Twenty-one-plus years in Afghanistan reinforces what President Trump said about the ‘military-industrial complex’- we could have won that war in Year One, been out and back home

Sadly, the military brass at the Pentagon- which includes the generals and perhaps many of the colonels- don’t want anyone to hear this. Seldom do generals and colonels fight in the field whereas lieutenant-colonels and lower ranks do. Thus, the Pentagon brass, the civilian military leaders, and the lobbyists all feed at the trough while America’s war fighters typically don’t. They bears the wounds and scars of war, and their families bear theirs with them whereas the big muckety-mucks fill their bank accounts with the wave of a finger in one direction or another.

SUMMER SESSION 2020

BLOG POST #3,604 AT THE AICP-END

52 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020

It’s no secret the military-industrial complex is real…

Pasadena, CA 91101, 09-12-2020 Saturday:  Apparently this past Labor Day Monday, President Donald J. Trump made some comments while speaking to an audience that the U.S. military leadership found deeply upsetting, causing them tremors, stomach upsets, and hair loss, all in the span of a matter of several minutes.  God forbid the military leadership should be despondent, dejected, or gloomy.  Ah, well, the president made the comment that the enlisted men and women (as well as many officers) would support Trump because he was bringing them home rather than frittering them away to fight wars around the revolving planet, conflicts for which, no real purpose exists and for which, no exit strategy is planned once boots hit the ground and bombs start dropping from the clouds.  This, of course, set off the upper leadership of the military but such is life.    

What President Trump is reported to have said is that ‘top Pentagon brass want to keep wars going in order to keep defense contractors ‘happy.’  Readers, what did he say that was incorrect or wrong?  President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned about the ‘military-industrial complex’ in his farewell address to the nation and President Ronald Reagan also warned of such a Deep State cabal as the sycophantic relationship between the Pentagon and the contractors who supply the nation’s armed forces its arms and ammunition.  In exchange, our sons and daughters supply the limbs and the blood.   

There is NO DOUBT whatsoever in my mind that this is not so no more than I doubt that most politicians enrich themselves at the teats of the taxpayers and do so without ever having to pay a price for a crime that if we in the private sector did it would be labeled ‘insider trading’ or ‘forehand knowledge obtained illegally’ and we’d go to prison- federal prison. 

This like many other things is what’s wrong in Washington, D.C.  Since the end of World War II, we haven’t truly ever won a war.  Sure, we kicked Saddam Hussein’s butt in 1991 and our military came home to riotous applause and tickertape parades because we lost both the Korean War- which is still on to this day- as well as the Vietnam War.[i]  Both wars were winnable but we did not settle for victory, we just gave up and came home- despite the military members killed, wounded, or missing in action.

When I see this commercials on TV for Wounded Warriors, that is it in a nutshell.  No one is denying these wounded men and women did not serve with honor; no, the problem is, why were they sent to crap-hole places such as the Middle East where nothing ever changes except on a blue moon here and there and then reverts back to the start.  Why are they sent into the dark heart of Africa[ii] or elsewhere in the world without an express purpose, a set determination of what victory is and when we will withdraw from the conflict, or a good reason as to WHY we are gambling with their lives?

When the Russians fight military actions abroad, they typically send in Chechen thugs to do the dirty work and to give Moscow plausible deniability just like when some bottom-feeding loser poisons someone on Vladimir Putin’s behalf.  The Chi-Coms and the North Koreans don’t send their soldiers to engage in fruitless wars; no, the Chi-Coms use their vast resources of American money to assemble their military to unbeatable strength while the United States continually fritters away its most valuable resources, its young people and its wealth.[iii]

There is no doubt that investing in U.S. and allied defense contractors is not a vast money-making scheme.  You seldom see any of the major companies involved in providing the tools of war to the Pentagon going ‘belly up;’ no, millions of retirement accounts across the country and around the world are invested- heavily- in these companies and why would they not be?  My business and my family sure the hell are.  Unlike investing in some pot company start-up, these companies are golden, solid, and well worth the investment. 

