US Pads Defense Industry Profits By Arming Both Sides In Conflict

Why risk being on the losing end of a conflict, when you can hedge your bets and maximize profits by supplying both sides?

    KITCHENER, Ontario — (Analysis) The United States has long billed itself as “the land of the free and the home of the brave.” This fairytale receives credence within the country’s own borders, as its lemming-like citizens place hand on heart, look at the waving flag, and wipe tears from their eyes.

    Yet a good story doesn’t often play quite as well when cultures and traditions are different, and for countries that have a free press or that have been victimized by the U.S. — and their name is legion — the lofty statements about liberty and equality that U.S. spokespeople are forever mouthing don’t hold much water.

    From the Philippines, Mexico, Chile, Brazil and Nicaragua, right through Korea, Vietnam and Grenada, to Iraq, Syria, Yemen and Palestine today, the United States’ blatant hypocrisy is on full display, as the citizens of those nations paid or continue to pay a high price for daring to be independent when the U.S. wanted their natural resources, or who had the temerity to democratically elect leadership that was too far to the left to accommodate U.S. corporate interests. And in the case of Palestine, being on the opposite end of a powerful political lobby causes their suffering at the hands of the U.S.



    And even within the U.S., the fantasy of freedom and equality proclaimed by the corporate-owned media falls far short of the experience of many citizens:

    Unarmed young black men serve as target practice for white police officers, with the nearly complete compliance of the judiciary and political establishment.

    Women are paid, on average, 80 percent of what men earn in comparable positions.

    Students graduate from colleges and universities burdened by tens of thousands, sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars, of debt, payable to the U.S. government; meanwhile, corporations borrow at a fraction of the student rate.

    Children live in poverty at shocking levels for an industrial nation.

    There are 1.49 million homeless people in this country, including scores of veterans who naively thought they were fighting for liberty. On any given night, more than 578,000 homeless people are without shelter — that’s more than half a million Americans sleeping on streets, in cars, under tents and in other exposed places every night.

    But what is any of that when the bottom line is and always has been the almighty dollar? While exporting death by bombing nations around the world, the U.S. also does a brisk business in the international weapons market, making it the world’s top arms exporter. It buys these weapons from domestic manufacturers and defense contractors like Lockheed Martin — companies with deep pockets that contribute generously to the campaign coffers of elected officials who do their bidding, and thus keep their profits high.

    It only makes sense that the need for such armaments will grow as wars are waged. And the U.S. wages more wars than all other nations combined.

     

    Maximizing profits for a deep-pocketed defense industry

    But someone in the hallowed halls of Congress figured out that it isn’t really necessary to take sides in international conflicts or internal uprisings around the world. Doing so risks being on the losing side. Losing, of course, isn’t all that important as long as there is money to be made, but it does limit profit margins. So why not provide weapons to both sides? This would keep the arms manufacturers happy and maintain the flow of contributions to political campaigns.

    Now, this strategy is not without risk; one must consider what U.S. citizens would think if they knew that their beloved government was siding with both sides of a conflict. But, as with any good business model, risk mitigation strategies are developed. With the corporate-owned media in the pocket of the government (fascism, anyone?), the people will only know what the government wants them to know. Any conflict can be spun as a contest of good versus evil, freedom versus oppression, or whatever buzzwords U.S. public relations specialists — certainly experts in their field — toss out.

    Let us look at the complex situation in Syria. The government of President Bashar Assad is far from democratic, but it did offer stability in the nation. However, demands for democratic reforms were repulsed, and conflicts between the reformers and the government escalated. Reform groups, once united, began to split apart due to ideological differences, spawning the rise of Daesh (an Arabic acronym for the group known in the West as ISIS or ISIL). As the government attempted to repress growing demonstrations, violence continued to escalate.

    Enter the United States, always ready to drop bombs on any nation. In August of 2013, the U.S. claimed that the Syrian government had used chemical weapons against its own citizens, killing 1,400 people. This in itself is an example of U.S. hypocrisy, since Israel uses chemical weapons against the Palestinians, with nary a word of protest from the U.S.

    Those who rely on the corporate media for their news have never heard of this. But they did hear of Syria’s alleged use of such weapons, because that’s what the U.S. wanted them to hear. So a year after this alleged incident, the U.S. started bombing.

    The U.S.has been funding Syrian rebels since at least 2011. But as mentioned above, there are several rebel groups, and the U.S. isn’t particularly discriminating where it lends its support. Additionally, various U.S. agencies don’t appear to consult with each other on the topic. In March of this year, the Los Angeles Times reported: “Syrian militias armed by different parts of the U.S. war machine have begun to fight each other on the plains between the besieged city of Aleppo and the Turkish border.” Again, as long as U.S. arms manufacturers are happy, what else matters? So what if a third of Syrians have had to flee their homes? What difference do nearly half a million deaths of innocent people make?

