The disgusting politics and economics of war.

The disgusting politics and economics of war.

Politics

They do not care about the suffering they cause. The aim is to win. In order to do this they deliberately target civilians. If they create such misery they will break the will of the fighters.

Their tactics:

terrify

unremitting stress

starvation

disease

casualties.

misery

thirst

So they continuously shell and barrel bomb. They deliberately bomb hospitals, water pumping stations, schools and food convoys. They use chemical warfare to induce panic. They target children.

They do not care about the children, babies or women. If they make the people suffer enough they will turn against the fighters and lose their support for war. They aim to sap their will.

Economics

Whenever there is war someone is making a killing. Desperate people give all they have for the basics of life.

In Syria the warlords are stock-piling food which they are selling at 20x its value to the starving.

Someone is selling arms to both sides.

After the Afghan war US companies were making billions on regeneration programmes. They’ve done it in Vietnam, Korea, Cambodia and Iraq.

Businessmen, politicians and warlords love war. It’s good for personal gain and the economy.

What a bunch of inhumane bastards!!

I'd like to hear from you...
