Did the US Government start the Carlyle Group?....no........

The US government hires private firms and corporations, such as Microsoft, Carlyle, etc......

You said it yourself.....It's a completely different thing.......

Would you rather have the US do what socialist and communist countries do? Start and own the biggest venture firms and corporations?....or would you rather have the US hire private firms and corporations that are up to the task?

Socialist and Communist countries have what you call a Military-Governmental-Industrial Conspiracy....not the US....

The only difference between socialism and communism is that socialism is "lite communism", who started the modern socialist/liberal movement in the US? the Worker's Party, or as it goes by it's other name the "Communist Party."

So, I don't really see your point. You are accusing the US of doing things which are not true, and these accusations you made towards the US and the Carlyle Group are part of what socialist and communist countries do...

BTW....one more thing that you mentioned. Let me quote that part again....

Let's put it straight.....what you mentioned is not the reason why socialist countries have their own corporate, or venture funds....it is because socialism gives the power to the party (the government) over every industry in the country.....


The ideology in the socialist countries is Marxist. The idea of a socialist state was drawn from Marx and then later developed by the first leader of the first socialist state – Vladimir I. Lenin. The Soviet Union was the first “socialist experiment” and also a prototype for socialist countries later on. The system was created from scratch. While it started as a fairly dynamic system, later it ossified due to political rigidity.

A socialist state as any other modern state has three main branches of power – legislative, judiciary, and executive. Nevertheless, in most socialist countries the overarching power is the party – the party makes the decisions about production, the party supervises production, in short the party combines both political and administrative functions. Most (all) socialist countries functioned or continue to function as one-party state. Property Forms In a socialist system the means of production (physical capital) belongs to the state that represents the people. There is no private ownership of land. There is limited private ownership of housing and small-scale physical capital.

Governments in capitalist countries do not need - or want - to hire venture capital/ investment firms to develop business - communist/socialist countries do, because capitalist venture funds won't touch them. ...If you don't get that, you need to take a few business courses.

...Carlyle Group has prospered and increased its profit margin by upwards of $8 Billion(?) since Bush became president - why?

re: "Military-Governmental-Industrial Conspiracy" is the title of the article I quoted - I added a question mark to initiate discussion.

Socialist and Communist countries have what you call a Military-Governmental-Industrial Conspiracy....not the US....

Muaddib: This is not correct. The MIC of America is financed by taxpayer dollars whereas the Russian MIC is more of a central government industry. You noticed how THEIR Vietnam war (Afghanistan) bankrupted their nation, right? Our Vietnam made the core war-profiteers very rich. The American taxpayer and his belief in his vote will fund a MIC because he'll happily think that his tax dollars are going to something good when in fact, half his taxes are being used to build weapons and train warriors. He will gladly pay those taxes year after year and not question the need for war. It's a pretty sweet system for those on top (and who never face a bullet).

The military priorities in Russia and China are in response to us. Presumably they'd want to buy butter and not guns, right? In America, we could end war (yes we have that power) but instead, the profitability of war continues to be massaged. The socialist states cannot change the world, only America has the power now.

Here's an article about Nixon's Madman Theory in which he wanted China to think he was nuts and capable of nuclear first strike. Comforting, eh?

Countries like Russia and China have not been the moving force of war on the planet during century #20. They have responded to war fostered by America. Prescott Bush was part of the Wall Street machinery that funded the Nazis. You know this, right?

You are really ignoring some big facts. America profits from war and war has made it the Juggernaut it is. That fact is made possible by wall street and the bankers who love to see men die in war. These men hear cash registers when others hear .50 caliber weapons fire.

What you don't seem to understand is that there is a difference between state owned venture funds, or state owned corporations, which is what socialist/communist countries have, and hiring private firms such as Carlyle Group, Microsoft, GE, etc, etc, to meet the needs of the military or undertake tasks which could not be done without the help of such private firms, which is what capitalist countries do. There is a difference soficrow and what the US is doing, has been done, and is being done in other capitalist countries.

What you don't get is that Microsoft, GE etc. etc. have PRODUCTS - Carlyle Group does not.

...Carlyle Group provides a service - in this case, acting as a middleman to funnel tax dollars to producers - and taking a healthy cut for the the "effort."

Doesn't make sense. That's what the DoD etc. is supposed to do when it tenders a contract.

There are some other businesses which are not in that list because they are not available to the general public, but only to the US Department of Defense and other government agencies.

Carlyle has offices for Halliburton, Houston Technologies, and a few more of the usual suspects. .....Do you have some kind of inside info? Like Carlyle Group bought the town to escape the coming conflagrations, floods and catastrophes and is using US tax dollars to build their getaway?

First of all, do you realize you are making fun at, and pointing the fact that many of the companies that Carlyle Group owns are nothing out of the ordinary?.... which would mean the "conspiracy attributed to this company is false".....

Second, those are the services and products that they offer to the public...there are other services and products which are not for the public of course....

Third....what insider info can I have?...i never worked for Carlyle, that I know of, unless some of the companies i worked for were owned by Carlyle without my knowledge. I was in the military...but I was never an employee to Carlyle Group...i worked for the military, just like any other enlisted or officer personel have done.

