Reflections on the Military/Industrial Complex - Submitted by Mike Endres

Great pictures on this site....


And - never forget that the military needs wars. That's the way it trains people to fight. No wars, lousy war fighting ability. That's one reason we fought in Korea, Vietnam, Grenada, Panama, Iraq and now Afghanistan. (WWII was a different kind of fight). I know, you just think the stupid government just didn't learn anything in Korea or Vietnam? Wrong. The government and the military needs to fight something, somewhere in order to test new equipment, tactical methods, soldier training and such with real shoot-em-up weapons to keep an edge on the rest of the world in war fighting ability. Not to mention they need bad guys and enemies to keep the U.S.population in line, worried, agitated and "patriotic".
