Permanent War and its effects

A very interesting idea...permanent war. It allows us to be continually "armed and dangerous"...allows our corporate friends like Boeing, McDonnell Douglass, and Lockheed Martin to continue churning out the weapons of destruction, allows companies like Bechtel, Halliburton, Vinnell, Kellogg Brown and Root, Titan, and others, to continue getting monumental no-bid contracts to hawk their wares.

Better, by far, than the Cold War...where we had an actual "enemy" who we could pursue, and checkmate, but who would be capable of being scrutinized.

Shadowy figures...."chatter"...fear factors....hits coming out of nowhere (!)...What better arrangement could a dictator want?
