“When to Go to War”: How US Military Decisions are Really Made

Global Research, April 14, 2017
Washington's Blog 13 April 2017

Here’s how the U.S. actually makes decisions on when to go to war:

First. Decisions are made based – not upon defense – but upon gaining economic and geostrategic advantage.

And many recent battles are really pipeline wars.

Second. A massive propaganda and demonization campaign is launched in order to drum up support for the war.

There doesn’t need to be a shred of truth underlying the campaign. The p.r. flacks just have to come up with catchy slogans, and the mainstream megaphone is guaranteed to trumpet it into every living room in America.

Third. We pull the trigger, reap whatever economic/geo-strategic benefits are to be gained, and ignore the rest.

If this sounds over-the-top, remember that reducing terrorism and increasing our national security is pretty straightforward. It’s not rocket science.

The fact that we’re doing the exact opposite shows that there are other motives in play.

Postscript: I’m not picking on the U.S. I would imagine that all late-stage empires make decisions of war and peace the same way.
