Editor’s Note: There is really nothing new or surprising in this article. At least not for the readers of RiseUpTimes.org. The charts are interesting though, Just proof what has already been pointed out in several other articles online, that the military industrial complex corporations (and their shareholders) who have a stranglehold on the government don’t care who gets killed, as long as they get money $$$$$. As Halloween approaches, it would be easy to dredge up Dracula images that represent them. Blood-thirsty. They only see it as being $$$$ thirsty. Clearly, as the wars continue, they don’t care who gets killed. Somehow, it is not even on their moral radar. One of reminded of the Nazi commanders of death camps who went home to their “normal” family lives every night.
Remember the 99% and the 1%? Well, the CEOs of Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumann and Boeing are the .01% of the 1% in wealth, with many other arms manufacturers’ CEOs not far behind in the wealth department. Boeing, by the way, makes killer drones and has huge drone contracts.
But who do we vote for, if we even vote? Either party is as bad as the other on Endless War.