Sadly, the military brass at the Pentagon- which includes the generals and perhaps many of the colonels- don’t want anyone to hear this.  Seldom do generals and colonels fight in the field whereas lieutenant-colonels and lower ranks do.  Thus, the Pentagon brass, the civilian military leaders, and the lobbyists all feed at the trough while America’s war fighters typically don’t.  They bears the wounds and scars of war, and their families bear theirs with them whereas the big muckety-mucks fill their bank accounts with the wave of a finger in one direction or another.  

Friends, it requires not even an associates degree in education to understand that the military-industrial complex is real and one of the reasons we now have the U.S. Space Force is that in making it a REAL entity, President Trump removed a vast black hole down which, billions and billions of U.S. taxpayers dollars stopped flowing, into God knows where and into what pockets, by making them a part of the U.S. military’s annual budget.  Thanks to the president, we can now ALL see this which should mean NO more $500 hammers of $2,000 commodes.[iv]

I just hope the military-industrial complex does not ‘get even’ with our commander-in-chief.  Let us not forget John Fitzgerald Kennedy, a man who did not want to fight a war in Vietnam and who ended up fighting against the military-industrial complex…

Join me tomorrow.  We’ll wrap it up then by discussing ‘critical race theory.’  Heil liberalism!

In 2006, the wild and wooly second go-round Flamin’ Groovies released a ‘best of compilation,’ the superb, “At Full Speed—the Complete Sire Recordings 1976-1979.”  As you know, following the departure of Tim Lynch and Roy Loney, the band reformed with new members, most notably vocalist, Chris Wilson.  This album offers the music the band recorded on several albums, which is reason enough for you to visit Amazon.com where you can pick it up in the format, the condition, and the price that works best for you—you will be glad you did.

FOOTNOTES:


[i] Regarding the Korean War, the United States was a member of the combined United Nations military forces- the only time such an alliance has ever existed so that should tell you the intrinsic worthlessness of the world body- and we could have beaten not only the North Koreans but also their Chi-Com and Soviet backers.  Field Marshal Douglas MacArthur wanted to nuke the Chi-Coms and President Harry S. Truman and the UN were too timid to do it.  We could have beaten both the USSR and the Chi-Coms and ushered in decades of peace.  There would be no gulags, no human rights abuses, no criminal behavior in any of these three countries. As for Vietnam, here’s what any soldier who served there will tell you: ‘We won every battle but lost the war.’  This occurred because the leadership at the time did NOT believe in holding conquered territory, they believed in body counts and so followed the NVA and the Vietcong all over the map trying to kill them, inflating the counts, and having to fight for the same territory over and over and over.  We could have won it in a year or two.

[ii] Not long after Trump became president, we had four U.S. Special Forces soldiers killed in, I believe, the African nation of Mali, something that shocked everyone including President Trump- WHY the f**k were we there?  Because stuff goes on in the background all the time that very few know about including presidents.

[iii] This is among the biggest scandals in that until the American people elected Trump to lead them, the trade imbalance was enriching China to the point they didn’t have to pay for their military, WE were paying for it, which was a crime in itself, one previous administrations enabled.  They also stole our military R & D, which is a crime in itself, too.  Glad we have been able to begin disengaging ourselves from this crappy strategy. 

[iv] We’ve always heard about ‘$1,000 screwdrivers and the like which everyone laughed at but it’s true, it’s the way the U.S. military and the government conceals what it’s actually spending money on.  In this time of one resolution after another every few months instead of annual budgets, it’s easy to sew how money vanishes, money for which, we should have a full accounting.

I began my culinary career at age 10 working under my father, Chef Fritz, Sr., at his German restaurant in southern California. I moved to Bakersfield in 1982, went to work at one of the hotels, and remained there for the next 24 years prior to retiring. Now, I spend my time writing culinary articles for various magazines enjoying the good life. I’ve dedicated my entire lifetime to promoting the food service industry and in educating the young folks. Up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist, Simone, created the following portrayals that you will see here and at the secondary blog over the course of the week. We have gone from ancient photos to facsimiles now due to the craziness infecting the greater society around us so you can say it is for security reasons. I have spent my entire life working in professional food service and am proud of that service. I currently work and live in the South Land.