     

    A history of arming both sides

    Of course, this is nothing new, as a look back at World War II shows.

    In 1917, the U.S. passed the “Trading with the Enemy Act,” which granted the president the power to restrict all trade between the U.S. and its enemies in times of war. On Dec. 13, 1941, less than a week after Pearl Harbor was bombed by the Japanese, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed an amendment to the act. The crux of the amendment is:

    “A general license is hereby granted, licensing any transaction or act proscribed by section 3(a) of The Trading with the Enemy Act, as amended, provided, however, that such transaction or act is authorized by the Secretary of the Treasury by means of regulations, rulings, instructions, licenses or otherwise, pursuant to the Executive order No. 8389, as amended.”

    In his 1983 book, “Trading with the Enemy,” Charles Hingham describes the activities of the major U.S. automobile companies during World War II:

    ”The substantial contribution of these firms to the American war effort in terms of tanks, aircraft components, and other military equipment is widely acknowledged. Less well known are the simultaneous contributions of their foreign subsidiaries to the Axis Powers. In sum, they maximized profits by supplying both sides with the materiel needed to conduct the war.”

    Further:

    “In Germany, for example, General Motors and Ford became an integral part of the Nazi war efforts. GM’s plants in Germany built thousands of bomber and jet fighter propulsion systems for the Luftwaffe at the same time that its American plants produced aircraft engines for the U.S. Army Air Corps … ”

    And lastly:

    “The outbreak of war in September 1939 resulted inevitably in the full conversion by GM and Ford of their Axis plants to the production of military aircraft and trucks. … On the ground, GM and Ford subsidiaries built nearly 90 percent of the armored ‘mule’ 3-ton half-trucks and more than 70 percent of the Reich’s medium and heavy-duty trucks. These vehicles, according to American intelligence reports, served as ‘the backbone of the German Army transportation system’.”

    The U.S. was willing then, as now, to support both sides in its worship of the almighty dollar. In 1963, the U.S. supported Saddam Hussein, a leader of a rebel group opposing the government of Iraq that had previously been supported by the U.S. In 1979, when Russia invaded Afghanistan, the U.S. armed radical extremists who eventually became Al-Qaida, with whom the U.S. has now been at war for years.

     

    No reason for change and hope

    Despite the U.S. Declaration of Independence’s assertion that “all men are created equal” and that everyone has the right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” the U.S. deprives countless millions of people around the world of these basic rights in its quest to enrich the already super-wealthy.

    Will this change? Will the upcoming presidential election bring fruition of the unrealized “hope and change” promise of eight years ago?

    Hardly.

    As Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, the two likely contenders for president from the major parties, only promise more of the same, or worse, there can be no optimism about 2017. The U.S. will continue to arm rebel groups against legitimate governments, resulting in the suffering of innocent people around the world and sky-high profits for U.S. arms manufacturers.

    No one is talking about hope or change this year. There is, sadly, no reason to.

      There is nothing stopping anyone from forming a socialist business whereby the means of production are in the hands of the workers. There are millions of contractors in the United States who operate as sole proprietors. It is only when enormous amounts of capital are necessary that capitalism is necessary. Capitalist businesses flourish because they are the best means to the end, otherwise this is a free market and the Small Business administration – among others – makes it possible for everyone to compete.

      The sad, simple truth is that the PEOPLE of the United States have abandoned themselves and sold out for goods that are the cheapest, most inexpensive ones and those can be made more cheaply with the slave labor wages of the third world. What is necessary is to lower the cost of production in the United States. I object to lowering the minimum wage, so that means lowering the economic impact of the government burden on production.

      * Do away with taxes on all manufactured goods and replace it with a sales tax on all manufactured goods (foreign imports included). Remove this Value Added Tax from all exports to allow them to compete abroad. That’s exactly what Germany and other nations do.

      * Subsidize corporations.by paying for internships and apprenticeships with U.S. tax dollars – on the job training programs – like Germany, Sweden and others do.

      * Emulate China, but instead of subsidizing electricity from CO2 sources, offer to buy solar power cells, wind turbines and ground-based heating and cooling systems for any new factor built in the United States of America.

      The failure of the American Left is that they do not understand economics and want to spend a lot of time talking about what is “fair,” while other nations walk off with our lunch money.

      It’s disappointing that the Jew haters, Naz!s and Holocaust Deniers who frequent this webpage can’t carry on a conversation about the actual topic of the article.

      This article moves from Ancient History to a Work of Fiction. GM and Ford in WWII? How is it arming “the enemy,” in the 1930’s, when war was not declared between Germany and America and would not be until December, 1941? As it is, one cause of WWII was the American refusal to sell oil to China to hinder China’s rape of the Chinese nation. We could have made a bundle, continuing to sell oil and appease China, yet FDR chose morality over profits. This, despite the fact his own family (the Delano side) had made a killing in the Chinese opium markets.

