SaLuSa tells us that “wars have been perpetuated as a deliberate means of keeping you in fear and lining the coffers of those who always make fortunes from them. Now you know why there is no serious intent to bring world peace into being.” (SaLuSa, April 17, 2009.)
In the following short article, Paul Craig Roberts looks at war as a lucrative enterprise.
I think that the view that a defensive posture is really necessary is a piece of conditioning that’s about as deep as it gets. But the reality seems to be that we’ve been sold a bill of goods. Matthew has said that neither China or Russia are interested in war, but what may be hard for us to encounter is that our own militaries, which are supposed to be defenders of freedom, etc., are interested in war.
Here are some passages from spirit and galactic teachers on the fact that neither China nor Russia want war:
“Other countries have recognised the path being trod [by the Illuminati], and Russia in particular having been broken apart by insidious interference in their affairs, [has] risen up again with an agenda to create a peaceful world.” (Diane of Sirius, Aug. 6, 2008.)
“Notice how the Chinese leaders are making concessions to the West, and that they are using their power to prevent the Illuminati from making further footholds in the East. They are a part of a growing movement to stabilise the world, and root out the influences that have tried to lead you into another war scenario.” (SaLuSa, Jan. 21, 2011.)
How difficult it is for us to realize that it’s we who are interested in war.
“War uber alles”: The Pentagon Needs Some More Wars
By Paul Craig Roberts

The United States government cannot get enough of war. With Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi’s regime falling to a rebelling population, CNN reports that a Pentagon spokesman said that the U.S. is looking at all options from the military side.
Allegedly, the Pentagon, which is responsible for one million dead Iraqis and an unknown number of dead Afghans and Pakistanis, is concerned about the deaths of 1,000 Libyan protesters.
While the Pentagon tries to figure out how to get involved in the Libyan revolt, the commander of U.S. forces in the Pacific is developing new battle plans to take on China in her home territory. Four-star Admiral Robert Willard thinks the U.S. should be able to whip China in its own coastal waters.
The admiral thinks one way to do this is to add U.S. Marines to his force structure so that the U.S. can eject Chinese forces from disputed islands in the East and South China seas.
It is not the U.S. who is disputing the islands, but if there is a chance for war anywhere, the admiral wants to make sure we are not left out.
The admiral also hopes to develop military ties with India and add that country to his clout. India, the admiral says, “is a natural partner of the United States” and “is crucial to America’s 21st-century strategy of balancing China.” The U.S. is going to seduce the Indians by selling them advanced aircraft.
If the plan works out, we will have India in NATO helping us to occupy Pakistan and presenting China with the possibility of a two-front war.
The Pentagon needs some more wars so there can be some more “reconstruction.”
Reconstruction is very lucrative, especially as Washington has privatized so many of the projects, thus turning over to well-placed friends many opportunities to loot. Considering all the money that has been spent, one searches hard to find completed projects. The just released report from the Commission on Wartime Contracting can’t say exactly how much of the $200,000 million in Afghan “reconstruction” disappeared in criminal behavior and blatant corruption, but $12,000 million alone was lost to “overt fraud.”
War makes money for the politically connected. While the flag-waving population remains proud of the service of their sons, brothers, husbands, fathers, cousins, wives, mothers and daughters, the smart boys who got the fireworks started are rolling in the mega-millions.
As General Smedley Butler told the jingoistic American population, to no avail, “war is a racket.” As long as the American population remains proud that their relatives serve as cannon fodder for the military/security complex, war will remain a racket.
