War Without End, Amen

Here's the best expose' and analysis I've read of the war without end conspiracy, oops, hidden agenda of the Neocons' promotion of unending war.

Brigadier FB Ali is no kook. He is a retired Pakistani military officer who has made several trenchant contributions to Col.(Ret.) Patrick Lang's blog, Sic Semper Tyrannis. He speaks the truth.

Unfortunately his hope for a rising up and public outcry like we experienced over Vietnam will not occur this time around, at least anytime soon, because we have no draft to take our kids unwillingly off to war. Neocons would block a draft with their ownership of Congress, because they don't want to wake the sleeping dog which is the American public.

The money's the thing wherein they've killed the conscience of the king.

For truly predictive literature on this subject I recommend Rudyard Kipling's poem "Recessional" and Taylor Caldwell's 1970's novel, "Captains and the Kings".
