Arms of all calibers, arms of mass destruction must have a use-value, otherwise the above would be possible. Nobody, except criminal bankers and their innocent victims, would buy something which has no use-value at all. Also only mentally deranged sub-humans, totally alienated capitalist war mongers, would produce tons and tons of mortal. lethal and fatal weapons just to kill and maim thousands and thousands of innocent, indefenseless hospital patients, women and children. All this just to conquer and exploit their natural and human resources, to convert themselves into capital owners, privileged class sectors and reckless power hungry elites, who with an iron fist rule over the unidimensional lonely crowds.
If this global bellicose status quo would continue, the last hopeful daydreams and rays of culture and civilization, which we have known until now, will be darkened by "the day after", which would usher in the age of "after people".
And what is the use-value of modern arms, of military merchandise? Who, as a result of sudden bankruptcy would still sell the very noose with which he would be hanging himself?
This capitalists, capitalism, cannot do, it is not its social order, not its historic duty.
Of course, in difficult times, in labor pain, the workers, the proletariat, have helped the weak bourgeoisie to gain political power. This was the case in the 1848 Revolution in France, and in the three Russian revolutions of 1905, February and October 1917. Out of gratitude, perhaps President Obama could support President Chavez now to help in the launching of an international class struggle, to direct this global fiasco towards "green pastures and flowing waters", towards scientific, philosophic, sapient socialism..
Anyhow, as Wall Street witnesses: In spite of depression, Business is Business, and as the United States guarantee: Big Business is Good War, and Big War is Good Business.
