Arundhati Roy says, “Once weapons were manufactured to fight wars. Now wars are manufactured to sell weapons”
But what would Arundhati Roy know about anything?
After all – she’s only a woman. And she’s a brown person, not white. But, most damning of all – she’s not a weapons expert – i.e in the pay of America, corporations, military, or government.
Bruce Gagnon comments about –
“we won’t make ‘consumer products’ anymore because it was cheaper to send those jobs overseas. Our role in the US, Barnett said, would be ‘security export’.

The USA doctrine of endless war is a bipartisan economic plan. Washington and its NATO allies are now planning for war with Russia and China.
