This isn’t what we’re told of course. But it is sadly all too true. And the military industrial complex likes the “progressives” right back.
War is very profitable for some. Mostly people at the top, the connected cronies. War is however hell for the innocently bombed and the refugees and the raped and the otherwise victimized in the fog of hell. We should never forget that. War is a very bad thing. Perhaps the worst thing humans can engage in. It is many cases if not most cases an immoral thing. And war should always be a last resort for a civilized country. We used to know this.
