  •  we are breeding the next generation of terrorists (5+ / 0-)

    I note that the Russians claim to have taken out a top terrorist in their ongoing war against a Muslim insurgency on their own borders (second time they killed this guy)

    It seems neither our leadership nor Putin understand where terrorists come from

      they understand perfectly well, and are deliberately ensuring the next generation of terrorists, thus ensuring the continued flow of public cash to private armaments interests.

      They understand very well.

      If we are planning on at least another couple of decades of world-wide war on a tactic we'll need all the enemies we can find in order to justify it.

      Look at what has happened in the past few years. Imagine what they can do The Bill of Rights in twenty more years.

      Consider who benefits, where the money is going, and think for a moment about the huge amount of wealth which will have been transferred to the favored ones, the MIC, the huge banks, the oil giants and others in twenty more years.

        Yes, Bush and now Obama are calling for endless War On Terror™ so the arms dealers and bomb makers and drone makers can profit endlessly. Meanwhile the bridges, streets and tunnels in the US are in complete disrepair, the schools are broke, and 20% of Americans need food stamps.

        As many have pointed out, imagine if a foreign country were inflicting food and medical sanctions (killing 100s of thousands of children) or raining down bombs by drones in the skies over the US?

        Obama is just sickening at this stage. Some Nobel Peace Prize laureate.
