An Early Harvest for the Death Industry
It isn’t enough to send the troops to frolic and gambol amongst the poppies in the opium fields of Afghanistan. Oh no, you see the Democratic Party isn’t satisfied with a war in Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia, covertly in Iran, and of course Afghanistan because the Democrats do it better, they do it right. People have been predicting an invasion of Iran for years. Sometimes it was the U.S. other times it was Israel that was on the verge of igniting a war with Iran. But just because it never happened under Bush does not mean that it won’t happen under Obama. We have already been funding criminal elements in Iran to use terrorist tactics, basically we pay them and turn them loose to do what they will so outright war is not all that farfetched, just the next illogical step.
We have heard Hillary Clinton’s tirades against Iran and perhaps there is more to it than Hillary just trying to prove that she is one hundred percent behind Israel despite the lack-luster and timid protests against the Israeli so-called settlements. Time and again we have heard demands from Obama who once said that nothing is off the table when it came to Iran. And like Iraq Iran is a golden opportunity for the murder industry also called the defense industry. Northrup Grumman, Lockheed, and Boeing are all reportedly working on the MOP (massive ordinance penetrator) bomb, a super bunker buster supposedly able to penetrate 200 feet into the earth before detonating and is the most powerful conventional explosive to date. The DOD has asked for 68 million just to speed up the production of MOP,according to Raw Story. If it takes 68 million to just speed up production you can imagine what the total price tag must be. However that may be the real question is why are they speeding up production of the MOP bunker buster? Seen concurrently with Hillary’s rampaging mouth the MOP program takes on ominous overtones. But who knows.
It could just be time for a little payback to Obama contributors in the defense industry, it wouldn’t surprise me. The Pentagon needs companies like Northrup to build their toys for them and it wouldn’t do if the poor dears weren’t making enough of a profit already so throw a few bones, albeit expensive bones, their way to keep them happy and solvent. And of course this gives the defense industry more money to throw at Congress in the form of kickbacks and bribes otherwise known as campaign contributions. It’s a big happy party for everyone! Where’s my cut? Frankly I suspect these super bombs will never be used which of course is a good thing but it does highlight the insanity of such pastimes.
There’s no money for expanding Medicare to everyone which would also create millions of new jobs that actually help people rather than killing them but there’s plenty of moolah for the death industry. The Pentagon asks “Can you build our bomb?” and the defense industry replies “Yes we can.” All you need to do is hire a few loopy physicists to design the concept, a few engineers to make it work, and it’s off to New Mexico for a test so little boys can play with their toys. When I was twelve years old we used to do the same thing. We put firecrackers in model cars to see what would happen when we blew them up. Yes we can! I recall one Halloween night my friend and I put a cherry bomb in a neighbor’s mail box and ran like hell. I heard the explosion and looking over my shoulder I could see the mail box arcing through the air into the yard across the street. It truly was great fun but we eventually outgrew it. Apparently some never do, sort of like Peter Pan.
For me this is the truly scary part regarding our nation, its run by a bunch of juvenile delinquents with the mentality of a twelve-year-old child.
