35. IMO

Pretty good analysis, problem is the military industrial complex understands your point also so it will never happen. Today military is optional form of action and every now and then they have to use the military to justify it. Billions of dollars feed the machine, large companies have and still do depend on the military for profits and business is good. Wars are marketed just like everything else, if you have ever heard an F-35 fighter commercial, the grandiose announcer; American is the greatest fighting force in the world and the F-35 leads the way ,Which is complete BS because this aircraft got smoked in Air to Air combat training against all of the Air craft it faced. Not to mention the numerous weapons systems sold to the military that never saw combat and are now obsolete, can you say wasted tax payer dollars.
The actual Soldiers are way down on the priority list, the key is to keep them in a mindset that they are important, but if they were important the why are a good percentage of them of Food stamps? The 1% has rigged the game, you never will see Mittís kids go to war, but you can best believe your kids will be used to paint the foreign lands with blood, for profit. Itís funny that the most gun ho politicians never have a dog in the fight. The moral convictions to fight a War has been kidnapped for contracts and profit.
