Back in 2003 and 2004, the United States shipped a little spending cash over to the Iraqi government to help “stimulate the economy.” Our C-130 transport planes carried over 360 tons of $100 bills.
Yeah, you read that correctly ... hundreds of pallets containing over $10 billion thrown at a problem simply because the military said it was necessary to fight their war on terror. Billions of dollars with absolutely no accountability, no insight, no foresight, and no oversight.
The War on Terror has been a wonderful economics lesson for aspiring capitalists. If you want to justify endless spending and have no one to answer to, just declare war. It's that simple.
Convince the public that we need to play Superman, that we need to fight a never ending battle for truth, justice, and the American spend-and-kill way, so that we can protect our shores from enemies who would otherwise assault our grandparents, burn down our homes, steal our women, kick our dogs and stampede our cattle. Declare war on a faceless (but oh so scary) assailant and get all the funding you want.
