It's kind of chicken and egg, whether the plunder business or the enemy image comes first. You can't stop the plunder without directly addressing the enemy image, however. As long as people believe the bullshit, it will continue, and the profits will keep flowing. That at any rate is what I believe. I believe one has to say it: Venezuela is not an enemy. Russia and Iran are not enemies. Whether or not you like them or they are bad is not relevant to whether they are enemies, because they are not, and they are not military threats. Saudi and Israel are not allies. They are aggressor states and can no longer receive aid. No one should be receiving military aid. International arms sales must end and the US must lead the way because it's the only one who can. NATO is a scam. US wars are scams. They are out-and-out aggressions. The troops have been used and abused. The fate of the peoples we have attacked has been far worse. The non-state enemies are largely fabrications, 500 million was spent on making fake "Al-Qaeda" videos. The forever wars are destroying any legitimate US interest. All the regional arms buildups are idiotic and short-sighted and US policy must be devoted to scaling back military buildups everywhere. This cannot go on. It can only end in disaster for all (mayhem, bankruptcy, mass death, more countries in ruins, ecological catastrophe), or an even worse disaster for all (nuclear war).
These truths need to be said without camouflage or apology. The time is ripe for it, I believe. Americans can be pulled away from desiring this brink.
