The Military Industrial Complex Makes Hundreds Of Billions But Needs A Military Draft In The U.S.

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The End of the American Dream under the title: The Military Industrial Complex Is Making Hundreds Of Billions Of Dollars, And They Need A Military Draft In The U.S. To Take Things To The Next Level

It would be difficult to overstate the importance of the Military Industrial Complex to our society.  It employs millions of people, and it brings in hundreds of billions of dollars each year.  The Military Industrial Complex has always been one of the central pillars of our economy, and these days business is booming thanks to the war in Ukraine and the possibility of a war with China.

Needless to say, those who run the Military Industrial Complex want the gravy train to continue, and so politicians who are pro-war are showered with campaign contributions.  In both major parties, politicians who are pro-war greatly outnumber those who are anti-war, and that is not likely to change any time soon.

Smedley D. Butler fought in four major conflicts, and in 1935 he astutely observed that “war is a racket”

Of course, the statements that he made back then are even more true today.

If the Military Industrial Complex suddenly disappeared, it would leave a giant, gaping hole in our economy that would be extremely difficult to fill.  In an excellent piece that he posted earlier this week, Richard C. Cook shared some numbers about the Military Industrial Complex that are absolutely astounding

In the entire history of the world, we have never seen anything quite like this.

And the Military Industrial Complex absolutely loves Joe Biden, because he has promised to keep the war in Ukraine going “for as long as it takes”

Unfortunately, there is a problem.

The Ukrainians are running out of warm bodies.

They have literally been grabbing men off the streets and throwing them into vans, but we didn’t care because it wasn’t our sons who were being forced to go to war.

Many Americans cheered when the Ukrainians began their ill-fated “counter-offensive”, but it turned out to be a disaster.

A senior U.S. intel official recently admitted to journalist Seymour Hersh that Ukraine has suffered approximately 75,000 casualties during this counter-offensive…

On many battlefields in Ukraine, there are unburied dead bodies just lying around all over the place.

The Russians have been mowing down wave after wave of Ukrainian men, and Hersh was told that there “is no Ukrainian offensive anymore”

Where do we go from here?

The Military Industrial Complex certainly does not want this conflict to end, and Joe Biden has no intention of backing down.

So more warm bodies will be needed.

That is one of the reasons why there has been so much chatter about bringing back the draft here in the United States.

Recruitment has been way down in recent years, but our leaders desperately want to win this war with Russia and they also want to be ready to fight a war with China over Taiwan.

And so the stage is being set to draft young American boys and young American girls into military service…

Do you want your children to be fed into a meat grinder on the other side of the globe?

If not, it is time to stand up and say something.

Even now, large numbers of Americans are getting hurt fighting in Ukraine, and many of them are being treated at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany

It appears to be just a matter of time before we find ourselves in a full-blown shooting war with Russia because both sides just continue to escalate matters.

This week, it was reported that Russia will increase defense spending by nearly 70 percent in 2024…

Many Americans consider the Russians to be just like the Nazis, but it turns out that the Russians also consider us to be just like the Nazis

If the Nazis were around today, what would we do to them?

Needless to say, our leaders would be determined to utterly destroy them.

Russian leaders would feel the same way.

And so this makes pace almost impossible.

Here in the Western world, our leaders will never be satisfied until Putin is gone and the nation of Russia is broken up into lots of little pieces.

On the other side, there is constant talk on Russian television about how the conflict in Ukraine will inevitably spark a global nuclear war.  So it should deeply alarm all of us that the Russians recently conducted large-scale nuclear combat drills

We need to pull back from the brink before it is too late.

But our leaders won’t do that.

They don’t want to upset the Military Industrial Complex.

Unfortunately, we could also soon find ourselves in a war with China.

In fact, not too long ago a four-star general actually predicted that we would be at war with China in 2025

The moment that China invades Taiwan, there will be a war between our two nations.

So in the not-too-distant future, we could literally be fighting Russia and China at the same time.

And as I have been warning my readers for years, that is a really, really bad idea.

But it doesn’t matter what you or I think.

The Military Industrial Complex wants to make even more money, and our politicians want to keep the campaign contributions rolling in.

So we will continue to speed toward a date with the unthinkable as the fate of our society hangs in the balance.
