If 9/11 Attacks Can Spark Trillions in War Spending, Asks Ocasio-Cortez, Why Can’t US Find Funding for Puerto Rico ‘Marshall Plan’?
"The U.S. treats Puerto Ricans as second class citizens," notes the ACLU. "Thousands of lives were lost because of it."
Some honest answers –
First of all the people of Puerto Rico are people of color who have
also tried to defy the US in seeking statehood.
Secondly, because there are so many disasters and so many more to come
that they will no longer consider these “rescues” – (See: Katrina)
Third, because the profits from the false flag operation 9/11 went into the pockets
of Wealthy - and that includes the wars which followed.
In the case of Puerto Rico, it’s its exploitation of labor and natural resources which
create profits for Elites.
Additionally, Oligarchs who control US wealth generally tend to think of the wealth
of the nation as something which belongs to them and they don’t want it depleted
by assistance to Puerto Rico. They likely also gave their approval to selling Puerto
Rico debt out and to the new financial demands on citizens there to pay the debts,
to austerity programs, lowering of minimum wage, damage to public education, etal.