      The author complains of municipal police brutality and homelessness – after 8 years of Democrats holding the White House. What does any of that have to do with “arming both sides in a conflict?”

      The author does name Syria. Fine. Since when are we arming the nation of Syria? “Both sides?” No. The only nation in Syria arming the terrorists in Syria is Syria itself which pours money into ISIL so it will destroy the other rebels and sell back Syria’s own oil to the government of Syria.

      The author simply seeks to vent his spleen. His motive, as D’Souza has pointed out, is to “denigrate America so that the Far Left can re-make America in its own image and its own likeness.” In so doing, the author and his ilk commit the same hypocrisy they are guilty of. They shilled for Vietnam and then Vietnam committed horrible human rights abuses. They now shill for Syria and Iran which are doing the same thing. They aid and abet war criminals around the world – so long as those criminals are opposed to America.

      Below is the Rothschild-Bilderberg Predatory Capitalist Cartel – at the root of the corruption that has taken control of our country, its government, media and commerce. Until that corruption is rooted out and eradicated, America will continue to sicken and, eventually, die.
      These same Rothschilds, that hold controlling interest in the Federal Reserve today, also were patrons of Karl Marx and directed-financed the Bolshevik-Communist “revolution”. That one family name has been connected to more death and horror, over the last 300 years, than ALL other causes combined. The Rothschilds are, of course, Jewish.

          1. Tapatio – Robert Munro – makes up lies about me and my age.

          2. I agree that I am a Zionist – the return of the indigenous Jews is absolutely great.

          3. Munro/tapatio failed to tell you the truth about himself, that he calls Judaism a “disease” and a “cancer” – like Hitler. Li’l Hitler has called for the “ERADICATION of Judaism” which tells us why there needs to be a Jewish nation of Israel – to protect the Jews from Naz@s like tapatio.

                  tapatio, not only are you a Pedophile, you are also apparently a victim of Alzeheimer’s disease. You have never once denied calling Judaism a “disease” or a “cancer” or calling for its “Eradication.” You have called Jews “animals” and “filth” and consider ANY ethnic cleansing of Jews “the defense of Europe.” You have justified the HOLOCAUST and anyone who is a regular to this page knows you have done so.

                  Do I have to take screenshots of all of your posts to prove what I am posting? No. And yes: you do engage in Naz! double speak, pretending that the “ERADICATION of Judaism” does not involve the “ERADICATION of Jews,” yet given how vile and evil you portray them, no one takes your lies seriously.

                  • tapatio

                    Nancy-boy, I have definitely called Judaism a disease. That cult has been a major source of crime for at least 3000 years. It’s primary “gods” are power and money.

                    But, as the eradication of Hitler’s Naz! party and state DID NOT “eradicate” even a smalll fraction of the Naz! Party members, the eradication of the cult that produces most of the most predatory and evil sociopaths in the world need not mean death for any but the criminals of that cult.

                    Just go back to using your little mail-order Filipino bride and stop betraying the country you swore to defend.

                      This is the usual “blood libel” drivel and false allegations. You wish to incite murder because you wish the Jews murdered.

                      When you raised your “109 ‘justifiable’ expulsions of Jews from other lands,” it was easy to show the false allegations against Jews and the attacks for the sole crime that the Jews were Jews. You make one false allegation after the next. Fortunately, they are easily disproven.

                      The only “TRIAOR” is someone like YOU who is a Naz! and has called for the “ERADICATION of Judaism” which IS the “ERADICATION OF THE JEWS.” Your use of fake Talmud quotes from fake Talmud books, your quotations from the fake “Franklin Prophecies” and fake Founding Fathers quotes, your allegations that Jews are criminals for defending themselves, all of these show that you are dishonest and have no intention of ever being honest.

      The United States is controlled by a crime family, and that family’s cronies, that has become the richest family on Earth by profiting from war and chaos for THREE HUNDRED YEARS. They provided financing for BOTH SIDES of the Seven Years War (French and Indian War 1754) and have financed one or both sides of every major conflict since. In many of those wars this family was the instigator of the war.

      • James Wherry

        Typical Robert Munro (tapatio) – “There are evil Jewish bankers, and therefore ALL JEWS should be murdered.”

        • tapatio

          IT WOULD BE NICE IF Major BOY-LOVER WERE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING EVIDENCE OF HIS ACCUSATIONS. BUT, LIKE THE REST OF THE JEWS’ LICK-SPITTLE LACKEYS, HE’S A LIAR.
          ”James Wherry” is a TRAITOR & Zionist hasbara shill. Even though Wherry was an officer in the US military, his first loyalty is obviously to Zionism. Zionists follow the Jewish “Chosen” Master-Race delusion promoted in Judaism’s Talmud.

