A Prince of a guy

The more I think about it, the more I realize that the Iraq war is nothing more than a ruse... Something to distract America while it is murdered from within.

Think about it. When the Cold War ended, all the losers didn't just vaporize. The winners didn't just go away either. All the corporate infrastructure and those who feed on corporations wrapped up in the Military Industrial complex suffered with no war to fight.

Not only that, but Americans could pay attention to the environment and schools and municipal infrastructure and parks and greenways and things and even really obscure things like balancing our budget so we don't hand our kids a mountain of debt which went to making war profiteers rich beyond imagination. People like Dick Cheney and George H W Bush and someone else who makes those guys look like that sweetie on Romper Room who pranced around with the little kids on that live tv show in the 60's which I only got to watch when i was too sick to go to class but wasn't too sick to have "lust in my heart" as she wore her short skirt (mini's were in) on her Romper Stompers...Oh wait...What was I talking about?

Oh yeah, "Someone Else" truly evil. That would be Eric Prince, founder of Blackwater. (Interestingly, that Wikipedia entry has been severely edited this very morning...Where are the conspiracy people when you need them?)

Eric Prince looks like the kind of guy that would give the "Prince of darkness" a bad name. Blackwater, by the way, use to only mean the tea colored waters stained dark in lowland creeks by the tannin from leaves. Then it meant that nasty stuff that leaks out of a septic tank. Now...It's the name of a Corporate Mercenary Army operating in Iraq with full blessing and financial support from the Bush Administration.

When four people were brutally killed and their bodies mutilated, burned, hung, photgraphed, and shown in Newsweek, the families wanted to know what happened.

You won't believe the reat of this story. Sorry I give it to you on a Sunday.

  1. I am a 2 tour Vietnam Veteran who recently retired after 36 years of working in the Defense Industrial Complex on many of the weapons systems being used by our forces as we speak. I believed another Vietnam could be avoided with defined missions and the best armaments in the world.

    It made no difference.

    We have bought into the Military Industrial Complex (MIC). If you would like to read how this happens please see:

    Through a combination of public apathy and threats by the MIC we have let the SYSTEM get too large. It is now a SYSTEMIC problem and the SYSTEM is out of control. Government and industry are merging and that is very dangerous.

    There is no conspiracy. The SYSTEM has gotten so big that those who make it up and run it day to day in industry and government simply are perpetuating their existance.

    The politicians rely on them for details and recommendations because they cannot possibly grasp the nuances of the environment and the BIG SYSTEM.

    So, the system has to go bust and then be re-scaled, fixed and re-designed to run efficiently and prudently, just like any other big machine that runs poorly or becomes obsolete or dangerous.

    This situation will right itself through trauma. I see a government ENRON on the horizon, with an associated house cleaning.

    The next president will come and go along with his appointees and politicos. The event to watch is the collapse of the MIC.
