In 2006, it was reported that 151 members of Congress had up to $195.5 million of their personal assets invested in defense corporations. It’s now 2012 and I can only imagine that those Congressmen have made a good deal of return on their investments. These are the same people who vote to keep funding all the wars we fight and insure that we are in continued conflicts world wide. Moreover, the CEO’s of these ‘defense’ corporations sit on advisery boards that draft and implement foriegn policy. Clearly, anybody can see that ‘peace’ is not good for their business, so in who’s interests are they advising? War is a racket.
