Washington's only solution is drones, arms, killing, military pressure to achieve what it believes are goals in its interests. Interventions in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Yemen, Syria, Congo, Phillippeans, Balkans, Somalia have failed. Lives lost. Trillions wasted. We enable endless new recruits that want to attack us by killing their countrymen and being invaders.. Banks and military contractors profited. When will the US build America instead of blowing up the globe? China trades around the globe, establishes relations, doesn't overthrow governments, doesn't come in with an army, doesn't fire a shot and is beating the shit out of us in trade and profits. http://truth-out.org/news/item/10166-the-military-solution-the-lessons-washington-cant-draw-from-the-failure-of-the-military-option

China's economy is built on sweatshops, some of the world's most cruelist, which enrich Western multi-national corporations, including U.S. corporations like Apple, Wal-Mart and many more. China is simply a link in the world capitalist system, one based on super-exploitation, and is not in any way "separate" from U.S. domination. http://wp.me/p2cpPS-x

Interesting take. Also the Inner Party and military profit. That's why they don't want war or conflict; bad for business and cuts profits.

I believe this post hits close to what is fostering many of these problems we are experiencing here in the U.S.A. Yet so few are focused on standing up against those wars Washington is propagating.

What ever did happen to the antiwar movement?

It exists but a ghost of itself because the draft was stopped. This was the greatest lesson learned from Vietnam. With no sons getting killed, the public regards it as out of sight out of mind. + The fawning media are government stenographers to wave the flag and keep the money flowing into congress and the profiteering military contractors.

It's starting to spread. Money to finance war, from taxes, is way down. It won't end well.
