The Economics of the 'Forever Wars'

Any Effective Anti-War Movement Must Readjust Its Understanding Of What War Is

From the Comments Thread


The very first thing that ANYONE has to do to understand just exactly WHY the US continues to conduct perpetual war is to somehow, some way obtain an accurate understanding of the relationship between the military industrial complex, the MSM, the USD and US “politics”.
The private Fed’s USD and US Treasury bonds used to be backed by physical gold. This meant that other countries who had purchased US bonds could send those bonds back to the US Treasury and receive physical gold in return. Nixon ended this convertibility because some nations were sending their bonds back to the US and wanted gold in return, and Nixon realized that there was literally not enough gold in the US depositories to allow the US government to continue borrowing money through the sale of Treasury bonds to fund the US’s social programs AND, at the same time, the perpetual wars of worldwide corporate/USD hegemony. Watch the following video and notice that Nixon says that what he is doing is only “temporary”. (IMO watching this video should be a mandatory part of public school curriculum.)
So what “backed” USDs after Nixon closed the gold window? Since that day, the private Federal Reserve’s trillions of fiat USD were/are backed by military force (drones), not gold. Put differently, the USD is now on the drone standard.
First and foremost, we MUST all understand that perpetual war and “fiat” (printed out of thin air) USD go hand in hand. One CAN NOT exist long without the other.
For just one example, MERCENARIES paid by fiat USD:
“How the US sent $12bn in cash to Iraq. And watched it vanish”
now replace draftees, so that in today’s US wars there are no coffins flying back to Main Street USA to get the bewildered herd of grieving parents poltically riled up. The importance of this cannot be overstated.
Quite intentionally, there is very little MSM coverage of the hundreds of thousands of US-funded murders and atrocities all over the globe and what little coverage there is only serves to support the US’s exceptional “peace-making”, “nation-building”, “democracy-spreading” efforts. This is actually and extremely difficult, astronomically expensive undertaking, but if its present WAR/EXTORTION-BASED ECONOMIC SYSTEM is to continue, the US Elite has literally no other choice than to do it.
Are YOU US citizens AWARE that you are living in a WAR/EXTORTION-BASED economic system?
In closing, here’s the US’s economic/political system in a nutshell. Jerome Powelll holds down his computer’s “0” key for longer and longer periods of time so that the TBTF banks get bailed out by future taxpayers time and time again. The US national debt skyrockets and it will never, ever to be “paid back”. The US’s Fed-funded miliatary-security-congressional-industrial complex literally forces the rest of the world to accept those printed-out-of-thin-air USDs as payment for their REAL goods. Any nation that does not comply with US diktat or fails to accept fiat USD as payment for its REAL resources, products, etc. either has its government replaced or is reduced to stone-age chaos by the complex. THAT is “the Matrix” that you just happened to be born into. Now that you know what you’re “living in”, what are YOU going to do about it?
