Failing to get the wars going,,, so far.

You know that I try not to repeat myself but, with a few thousand posts, it is sometimes difficult. Here are a couple of excerpts from the Report From Iron Mountain.
" War was a part of the economy. Therefore, it was necessary to conceive a state of war for a stable economy.

Report from Iron Mountain, a book which uses social science data to suggest that human societies are held together by a “war system” without which other institutions could not exist. As the Report puts it: “War itself is the basic social system, within which other secondary modes of social organization conflict or conspire.”


The Report does not once cite figures either from the 604 statistical tables allegedly placed in an unpublished appendix or from the masses of other data which it claims were run through a computer
The Report directs most of its attention, however, to the social, psychological, and political consequences of the war system. War, according to the Report, not only generates patriotic allegiance, which in turn increases social cohesion and undercuts domestic strife, but it justifies the very existence of nations. “

Now, we're getting somewhere. Nations are artificial constructs held together by mutual prosperity or mutual defence. What happens when there is no need to defend from anybody?

“is the foundation for stable government; it supplies the basis for general acceptance of political authority.” "certainly not be in the best interest of a stable society to achieve it.” For example, anti-poverty and other social welfare programs can neither spend as much tax money as the war makers"

Peace Breaks Out On Korean Peninsula Despite...And Not Because Of US Neocon War Hawks
The deep State is frothing at the mouth at the prospect of losing out on the $trillions that they commanded to keep us safe. They killed a couple hundred Russians to make sure that the wars go on. They greatly fear that the populace will wake up to the never-ending costs. We we're all looking forward to world peace when The U.S.S.R. collapsed. It was blocked.

Seoul is just 660 miles from Beijing. You can bet that Pox Americana does not want to pull it's military out.

Mattis - Direct Israel-Iran Conflict ‘Very Likely’ In a perfect world, Saudi, Iran and israel would all wipe each other out. The world would be a much better place,,, MINUS 3 theocracies.
