The military industrial complex is renowned for influencing politicians. At the same time is war one of the best suppliers of those who are entitled to welfare. The combination of the warfare state and the welfare state is renowned.
If we look where the politicians came from then we see something really interesting. The politicians sending the youth to the battle ground. We see people from law and business degree. Not really the combat experience we are looking for.
They all have strong ties with the financial industry. BAnks, insurance companies and so on. They are the ones making the profits on the war. Unfortunately, they are not sending their own family to the battleground.
This is one of the reasons that the wars are going so desperately. Desperately because the west has lost all wars since the Second World War.
This is very likely due to the fact that most wars are not started to be ended soon. What is better for the military industrial complex than a long-lasting war? A war which is creating nice and stable profits? If you are like me you simply read the Profitable War Report.
