Wages of war

Ok when do we all wake up to the fact war these days is not about territory, about terrorism, about torture. War is not about peacekeeping or putting things right. War is not even about regime change or power! War is not despite what we believe about oil or minerals.
War is now purely about money. Yep just money. Google the cost of weapons, munitions, ships and planes. Google British made weapons being used in the Yemen and across the globe. Google Teresa May’s recent refusal to stop selling munitions and weapons to Saudi Arabia.
We are now no longer just a ‘nation of shop keepers’, we still are in wholesale and retail but death is our stock and trade. Our products maim and kill.
Why do the government allow this? Because they receive incentives and bribes from companies, or worse they actually own companies that own companies that sell this hell on earth.
So when you see a picture of a child dead through war, think to yourself with all the pride and self worth you can muster ‘we did that!’. For by our allowing our Establishment and government to continue to support this evil we really did do that!
Happy New Year!

Jonesy the Dog of Socialism

I am in my 50's (ok 51), I have life challenges but still continue to be a father, a biker, a socialist and a human being. I fight hate and injustice in any way I can. I am me.
