Forum Post: Of "War" and Profit.

Posted 1 year ago on May 16, 2013, 10:49 a.m. EST by shoozTroll (17632)
This content is user submitted and not an official statement

I've taken a lot of guff over the last year, for trying to explain how protracted (and likely, no bid) contracts are one of the reasons for our protracted "wars".

Turns out I am uncomfortably close to the truth.

You will find the usual players here.

http://www.alternet.org/how-contractors-have-raked-385-billion-build-and-support-bases-abroad-2001?page=0%2C0

And a particularly egregious one here.

http://www.allgov.com/news/where-is-the-money-going/kbr-tells-us-army-it-will-cost-500-million-and-take-13-years-to-close-out-its-iraq-contract-130515?news=850021

Once upon a time, our military could stand on it's own.

Not anymore.

Is full privatization the future?

Good post shooz. It is all about the Corporate War Of Aggression. Control military, water, food, education, medical, etc. It is happening.

AllGov is an interesting site.

I just found this.

Afgans are taxing these contractors at an incredible rate.

Guess who really pays that tax bill?

Just another example of corp(se)oRATion Greed - No Surprise - Profits over People - it is just more plain to see in the aspect of war. Their operations are more visible now. Their ongoing effort to rule ( misrule ).

The current rise of the corp(se)oRATion really began in earnest during the cold war - as government unleashed the monster in it's ( governments ) program/effort to democratize the World. That is when corp(se)oRATions were given much power and a free hand to infiltrate societies around the world to help Westernize/Democratize their populations thinking. The monster has continued to grow by leaps and bounds since then. The monster's plan was not democratizing - it's plan was corp(se)oRATization.

  • The monster created/unleashed has run wild.

  • And now begins (fairly openly) dictating to governments.

"Beyond the sheer volume of dollars heading overseas, an analysis of Pentagon spending reveals a troubling pattern: the majority of benefits have gone to a relatively small group of private contractors. In total, almost a third of the $385 billion has flowed into the coffers of just 10 top contractors, including scandal-prone companies like KBR, the former subsidiary of Halliburton, and oil giant BP. "

"The problem is, it’s remarkably difficult to figure out who’s been benefiting from all the taxpayer money. The government doesn’t bother to compile such information. This meant I had to pick through hundreds of thousands of contracts and research scores of companies in countries worldwide.

I began with publicly available government contract data and followed a methodology for tracking funds used by the Commission on Wartime Contracting. This allowed me to compile a list of every Pentagon contract with a “place of performance” -- that is, the country where most of a contract’s work is performed -- outside the United States since the start of the Afghan war (fiscal year 2002).

There were 1.7 million of them. "

The extent is overwhelming.

[-] -1 points by AlwaysWillBeAlwaysRight (-72) 1 year ago

You might want to study history. There were big corporations controlling governments way before the cold war. The concept of oligarchs dates back to ancient greece. During the colonization era there were all kinds of big companies like the East India Company. In that company, all share holders were rich merchants and aristocrats. The government did not own any shares and had little control over the company. There are many other examples. To think big corporations is something new is to be bat blind when it comes to history. In many fields, there's more competition now then there used to be. A lot of big monopolies have been dismantled. Of course, the problem of corporations still remains extremely huge, it's just not something new at all.

You stated - "The current rise of the corp(se)oRATion really began in earnest during the cold war"

This is simply not true. There were big corporations controlling governments way before the cold war. Bankers have also been manipulating the system long before the cold war.

Companies during the colonization era treated countries much worse than the corporations of today. It's sad you forget this. They came in and simply pillaged, killed people, and made slaves.

Studying history will not hurt you. It can only help you better understand what it going on.

[-] -1 points by AlwaysWillBeAlwaysRight (-72) 1 year ago

The current rise of corporations started many hundreds years ago. What has happened since the Cold War is simply a continuation, nothing new at all.

You point recent history, but make it seem like something special happened during the time of the Cold War. Nothing special happened. Corporations were there before, and they continued after. You just randomly picked the Cold War as some kind of marker. Why? You could just have well picked any other time in history, like corporations started after Michael Jackson's Thriller album was released.

What do you think changed during the Cold War?

[-] -1 points by AlwaysWillBeAlwaysRight (-72) 1 year ago

Why did you choose the Cold War as the point where the "current rise" of corporations began? Was this just a random choice on your part? There must have been a reason why you chose the Cold War, no? Nothing special happened during that time?

There is no such thing as a current rise. Corporations have been rising in power since hundreds of years. Nothing special happened during the Cold War. You just picked that marker completely randomly.

Go suck an egg shit for brains. The reasoning was given in the comment. Short term memory problems as well as reading incomprehension 4 You - Hey?

You stated originally - "That is when corp(se)oRATions were given much power and a free hand to infiltrate societies around the world to help Westernize/Democratize their populations thinking."

But western civilizations were doing this during colonial times. Again, nothing new. They were sending missionaries to teach aboriginals the way of the west. They had schools were Indians and children from other countries had to learn English. 100 years ago, way before the Cold War, children in Congo were taught that Belgium was their home land. Corporations were already setting themselves up in foreign lands during this time.

I see no evidence for your claim. Quite the opposite. There's all sorts of evidence that Western take over of the world by corporations started way before the Cold War.

You're simply wrong. Please refresh your knowledge of history. There are a lot of good books out there. You can stop using this site 24 hours a day and devote a bit of time to reading. That's always good.

Theres nothing really conservative about forcing people to buy things at the federal level. Its pretty fuckin insane. Not liberal either, because it takes power away from the little guys and gives it to the big ones.

The fact that the media has many people locked into this description battle of either/or on every issue is a bit frustrating.

There is more to life than conservative/liberal. Theres a lot more. Those two definitions are actually very limiting. Yet they are the only ones that the hanger ons on the right and the left use.

Everything has to be either liberal or conservative. Thats it. Theres no other choices. Theres nothing inbetween or different or anything else.

Either/or. Pick one. And then accept 100% of the other stuff that comes with that decision. There is no room for anyone who says - I like this over here, and I also like that over there. Theres no room that guy, someone who makes his own decisions.

Its very frustrating. And its not an accident either. And sometimes I wonder if you ever look at things like that. Do you ever take a step back and say "man. there has got to be a better way at looking at this stuff"?

We need to seperate what liberals in Congress have to the word, and conservatives in Congress have done to it as well. They've destroyed it.

Dems and Reps in congress have no clue what either of those mean. Its more money at any costs. Thats it. Win the election, get the gifts, and then work on the next one.

Our democracy is rigged. Its a joke. But I wouldnt then say "thats what democracy is, its a platform for rich people to fuck people"...

I think the minute we start classifying the terms liberal and conservative based off of how rich assholes act, we are in trouble. And that minute came a long long time ago. Hence our current situation.
