Washingdung (IP) - Russia has become the Bush administration's next prospect for war and profits as the hope for an extended period of war in Iraq begins to fade. The insatiable appetite that the military industrial complex has for war has to be maintained somehow and placing missiles behind what once was the iron curtain promises to rekindle the cold war all over again.
Bush was reminded that Russia is the only power on earth capable of destroying the USA in under 30 minutes and his reply was simply that we cannot revert back to the days between the end of the cold war and 9-11 which threatened to have a negative impact on the profit margins of military contractors. He says there is more to life than living peacefully. Living peacefully would affect his corporate handler's bottom line and he will have no part of that. Haliburton and the Carlisle Group are like hungry children and they must be fed.
Bush says that United States corporate profits were not the only ones who would stand to gain. Russian military contractors would also benefit from this scheme as will those of all other nations who participate.
He also reminded reporters that during times of peace too many young men join the ranks of the unemployed and this created too large of an underclass. Sending young men off to war and prison prevents the growing underclasses from gathering too much rebellious steam.
He said that folks should not worry too much about the friction created by any future Russian / American conflict because the whole thing was well planned and all decisions had the tacit approval of both parties and always involved a nudge and a wink - if you know what I mean.
