All Nations Have War Economies, Even Canada
By Sandford Tuey – Canada
Planet Earth has been at war since recorded human history and most likely long before. Will humanity ever be able to wean itself off of such hostilities? All countries worldwide have war economies producing more and more deadly weapons to kill their nation’s perceived enemies as efficiently as possible. All these national military weapon manufacturers and government Defense departments focus on murdering humans after their politicians and generals decide to attack or declare war against other nations or terrorist groups. Why has humanity need to war so often? Because war is very profitable!
Each country’s military industrial complex requires that these corporations earn an annual profit or millions of employees would have to be laid off. The only way to keep a world depression from happening is to use up the bombs and bullets stockpiling on their shelves. If there are no wars/conflicts, it creates a major negative effect on their nation’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). That is the reason military personnel see most situations as a reason to use force. Possibly causing a worldwide depression and also increasing the unemployed ranks, adding more of financial burden on the governments and tax payers and go to war. The shareholders of these weapon producers could lose their investments and taxes governments depend on to function. A frightening scenario for politicians, economists and the war economies!
If millions of new unemployed are added to the already unemployed ranks and the alleged increase in refugees & migrants can cause countries to become unstable and desperate to get these people back to work quickly. Many times nations decided to solve this problem by providing funds to build up their military force’s weapons, equipment and improve their ability to wage war. Too many unemployed citizens sometime become a slippery slope into world wars. Wars are very profitable for the winning nations and the corporations that support such violence. Therefore, there is incentive to be able to strike first, conduct war faster than anyone else. That is why most nations do not declare war prior to starting one.
Governments usually build up their weapon stocks and increase the numbers of fighter bomber jets, warships, tanks and arm more military personnel. Have you noticed that Canada and many other countries have been increasing their ability to conduct war? The USA government is demanding allies increase the amount of money they allocate to their militaries. Military assets are positioning at vital chokepoints around the world and recruiting more. The buildup of forces and sending them into areas that they can inflict damage to perceived enemy nations is like a strategic game of Chess. If you knew where our NATO militaries are, there seems to be an endgame underway. Is this a sign of the next coming conflict?
Earth’s war economy is one of the most profitable industries as long as the shelves of bombs and bullets are used up around every ten years. That is why humans cause wars continually and most likely will never stop, unless the weapon manufacturers produce other goods then ones that kill. When will a nation dare to ‘lower their shields’ and abandon the economic concept of war to help stop this endless cycle? To show the world that war can end and I hope one day, mankind will come to its senses and redirect the Trillions of tax dollars towards peace and helping our fellow humans!
