No Cure For That

The big question today: after the potential PR disaster that was Hiroshima and Nagasaki, how does the United States of America continue to reap the economic benefits of perpetual war?

On July 26, 1947, the National Security Act was signed was signed into law by Harry S. Truman. The act created the CIA, and consolidated power by combining the Department of Defense and the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The NSA also started the Cold War, drove government operations underground, and gave birth that little brat that we should call-- what should we call him? Bobby? Hector? Let's just call him MIC, the military industrial complex.

Like his Irish namesake, the military industrial complex is moody, quick to fight, and a boldfaced liar.

How did this happen? The year is 1947. Truman is sitting in the White House, and in the not too distant rear view mirror of history he can recall the euphoria of dropping the atomic bomb on a country that was already waving the white flag to end the war that was the sequel to the war that would end all wars.

With World War II over, Rosie the riveter traded in her overalls for some fishnets, strapped on her stilettos to receive all of the servicemen who were coming home with the kind of erection that only comes from killing on such a massive scale and one plus one equaled 2.3 on average (thank you very much) and suburbs were sprouting up like weeds all over the country to house all the Wally’s and the Beaver’s that were being delivered by Mr. Stork. Can you say baby boom?

So with all those new mouths to feed, leading economists who believed that the war to end all wars the sequel got us out of the depression and feared that peace would drive us right back into the depression conspired with the media, big business, and the player whose part was getting smaller and smaller in the decision making process - the United States government - to create the myth in the form of Godless Commies. Add a dash of nationalism and presto, quicker than you could say Betty Crocker, we found ourselves in the Cold War.

So the Soviets are sitting over in Moscow saying, "Christianity is stupid. Communism is good. Give up. Share the wealth. We just lost 25 million in World War II; we don't want no stinking Cold War.” We have all these Great fucking Gatsby’s over in the states saying, "What you don't have a Wall Street in Moscow? Shit. That's a pity, because I got one word for you: plastics."

Fast forward to 2010, it's a perpetual war by design. After the war to end all wars the sequel ended, how many years have we gone without the U.S. killing someone somewhere in the name of democracy?
