Speak Up: War's success story


Sunday, December 17, 2017

Since the military industrial complex began in earnest in the 1960s, we've had the two longest wars in our nation's history.

America has been around for 200 years.

The Vietnam war was 15 years and the Afghanistan war has been going on for 17 years.The two longest wars ever.

That is the sort of thing that President Eisenhower was trying to warn Americans about.

He said beware of the military industrial complex because they will go to war just for war’s sake.

It is about jobs and money, most about money.

These powerful defense contractors are all about getting the lion's share of the budget directed their way and they have been very successful.

As long as they keep a war going, it is going to continue to be successful.
