after 21 years, it’s become painfully clear to many, including to 9-11 victim family members who, after all this time, remain fighting in court for the truth, that U.S. foreign policy and military strategists don’t much care about the unintended consequences or “blowback” to instigate wars.
Dwight D. Eisenhower’s most famous address was his last one to the nation in January of 1961, when he warned America of what he termed “the military-industrial complex.”
“A nuclear war could end us as a civilization and perhaps as a species as well. Why then do we persist in building yet more missiles and bombs?”
This has to end, or America itself will come to an end.
Washington insiders always talk of ‘all options’ being on a metaphorical table…including war, for the president to choose from. They lie. Because the one option that’s never on that imaginary table is peace.
