 Military Industrial Complex


“The United States Government will spend more on the military in fiscal year 2003, than all the rest of the countries on Earth combined. Current expenditures are 437 billion and our past obligations are 339 billion, this equals 776 billion. 46% of our Taxes go to the Military Industrial Complex: TMark Elsis Lovearth Jan. 8, 2002

              The first time the term Military-Industrial Complex was publicly uttered was in President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s farewell speech at which time he warned the AmeriKKKan public to beware the insidious influence and creeping hold the military, defense research- technology, corporate and governmental hydra had on the nation. Would the AmeriKKKan people had heeded Eisenhower’s warning, this nation would not have morphed into the imperialist juggernaut has become today; with a global empire that rivals its European predecessors. Today as AmeriKKKa stands on the brink of launching an ill advised and immoral pre-emptive attack/invasion against a woefully undermanned, poorly equipped and inferior military capability and civilian population in Iraq, many AmeriKKKans are ambiguous about the looming war while increasing numbers are joining the anti-war movement despite the overwhelming support  given to Bush & Co. by the pliant corporate mass media. People around the world are becoming alarmed at AmeriKKKa’s arrogance and unreasonableness. This is an example of the power of the military/industrial/propaganda/political complex in action. Large defense contractors which also own media networks hire lobbyists and make sizable campaign contributions to both political parties to hawk their wares and promote government spending on their weapons, logistical support systems and mercenary forces (now called military or security for hire). The costs to the AmeriKKKan taxpayers runs in the billions money wise while incalculable damage is being done psychologically and metaphysically. The collapse of the Soviet Union which was never really a formidable adversary (look at how inept their army proved to be in Afghanistan and their dismal record domestically as an economic production system) did not stop the drain on taxpayers for defense spending. It slowed it down a bit but there were always players in the wings waiting their turn to make a buck pumping military spending. One such player is the Carlyle Group a very profitable venture capital/acquisition company which has used the influence of its high profile members (former C.I.A. Director and U.S. President George H.W. Bush, former Secretary of Defense Frank Carlucci, former Secretary of State James Baker, former British Prime Minister John Majors and former World Bank Treasurer Afsanch Masheyekhi as were members of the bin-Laden family until immediately following 9-11) to generate  huge profits in a myriad of businesses most notably aerospace and defense, automotive, energy, telecommunications and media, healthcare and real estate. However recent developments stemming from 9-11 have raised a caution flag about conflicts of interests and influence peddling given George H.W. Bush is the father of George W. Bush and a close friend of Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Colin Powell and Condoleeza Rice The Carlyle Group  is doing well with its investments and acquisitions in defense and war as are the major defense contractors who are racking up huge profits as the “War On Terrorism” expands across the globe. According to The Carlyle Group’s Website since 1987 the firm has invested 7.2 billion in 263 transactions with an aggregate accusation value of 19 billion. Not bad. I’m all for economic growth but we must always remember and understand Western capitalism is a predatory system based on the invasion exploitation and subjugation of people of color world wide. The bottom line of the Carlyle Group is enhanced by war, the suffering and continued exploitation of the world’s poor. Bush and Co.’s pending move on Iraq is a continuation of this predatory  tradition. It’s all about  oil and geo-strategic global positioning to enhance the AmeriKKKan Empire which will enrich and benefit a select few.

              September 11 just gave the Bush Cabal the excuse they needed to initiate their plan to expropriate the world’s land, labor and resources. Bush came into office with a war and imperialist agenda that would make the Roman Legions, the Huns and Hitler blush. What we are witnessing now is its execution, on a global scale. To accomplish this they need advanced weaponry, an all pervasive propaganda apparatus to lobotomize  the masses, sophisticated surveillance systems to monitor both foreign and domestic subjects and willing soldiers to serve as cannon fodder, invasion and occupational forces. The military industrial, technology complex stands poised to provide  support for the AmeriKKKan Empire. Not only will they supply weapons, but companies like Dick Cheney’s former company, Haliburton will contract to provide a myriad of services such as logistics, oil drilling, pipeline construction and maintenance as well as security (soldiers for hire). The super rich like to keep it all in the family. The problem for the rest of us is, while the super rich and their minions are getting richer, Joe and Jane Sixpack will be losing their sons and daughters on the battle and oil fields in far off places like Afghanistan (we need to wake up and realize all these casualties there can’t be from helicopter crashes and motor vehicle accidents) Iraq and coming soon, Colombia South America. I would put North Korea in the mix but Bush and Co. have shown their true colors and aren’t about to take on countries that might actually be able to present formidable résistance, not at present anyway. What does all this mean? It means that they are not spending your tax dollars merely to design, manufacture and stockpile weapons of mass destruction and maintain a global ready military presence just for the sake of doing it. This is part and parcel to the AmeriKKKan Empire; and the military industrial technological clique is a critical piece in the puzzle. Along with the latest weapons which only sick and demented people could design and invent anyway, there is also the need to squash dissent and keep the masses in check using fear and intimidation and promoting an anti life, anti nature mentality. This is the job of the mass media. So if the anti-war and peace movements become too vociferous and present major challenges to Bush’s imperialistic plans, don’t be surprised if the Bush cabal declares martial law, invokes Fatherland, oops I mean Homeland Security (REX 84 King Alfred Plan etc) repressive type scenarios and inters massive numbers of AmeriKKKan citizens. In a worst case scenario I can see Bush calling for martial law, sending the National Guard and Reserves into the streets of AmeriKKKa  and suspending the 2004 elections. Sound far fetched? Think about this, did you think five years ago laws like the US PATRIOT ACT and Homeland Security that virtually nullify the Bill of Rights and Constitution (which never applied to Africans in AmeriKKKa anyway) would be on the books and enforced? The AmeriKKKan people should have listened to ol’ Ike.
