If this isn't disinformation, then it's 100% ignorance.
One poster insisted that WE is just a "rhetorical frame." The use of a particular framing--whether rhetorical or not--is intended to set up consensus.
Just who is it that is getting into bed? Is it you or me? Of course, if you are in the military, you might identify with such a frame.
And who is it that will benefit from ARMS deals with the Saudi? Is it the average American citizen or the war profiteers and war criminals and other misfits who have climbed to the top of the U.S. hierarchy due to owning the morals of sociopaths?
STOP conflating what's done by specific interests for their own purposes with the alleged will (and to the alleged benefit) of the American people.
The nation's infrastructure is collapsing.
Family after family is fighting Fracking operators poisoning their water, or as is the case in the city of Flint, a city manager setting them up for a "sacrifice zone."
Public schools are closing.
Close to half of U.S. citizens live paycheck to paycheck.
Wages have NOT kept up with the cost of living.
My point is that for most people, their quality of life has been REDUCED since 911. So this CANARD that what's good for weapons' contractors somehow comports with benefits to the American people, at large, is just that.
It's phony. And the type of argument meant to prop up the military industrial complex by pimping the argument that its interests are also those of the nation's citizens.
