Recently, I posted a list of wars fought by the US military. What I didn’t include were the many more military threats intended to force trade with US corporations or to protect our corporate interests overseas. That list would be many times longer.
In search of resources and markets for our corporate products, we have forced our way into nations all over the world – from Aregentina to Zaire. And now that we have created the so-called global marketplace, we use the threat of military action to protect our corporate investments anywhere in the world.
That being the case, next time you hear the media refer to a foreign policy or a military deployment as necessary to protect American interests, ask yourself the following questions:
When did we amend the US Constitution to require our military to protect greedy corporations? What is the real reason behind the Teapublican push to replace government agencies with for-profit corporations under the label of “privatization”? Who is really running our government?
