War, who is it good for.

Or perhaps, to quote another song: Money makes the world go around.

If you sat a Serb and a Croat, or an Indian and a Pakistani, or a Columbian and a Venezuelan down together at a table, over a beer, chances are they wouldn't pull guns out against each other. They'd just sit and chat and compare their lives and maybe the words would get a bit heated every now and then, but there would be no war. PEOPLE don't want war. People don't want to shoot other people. Generally speaking anyway.

But who does want war?
More than a quarter of senators and congressmen have invested at least $196 million of their own money in companies doing business with the Department of Defense (DoD) that profit from the death and destruction in Iraq.
No wonder they voted for it.