          Wherry and his little paramour at their “wedding”. Being gay is one thing. Sexual use of someone young enough to be your grandchild is something very different.

          • TecumsehUnfaced

            I can’t say he didn’t deserve that slam. Nice going!

            • tapatio

              Once he and his Jew masters have lost the protection of Washington, he will get what traitors and wannabe pedophiles deserve.

              • TecumsehUnfaced

                Careful! You’re talking revolution, since his Jew masters are large part of the ruling vampire elite.

                • tapatio

                  No sh!t, sherlock! But, without Washington protecting the vermin, it will simply be like shooting rats at the dump. No revolution involved in that, huh?

                  • TecumsehUnfaced

                    Busy little things, aren’t they?

                    • tapatio

                      Yep, and they are LOSERS. That squealing, from their state security minister, demanding that all criticism of their less-than-human cult be stopped and BDS outlawed is PROOF that the Judeo-Nazis are TERRIFIED.

                      I’m a little sorry for the few civilized Jews……..but ONLY a little. Their cult has had 3000 years to clean up its act.

                      • TecumsehUnfaced

                        Well, it may be that the lower class Jews like the other lower class people had as little idea what was going on at the top, and made them just as susceptible to being misled and brainwashed.

                      • tapatio

                        I’m sure that they have been brainwashed. The great majority of sociopaths and narcissists are made, not born. But, just like the “Christian” Zionists, they are creatures with free will. They are not too stupid to know that they are criminals. And, those who aren’t criminals are, for the most part, being far too complacent in the face of crimes that reflect on them. They have made their beds and I think those beds will turn out to be far, far worse than 75 years ago.

                      • James Wherry

                        Your comments make it clear that it is not Zionists, but Jews you hate.

                        As to being “Losers,” I’ll remind you that you people lost WWII and are not making a come back, anytime soon.

                      • tapatio

                        Nancy-boy, my father died (in 1955) of wounds received in the Battle of Britain. I had all three of my American uncles in the US military in Europe and my mother went to England in ’39 to aid in the British war effort, where she met my father. She spent the Blitz on the street, digging kids out of the rubble.

                        Now, a wh0re, like yourself, can’t comprehend civilized morals, ethics or patriotism. But, please try to comprehend that you are a diseased animal, NO LESS SO than Netanyahu or Jacob Rothschild, who you seem to adore. One day, your sort will be dragged through the streets as the treasonous quisling excrement that you are.

                      • James Wherry

                        And a Pedophile like yourself has never served his country in uniform. As I thought.

                      • tapatio

                        Nancy-boy, In 1966 I entered ROTC and, after a visit to Naval OCS, deployed to Vietnam, where I served 22 months on the Mekong Delta. I was wounded in 1970, losing an eye in a argument with the Viet Minh (you office cowards called them Viet “Cong” – a name coined by USAID). There were three of us alive on my PBR when we disengaged, one unwounded.

                        After leaving hospital, since the Navy wasn’t interested in more slightly broken Lieutenants to count paper clips, I became a civilian again.

                        SO, I WOULD SAY, YOU “COMMUNITY AFFAIRS” PROPAGANDA EXCREMENT, I have actually SERVED my country – while filth of your sort merely vomited propaganda (I really doubt that a Tinkerbelle, like you, ever even got near a pacification program, like Phoenix);

          • James Wherry

            The evidence is your own words. Your constant reference to “Jewish bankers” as one of your justifications to “ERADICATE” Jews is all the “evidence” anyone reading this thread needs.

    • James Wherry

      This article moves from Ancient History to a Work of Fiction. GM and Ford in WWII? How is it arming “the enemy,” in the 1930’s, when war was not declared between Germany and America and would not be until December, 1941? As it is, one cause of WWII was the American refusal to sell oil to China to hinder China’s rape of the Chinese nation. We could have made a bundle, continuing to sell oil and appease China, yet FDR chose morality over profits. This, despite the fact his own family (the Delano side) had made a killing in the Chinese opium markets.

      The author complains of municipal police brutality and homelessness – after 8 years of Democrats holding the White House. What does any of that have to do with “arming both sides in a conflict?”

      The author does name Syria. Fine. Since when are we arming the nation of Syria? “Both sides?” No. The only nation in Syria arming the terrorists in Syria is Syria itself which pours money into ISIL so it will destroy the other rebels and sell back Syria’s own oil to the government of Syria.

      The author simply seeks to vent his spleen. His motive, as D’Souza has pointed out, is to “denigrate America so that the Far Left can re-make America in its own image and its own likeness.” In so doing, the author and his ilk commit the same hypocrisy they are guilty of. They shilled for Vietnam and then Vietnam committed horrible human rights abuses. They now shill for Syria and Iran which are doing the same thing. They aid and abet war criminals around the world – so long as those criminals are opposed to America.
