to affect the regional situation.

Perhaps it is better to see the immediate profits from such deals as just a part of a much bigger process,
one that demands America have enemies to crusade against to ensure the survival of the national security state.

Very few people can remain under the illusion that we care about Democracy ( here or abroad).

Maybe I should be buying War Contractor's stock, I would at least recoup some of my mis-spent tax dollars.
