What makes it tick?

EXACTLY how the MilitaryIndustrialCongressionalComplex operates and why it MUST keep the U.S. — and probably the world — in a perpetual state of war. Includes facts, figures and FULL context – – – and it’s short!

  1. The point of the opening seems to be more inspirational to Americans than anything else.
    The presentation is a Trump promotion.
    Everyone should be aware that Trump mentioned it because he could use it as bait for Americans who oppose government spending. Fact!

    Now consider the possibility of Trump really desiring to halt the project because of cost, considering that the F-35 is highly desirable for his/the US endgame of world domination. That’s my personal offer to debate the issue.

    I would suggest that there’s no reason to think that Trump wouldn’t be highly motivated by the inspirational lead-in to the video.

    1. I’m not a Trump supporter, yet I feel the presentation was factual and informative. The entire “Russia hacked the election” nonsense started almost immediately after those tweets. The entire history of the CIA has been a series of “errors” that always worked to boost Defense/Security State spending. Trump’s token opposition to one little part of that destructive monstrosity, and the enormous covert and media operation blowback it led to, is simply useful as an example for seeing the system in play – not a promotion for Trump. One can also notice that the next piece of praise the media was allowed to utter for Trump came immediately after he announced a big increase in defense spending. Suddenly, his empty speech was judged “Presidential” by the media.

      Once one starts looking at this game in action, it becomes very obvious. Research the history of ISIS and al Qaeda and one finds they are actually supported by US covert ops, sometimes through friend countries like Saudi Arabia that are the largest outside buyer of US arms.

      1. What tweets are you talking about Josh? I’m more aware of his speech that suggested improved relations with Russia. Although I admit I’m not all that in tune with tweets.

        And also to the point of the video and the F-35, I would consider anything that Trump said on stopping that nothing but his uninformed period of time when he spewed a lot of bllsh-t. It’s just surreal to think that Trump would try anything that would oppose the military or it’s spending.

        1. What’s this thing you have for Trump, Don? He’s largely irrelevant, just a hood ornament on the machine.

          It WOULD be nice if he tried putting the brakes on, but the militaryindustrialcongressionalcomplex (yes, Ike called it that in an early draft) must be the target, Trump or no Trump.

          It’s the “financial engineering” demonstrated in the clip – – –

          1. I’m a Canadian and so have little interest in the amount of money spent on those kind of toys. Trump represents a real danger of a world war to me.
            And as I hinted, Trump would have no position on not building more of those war toys. He’s an eager hawk who used the lie of saving money on the military during his campaign. Everybody should just about be accepting that truth by now.

            I get your comment on a president being a hood ornament. So well in fact that I still have to wonder why Obama was blamed for everything bad that happened, as opposed to everything good he tried to make happen. This lesson is being taught now with Trump, I would suggest.

          2. Indeed, Don, Obama had good intentions, but you know what they say about those, paving, and Hell. That IS the function of hood ornaments after all: They stick up above the machine that runs the vehicle and get most of the attention, good or bad.

            As for the machine itself, Pres. Harry S. Truman created the most worrisome part and later regretted it. Like this:

            “Now, as nearly as I can make out, those fellows in the CIA don’t just report on wars and the like, they go out and make their own, and there’s nobody to keep track of what they’re up to. They spend billions of dollars on stirring up trouble so they’ll have something to report on. They’ve become … it’s become a government all of its own and all secret. They don’t have to account to anybody.”

            And here’s an example of just how such machines actually work. WARNING: troubling, very troubling – – –

            It’s not who or what you think — it’s the machines

  2. Thanks Josh. Questioning the need for a fighter to match or eclipse the Russians is quite valid. As I suggested, it’s only meant to be inspirational and a necessary thing to appear #1 for appearance and vanity sake.
