Today, rising consumer prices such in food and energy sectors that affect every other items have one cause: the Military Industrial Media Complex. Everything else is hoax. Lets look at the figures of the arms race and understand what's going on: The United States — $778 billion China — $252 billion India — $72.9 billion Russia — $61.7 billion United Kingdom — $59.2 billion Saudi Arabia — $57.5 billion [estimated] Germany — $52.8 billion France — $52.7 billion Japan — $49.1 billion South Korea — $45.7 billion These incredible figures depict the fact that a handful of lunatics are hording resources to produce weapons of death rather than expenditure on improving life on earth. The money comes from people's pocket. That's why a revolution against the current corrupt world order is necessary. American War Machine Deep Politics, the CIA Global Drug Connection, and the Road to Afghanistan Peter Dale Scott This provocative, thoroughly researched book explores the covert aspects of U.S. foreign policy. Prominent political analyst Peter Dale Scott marshals compelling evidence to expose the extensive growth of sanctioned but illicit violence in politics and state affairs, especially when related to America's long-standing involvement with the global drug traffic. Beginning with Thailand in the 1950s, Americans have become inured to the CIA's alliances with drug traffickers (and their bankers) to install and sustain right-wing governments. The pattern has repeated itself in Laos, Vietnam, Italy, Mexico, Thailand, Nigeria, Venezuela, Colombia, Peru, Chile, Panama, Honduras, Turkey, Pakistan, and now Afghanistan—to name only those countries dealt with in this book. Scott shows that the relationship of U.S. intelligence operators and agencies to the global drug traffic, and to other international criminal networks, deserves greater attention in the debate over the U.S. presence in Afghanistan. To date, America's government and policies have done more to foster than to curtail the drug trade. The so-called war on terror, and in particular the war in Afghanistan, constitutes only the latest chapter in this disturbing story.
