Observations on a world gone mad...                               

The 1.3 million in US military aid to Egypt is not meant to aid Egypt, but merely to get the money to the munitions and arms makers that are selling to Egypt. It's military contractor payments for the US businesses. So, despite laws against supporting a military coup against a democratically-elected government, US corporations need their money, and they will get it.

That's why there are wars everywhere, so rich corporations can make money, while paying little or no taxes. It's really kind of sick. We have wars to create work for the military and the supporting corporations, and the taxpayers pay for all of this, and lose their domestic benefits because “we have no money”.

When will humanity realise we are being taken for a ride by the War Machine? When we are on the verge of extinction?  To understand a major reason why we have wars, follow the money. . .

A massive industry profits off the government-induced fear of terrorism.
