How To Sell A War

I am one of those tenacious bloggers that when I have a situation in my sights and I refuse to turn away….too many are committed to a situation until a new arises then they forsake the one in pursuit of the later……that ain’t me!

Back before Desert Storm I wrote about what the public needed to watch to see just how they would sell the necessity for war…..no one listened and then they started bitching about going to war in the first place…..I have not ceased in all those years……telling people that they will sell a war to the public for it is easier to commit Americans to fight and die with a positive public opinion.

All I can say is if one pays attention then one will seldom be surprised….especially when it comes to war.

“Every war when it comes, or before it comes, is represented not as a war but as an act of self-defense against a homicidal maniac.”
-George Orwell

Regardless of who leads us, the arms industry, paired with warmongering politicians and their media enablers are always trying to shape the conversation around war and peace in favor of the former.

“There are suckers born every minute”….an war is NO different.
