Is that this a fantastic nation or what?


 Bruce Catton, the good chronicler of the Civil
Battle, started considered one of his books with a quote from a chaplain within the Union Military who was
struck by the truth that the warfare was devastating the South whereas bringing
prosperity to the North.

“What a marvel is right here!” wrote the chaplain.
“One thing new beneath the solar! A nation, from inside assets alone, carrying
on for over eighteen months essentially the most gigantic warfare of contemporary occasions, ever
rising in its magnitude, but all this whereas rising richer and extra
affluent!”

People ought to likewise be astonished.
America is funding an all-out warfare with Russia, a battle that has
left a half million Russians and Ukrainians both lifeless or wounded. And but People
are prospering beneath Bidenomics. It’s an financial miracle! And all this new
wealth has been conjured up by President Joe Biden, a demented legal!

Sadly, America’s rising wealth hasn’t been distributed equitably. I, for instance, have not made a dime off the Ukrainian ruckus despite the truth that I am a registered Democrat. 

The protection contractors, nonetheless, are making out like bandits.  Rob Rooke, writing for a socialist on-line publication, factors out {that a} third of the Protection funds goes to only 5 firms: Boeing, Raytheon, Northrup, Normal Dynamics, and Lockheed Martin. Undoubtedly, the Ukraine warfare has despatched lots of enterprise their means.

Europeans are noticing that People
are taking advantage of the Ukraine warfare whereas Europe suffers. As one senior European official put it: 

The very fact is, if you happen to take a look at it soberly, the nation that’s most
taking advantage of this warfare is the U.S. as a result of they’re promoting extra fuel and at
greater costs, and since they’re promoting extra weapons. (As reported in The Financial Instances)

 Is the protection trade sheepish or embarrassed concerning the cash it is making off the warfare between Russia and Ukraine? By no means.
The Ukrainian embassy in DC not too long ago hosted a reception celebrating the thirty first
anniversary of the founding of the Ukrainian army. 

Who sponsored this gala
occasion? The American protection trade! The logos of those 4 protection
contractors appeared on the friggin’ invitation: 
Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, Pratt & Whitney, and Lockheed
Martin (as reported by Jonathan Guyer in Vox).

The protection trade and its lobbyists are vital contributors to our nation’s elected politicians. Maybe this explains why most of them assist the Ukraine war–both Democrats and Republicans. 

I am all in favor of individuals creating wealth. In spite of everything, that is what this
nation’s all about. Nonetheless, I oppose American involvement within the mindless
Ukraine warfare. Cannot America’s enterprise sector make an trustworthy buck that does not
contain the slaughter or dismemberment of 1000’s of Europeans?
