Afghanistan

Who should we blame for Afghanistan?

Fox News clearly has hunkered down in its bunker to put the blame on Biden.

CNN responds by heaping the guilt on Trump.

Sigh.

It’s the same old game that the elites want to rope you into playing.

Republicans versus Democrats.

Please don’t get suckered.

Please don’t get conned.

Please don’t get hoodwinked or bamboozled.

What happened in Afghanistan is an indictment of the elites who control both parties.

Afghanistan was the creation of Corporate America who controls the political class lock stock and barrel.

Afghanistan, my friend, was another war created by Corporate America to make money for Corporate America.

Forget about the minerals in Afghanistan.

The real money, trillions of it, was made in fighting the war.

Welcome to the new reality.

The reality is that America’s economic model is war.

America is no longer a place where we make things. America is a place where we fight wars to enrich the elites.

It’s not just the defense contractors. It’s incorrect to pin it all on Raytheon.

Everybody makes money off war if you are a member of Corporate America.

McDonald’s makes money. Starbucks makes money.

Let me explain.

In order to fight a war in a jungle, Vietnam, in the mountains, Afghanistan, in a desert, Iraq, you have to re-create Corpus Christi Texas.

You have to create a city for 250,000 soldiers and civilian personnel.

That means that you have to create everything in the city from the streets to the ice cream bars.

Look at the room you are sitting in now and point to any object randomly. Wherever your finger points to, whether it’s gypsum board, a picture on the wall, a ceiling fan, tile on the floor, a television set, drinking glasses, pillows, window panes, all of those items are necessary.

Once you understand that, you understand why war is so attractive to Corporate America.

War is a make work project where everyone benefits. It’s very much like those ghost cities that China builds. You know what I’m talking about, right?

No?

China builds ghost cities, enormous cities that are unoccupied. They were built to make work for the workers.

In the United States we build cities also, but we build them in other countries when we go to war.

That’s our economic model, friend.

And now you know why war exists.

It doesn’t exist to win it anymore.

That’s why the wars last so fucking long.

Winning the war would mean the cash cow would end.

OMG, that would be terrible for the economy.

Beyond that, the elites take a disproportionate share of the trillions that are necessary to fight the war.

How do you think the rich got so rich?

Here’s a kicker for you. A cold war in which we don’t fight a war but instead build ships and bases because we are afraid of a war make even more money for the wealthy elites.

Peace through strength is the euphemism that the knuckleheads give it. Only it never leads to peace, not in the past or now.

Cold Wars are the elixir of life for the war gods.

That’s why Fox News and CNN are always drumming up the threat of Russia or China attacking us.

Who in fuck‘s name are they kidding?

None of these countries was ever a threat to America.

Do you want to know why?

Because we are oceans away from them.

In addition to that, our military spending is astronomically larger than theirs.

We are the biggest motherfuckers in the valley. That we should have to fear anyone is a joke.

Our biggest enemy is Corporate America.

Fox News and CNN both promote war. They love war. They loved the Afghanistan war.

They promoted the war because Corporate America wanted them to promote the war.

Corporate America owns them.

Corporate America also controls The New York Beobacter and The Washington Goebbels who also hawk for war.

Ditto to the Wall Street Fascist.

But none of them want you to know that it’s Corporate America that controls them.

So to distract you they play up the same old tiresome dog and pony show of Republicans versus Democrats.

As long as you are focused on this stupid Republicans versus Democrats sporting match that they promote, you will never understand that it’s Corporate America that is the enemy.

If you have a loved one who died in Afghanistan or Vietnam or any of the other useless wars America fights, I empathize with you.

If you want your loved one’s death or injury to count for something, let it count for this: The complete grinding into dust of Corporate America.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Archer Crosley
