America is a war Nation: Part 1 of 2


The Business of America Is War:  There is a new normal in America: our government may shut down, but our wars continue.  Congress may not be able to pass a budget, but the U.S. military can still launch commando raids in Libya and Somalia, the Afghan War can still be  prosecuted,

 Italy can be  garrisoned by American troops (putting the “empire” back in Rome), Africa can be used as an  imperial playground (as in the late nineteenth century “ scramble for Africa,” but with the U.S. and China doing the scrambling this time around), and the military-industrial complex can still  dominate the world’s arms trade.

America: Living to fight as it appears or Fighting to Live as we are told?
