The Military Industrial Complex
“We must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence…by the military industrial complex.” — Eisenhower
The Military Industrial Complex (MIC), a phrase used by outgoing President Dwight Eisenhower when warning of a close relationship between the government and the defense industry, has become a reality. Therefore, resulting in a “War for Profit” scenario.
For example, in an analysis revealing the extent to which companies have profited from the Iraq war, the top 10 contractors secured businesses worth of at least $72 billion between them.
However, none has benefited more from the Military Industrial Complex than KBR. The controversial former subsidiary of Halliburton, which was once run by Dick Cheney. In fact, KBR was awarded at least $39.5 billion in federal contracts related to the Iraq war. Therefore, Dick Cheney became ridiculously rich by initiating war. In other words, hundreds of thousands of people died so Dick Cheney could make a couple bucks.
Today, I can just imagine how badly Trump wants to start a war. First, since his approval ratings are very low, the war would probably bring them up. And Secondly, the amount of money to be made during war time (Perhaps with North Korea) would be astounding.
At first glance, the MIC could be considered a good thing. The military gets assistance from the Defense industry and the private industries get million dollar contracts. However, when millions of people die or become injured for a profit, something is not right. In fact, it’s kind of sick; However, Trump is a nasty, sick, disgusting motherfucker, not to mention a money hungry lunatic. He will do anything to make a dollar – anything.
