They wanna have a war to keep us on our knees
They wanna have a war to keep their factories
They wanna have a war to stop us buying Japanese
They wanna have a war to stop Industrial Disease
by Dire Straits
These lyrics came to mind this morning as I read that Steve Bannon, Donald Trumps artistic adviser, was quoted as saying, "America will face a massive new war."
I say to Sir Steven Bannon, why is that? What is there to gain? What have we ever gained from a war that we don't already have? Who is coming to get us? Iran? North Korea? Really?
Dah, hasn't anyone told him that we haven't finished paying for the last War? That's right, the trillion dollar deficit created under George W. Bush's last War of Choice, and now you want another.
At least with George Bush, it was obviously over oil and along with the greed and false sense of power. Still a bad choice, but nonetheless, a reason. A war now with Iran or North Korea is for what? Really? We've proven we can make it without their oil. So what is it?
