Is that this a terrific nation or what?

Is that this a terrific nation or what?

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

“What a marvel is right here!” wrote the chaplain.
“One thing new underneath the solar! A nation, from inside sources alone, carrying
on for over eighteen months essentially the most gigantic struggle of recent instances, ever
growing in its magnitude, but all this whereas rising richer and extra

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

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 simply 5 companies: Boeing, Raytheon, Northrup, Common Dynamics, and Lockheed Martin. Undoubtedly, the Ukraine struggle has despatched quite a lot of enterprise their manner.

Europeans are noticing that People
are cashing in on the Ukraine struggle whereas Europe suffers. As one senior European official put it: 

The actual fact is, in case you have a look at it soberly, the nation that’s most
cashing in on this struggle is the U.S. as a result of they’re promoting extra gasoline and at
larger costs, and since they’re promoting extra weapons. (As reported in The Financial Occasions)

 Is the protection trade sheepish or embarrassed concerning the cash it is making off the struggle between Russia and Ukraine? By no means.
The Ukrainian embassy in DC just lately hosted a reception celebrating the thirty first
anniversary of the founding of the Ukrainian navy. 

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 getting cash. In spite of everything, that is what this
nation’s all about. Nonetheless, I oppose American involvement within the mindless
Ukraine struggle. Cannot America’s enterprise sector make an sincere buck that does not
contain the slaughter or dismemberment of hundreds of Europeans?
