|Hmm, what other threats can we fabricate for the public?|
Achieving peace, prosperity, enlightenment, and good old-fashioned brotherly love with the global neighborhood is not the forte of the United States Government. There simply always must be a phantom bogeyman abroad, who is working night-and-day to bring about the destruction of our country, because they must “hate freedom” or some other ridiculous Bushism.
Peace doesn’t make the military-industrial complex any money, and therefore the politicians who are financially backed by these venomous corporations would not get paid either. So what do they do? Continue to cook up completely irrational justifications to continue (or hike) our preposterous military spending which is crippling the nation with debt!
Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), recently presented a speech before Congress which highlighted his “top security concerns” going into the years ahead. He highlighted three particular areas of concern (which should really be of no concern if the government actually learned how to GET ALONG with the world instead of provoke it).
1. “The threat of weapons of mass destruction falling into the hands of non-state actors, and the proliferation of these weapons to other state actors”.
(Translation: A repeat of the same horse manure excuses used to invade Iraq and Afghanistan, with the finger now being specifically pointed at Syria, a country which several hawkish figures in the U.S. government still desperately want to bomb or invade. In addition, the three remaining countries which do not have a Rothschild controlled central bank are also prominent “culprits” for this bullet point. They are Iran, North Korea, and Cuba)
2. “The emergence of foreign militaries with capabilities approaching those of the United States and our allies”.
(Translation: China & Russia)
3. “Increasing tensions in the Pacific”
