The next war: If you want to predict the future, create it. Demonize countries and guarantee the next war by manipulating public opinion: fear of terrorists blowing up shopping centers, the threat of drug crazed men raping your daughters, the danger of Russia and China invading – countries that pose zero threat to America. The big corporations and the military / industrial complex support the news media with their advertising. It is their agenda that is pushed forward. Instill fear in the American people until you cry,” Yes, protect us from crime, drugs and terrorists.

For the military to function they must create enemies for future wars. Actions such as keeping prisoners and torturing them without ever being charged, assures us of a continual stream of such enemies. This is, in fact, how Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS, evolved. He was arrested and imprisoned for four years in Camp Bucca. When he was released, he said, “See you guys in New York,” a reference to his intention to carry the fight to the West.

One may ask how many Abu Bakrs we have created with drone attacks against people in Yemen, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Algeria, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, and Mali. Taking into account that six civilians are killed for every one terrorist, the number of future U.S. enemies will insure many wars to come.

The military industrial complex is a six hundred billion dollar a year business. New weapons, new technology, don’t get authorized unless they are going to be used. The generals who advocate war, and produce positive results, go to work for the defense contractors after they retire.

My political commentary is meant to bring a heightened consciousness and real discussion to people intent on changing social, political, and economic conditions. Politics as usual is destroying our Democracy. Government corruption demands real political change, not just a new candidate in the old system. Political leadership only leads to self-serving agendas and self aggrandizement. Politicians eschew social causes for personal enrichment. Political power corrupt morality and rationality. The result is criminal behavior and Constitutional crimes.
