More Sales Trips Aboard
November 19, 2012
This is an interesting quote, from the Congressional testimony of Gen. David Petraeus, on March 16, 2010 . “The conflict foments anti-American sentiment, due to a perception of U.S. favoritism for Israel,” (Petraeus said in prepared testimony). “Arab anger over the Palestinian question limits the strength and depth of U.S. partnerships with governments and people’s in the [region] and weakens the legitimacy of moderate regimes in the Arab world. Meanwhile, Al-Qaeda and other militant groups exploit that anger to mobilize support.”
I thought this statement was quite revealing , when looking at the Gaza-Israel situation today. Especially as the operations continue to escalate. It shows in this statement alone, that these conflicts we are involved in, or are US approve of, are set to continue, no matter the sentiment of the people. The destabilization of an entire region will continue, as it’s desired by those who influence our policy makers.
It seems the Managing Editor for Reason.com, Tim Cavanaugh, was wrong in his statement on October 2 2012. In a television interview Tim stated, “The Military is not a Jobs Program”. It’s clear now, his sentiment wasn’t heard by the powers that be. The only group possibly pleased by an increase in international conflict, has to be the Military Industrial Complex.
I’m sure the citizens of The United States and Britain, will see their top military and political officials, making even more sales trips abroad than usual, for their country’s military and defense contractors. We have to keep that fake economy, based in military conflict, Exploding.
