The recent attack on the Saudi oil industry proved that the West has not developed an adequate response to Iranian precision missiles, slow moving cruise missiles or drone technology.

---neither the cruise missiles nor the drones were detected and no attempt was made to intercept them before the attack. Which really means that despite the Saudis’ multi- billion dollar investment in Western weaponry and air defense systems, their sky is far from protected---

---it explains why Israel wants America and NATO to attack Iran on its behalf. It may explain why Israel might consider doing whatever it can to provoke such a conflict-- everything from intensive Lobby pressure to possible false flag operations.

The US military $Trillion budget is a fraudulent racket. Russia, China and even Iran have better technology at a fraction of the cost. No wonder the US military cannot even win a war against a third rate military power. It is good at killing millions of innocent civilians though---as Obama bragged.

Indeed - Millions of people have been misled regarding the causes and consequences of 9/11. September 11 2001 opens up an era of crisis, upheaval and militarization of American society.

Definitely a fraudulent racket. The MIC can produce buggy tech laden armaments and get paid - laughing all the way to their bank. Instead of there being claw back provisions for crappy malfeasant criminal weapon system deliveries, they extract more fiat from the congress.

Thanks David for this post and your care. Military establishment has a lot of power and one CEO retired last year with $300,000,000 pension which is not fair for working class.

There are differences. USA is in Persian Gulf for the money. It is milking Saudi and UAE governments selling them equipment which their soldiers cannot operate.

I wonder WHY wit sales of billions of dollars of military equipment USA economy is not doing better. It should.

Future in West Asia will be eventful and many innocent people will be killed, among them children, elderly, and ill individuals.

Simply shows the result of unregulated corporate socialism. First, there is no accounting for where the money is and what it is doing, in fact, what goes unaccounted for annually would still be more than any other nation in the World spends on "military". Secondly, there is little or no concern about the quality of product of those we do business with. For example, look at Boeing who has airplanes literally falling out of the sky. Thirdly, there is little or no concern over controlling costs. An example is where a contractor who "won a bid" for constructing igniter units for Tomahawk missiles doesn't meet the deadline for completion of that contract so is given additional money for 7 years to complete it. Fourthly, how "save" were we on 9/11?

Now we know a major reason the Presstitute Media Propagandists (PMP) are smearing and stifling Tulsi Gabbard. She is the only candidate running who gives us a chance of at least slowing down this major theft of the American Dream as monies taken from the MIC budget would not only keep us safe, but healthy, educated, and live in better infrastructure.
