The military-industrial complex summarized in one tweet:
Can’t put it any better than that.
The Beltway foreign policy elite is apparently willing to risk war with nuclear-armed Russia simply so that they can further line their pockets.
Now, as I wrote last night, I’m actually starting to think that this whole “IMMINENT INVASION OF UKRAINE!” narrative might be a big bamboozle–a lie spread by the Brandon Administration and the corporate media so that Brandon can look like a big tough guy when Russia appears to suddenly back down from invading Ukraine, even though he may have never been planning to do so in the first place.
I hope that this is the case. I hope all the war rumblings are phony and contrived and purely corporate media hype.
But if it’s not, and we actually do end up getting involved militarily in the Russia-Ukraine situation, just know that it’s not because it serves America’s interest. It’s because 400 Beltway elites want to remodel their bathrooms.
