The ‘War on Terror’ and Income Redistribution

Here is a fine piece which shows how the ballooning military budget, which is made possible by the phony war on terror, also serves as a mechanism to redistribute income in the US. Since George W. Bush took office, there has been a massive shift of wealth from the bottom to the top, thereby swelling the ranks of the poor and further enriching the rich (something like 37 million Americans now live below the poverty line).

And remember, this all comes back to 9/11, because it was the trigger that set these events in motion.
