Forum Post: War is the Corporate Control at it's Deadliest and most Destructive

From the book America's War Against Iraqi Civilians by Chris Hedges.

The vanquished know war. They see through the empty jingoism of those who use the abstract words of "glory," "honor," and "patriotism" to mask the cries of the wounded, the brutal killing, war profiteering, and chest pounding grief.

They know the lies the "victors" often do not acknowledge, the lies covered up in stately war memorials and mythic war narratives, filled with stories of comradeship. They know the lies that permeate the thick, self-important memoirs by amoral statesmen who make wars but do not know war. The vanquished know the essence of war - death. They grasp that war is necrophilia. They see that war is almost a state of pure sin, with its goals of hatred and destruction. They know how war fosters alienation, leads inevitably to nihilism, and is turning away from the sanctity and preservation of life.

All other narratives about war too easily fall prey to the allure and seductiveness of violence as well as the attraction to the godlike power that comes with the license to kill without impunity.

The Lieber Code is the strategy behind the social psyops using media info.

Art. 150.

Civil war is war between two or more portions of a country or state, each contending for the mastery of the whole, and each claiming to be the legitimate government. The term is also sometimes applied to war of rebellion, when the rebellious provinces or portions of the state are contiguous to those containing the seat of government.

The American psyops has created classes replacing state boundaries and nothing to do with activismof legal capacity any longer.

I can see that in the way media portrays us in films and sitcoms. Like image association creating class automatically. When children learn this, they don't even know they know it. OMG!

Hey, you are catching on! The elite have created a class war. ows is the revolutionary class, but they are dysfunctional and refuse to emply legal process that defends the rights they use in protest.

Cognitively inconsistent. And, very likely a social activist infiltration using socialistic ideals RATHER than law, which will work.

Hedges nails it. He really does.

After reading 2 of his books and many articles and interviews, he's moved up to my favorite author as well as someone I truly admire and respect.

Not Leaving Afghanistan. New troop level proposals for beyond 2014. More info in link below.

How many private contractor mercenaries do you think they'll have? As many as they have now? No one really talks much about the privatized forces that get paid better than the troops.
