It is my opinion that our own revolutionary war that led to the American nation,
was started by American businessmen who took advantage of our location to
control and own the wealth produced in the "New World".Our
own civil war was a squabble about who would control the wealth of this nation
and so also the smaller wars with the small countries in this hemisphere. I am joyed and thankful that I live in so powerful a nation that control
so much of the worlds pleasure of wealth. I wince to think that some of that
joy comes from the poverty and sadness of others.
It's the truth, the sacrifice is seldom for country or fellowman, but often
for profit, economic advantage and some times the combo of religion/business.
It's sad that so many fall into the patriotic duty with an honest love of
country and colleagues , but are used as pawns for corporate profits.
I am confused. The worst dictators of the past century or so were Mao, Stalin,
Lenin, and Hitler. They were responsible for killing millions of their own
people while establishing their flawed social and economic systems. None of
them were wealthy businessmen. Who are the wealthy businessmen you refer to and
what wars did they start?
