This question is actually quite simple to answer. Conspiracy theorists (yes, that’s us folks) will tell you that DARPA drives the engines of the military through farming out its “wish list” to private corporations to compete for the contract to build the desired technology. This is true. DARPA is well known for funding multiple initial projects and then further funding the winner. Often these “winners” create corporations that are given military contracts that pay the corporation to make the “war device” and the shareholders of the company glean the profits. The Internet, Cisco Systems, Google, and Facebook are all inventions of DARPA.
And we hardly have to mention the cost over-runs on every military contract. These contracts, paid for by American tax payers, are for hundreds of billions of dollars and the corporation is allowed and encouraged to make a big profit so the interwoven Corporate Warlords get their cut of the pie. When Rumsfeld audited the 7 trillion dollar Pentagon budget, 2.3 was missing. This is typical and still, to date, it hasn’t been “found.”
Even worse than the Corporate Warlord’s profits is the fact that every one of the top military contractors does business in international markets. This means that every military contract is, will be, or can be shared with other nations, including the very “enemies” for which the war-device is produced. Transnational Corporate Warlords are selling the same “military secrets” to our enemies. Just read the web sites of any top military contractor where they proudly proclaim their international business in military devices. These transnational corporations are also using their influence to destabilize markets, economies, countries and currencies to create new business. Once DARPA gets the militarized version of the invention, the source code usually is made public. This may seem crazy, but it always feeds the enemy our new weapon designs so that they can keep up the appearance of a “weapons race.”
Transnational corporations are dismantling America through political and military manipulation of the economy and the Corporate and Banking Warlords are having a party amidst the seeming chaos and confusion. These warlords know full well that the CIA manipulates currency as a continuing war. The International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, the International Bank of Settlements advance the causes of these Corporate Warlords. Destabilizing countries creates the need for international intervention.
The military industrial complex created the War on Terror and calls it the “long, soft war” because it will never end. The pronouncement of the War on Terror was the declaration of the overthrowing of American Democracy by warlord oligarchy. Only a few people benefit from this war and often the politicians who declare the “New World Order” take up positions in corporations that profit from war. Former presidents and prime ministers become Corporate Warlords and make a fortune.