Appart from the military i worked for "Attorney's Title" as a mapper, drawing maps an maintaning updated information on private properties, public property, and government properties in Dade County and Broward County.... I also worked as a certified mail clerk, which is a fancy way of saying I read letters that were addressed to lawyers and put a deadline in which they had to anwser those letters, I also worked in the retail department, and in a construction company that was owned by an uncle of mine.... So...why exactly are you asking if i have any insider info?.... I am presenting actual information and my opinion....nothing more....

What i stated is not incorrect, the US does not own these private corporations and venture funds....the US government hires these private firms and corporations....

The Russian government industrial complex is also financed by the money from the people...the Russian people are paid less money by the government than many people living in other countries around the world, including the US.....the rest of the money is spent on defense and on the rich....

In that you are wrong...it wasn't the war in Afghanistan that "bankrupted their nation....it was a combination of the ways they did business, that the people were getting tired and restless of all the suffering they had, and were still undergoing. The government realized they must do something soon or they would lose control, but on the overall it was, "supposedly" as a direct result from Gorbachev’s perestroika.


The deterioration in the economy, and the paralysis of central power that occurred in the late 1980s and ultimately the collapse of the Soviet Union is thus seen as the direct outcome of Gorbachev’s perestroika.

How many countries in the world have a military and make a profit by selling products and services to the military?....all of them.....

And do tell me which country in the world sends their political leaders to fight in wars?...... Every country in the world sends their young, and not those in power, to war.... But perhaps for some reason you are not aware of this fact....

BS.....if the US became a country with no military power, Russia and China would still have a military....

China has many times stated that they will invade an independent country, which was never truly theirs, if this country decides to claim it's independance....that country is Taiwan...Taiwan does not foster terrorists against China...the Chinese want to take over that country like they did Tibet... Your ignorance of the actions of the Chinese government is a bit astonishing to me.

You want to tell us that the Chinese government invaded Tibet, that their military killed thousands of their own disarmed people in the Tiananmen Square, and that they keep maintaining a military which controls their population and want to invade Taiwan because of the US?..... now thats a new one....

Chinese officials have also stated quite a few times that a war with the US is inevitable, and that they must make sure they have the advantage.... This comes from their government officials. I have posted articles quoting Chinese officials saying this in these forums.

BTW....China and Russia were not always good pals as they are now, quite a few times the U.S.S.R. and China threatened each other with war.

Also, has accused China of providing Pakistan with nuclear technology and that their main reason for acquiring nuclear weapons is because of this. China and India were also at war 35 years ago, incase you didn't know....


CHINA AND INDIA ARE THE TWO MOST-POPULOUS COUNTRIES IN

Muaddib you maybe well informed but you have made yourself blind of the realities of the Carlyle group and the Bush father and son links.

I wonder if this is intentional or just for fun. But with all the information provided by the people in this thread I will have to said that you do have some problems with understanding and digesting facts.

The US's involvement with Operation Ajax caused the rise of the first Islamic state.

From Wikipedia:


Operation Ajax was the first time the Central Intelligence Agency orchestrated a plot to overthrow a democratically-elected government. The success of this operation, and its relatively low cost, encouraged the CIA to successfully carry out a similar operation in Guatemala a year later. However, many historians argue that dissatisfaction with the reinstalled Shah led directly to the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran.


As for my use of rhetoric, I'll just quote the dictionary and thank you for the compliment.

Rhetoric: 1: the art of speaking or writing effectively: as a : the study of principles and rules of composition formulated by critics of ancient times b: the study of writing or speaking as a means of communication or persuasion.

these people are the ones that 'seek to harm us' as lil' bush says so smugly. can they be exiled? does that even exist anymore and how can this be accomplished? we have to form together and take back our rule by the poeple for the people and stop the rule by the rich for the rich. money is a pure, material form of evil. we all need it, but we dont need to horde it. any person that belongs to these tyrannus corperations are traitors to thier own people. but how many of you thought of ending thier lives, only to realize that there is someone below them wishing the same thing so they can have a hand in the pie themselves, so doing so might in fact make that unpatriotic biggot into a martyr and you into a traitor. the best way to do it, people: organize an elite network of those determined to trim the bush of america. call for a pre-emptive, precise assault on specified targets that are deemed corrupt and document everything in full detail and indepth demonstration, and exicute these traitors of america. when the next line steps in, take them out as well. sound like terrorism, or does this sound like what they are doing to us? to prevent these people who are willing to take part in the cleansing of the unpatriotic from becoming terrorists, the purpose must be explained and presented to those that are blind. thought must be put into this reform as to prevent the powers that be from tipping the scales in their favor and labeling these horsemen as terrorists. we all know what the average american thinks of terrorists and what theyd like to do to a terrorist if they got thier hands on one. if this happened those in power would gain even more. who wouldnt want to take out a lil' bush? but who is next in line? organize, enforce, rally, exicute. life would be different but if you arent afraid of change and you dont like it now, gather and get this moving. need a leader? i can help but im no leader. i am a shadow, i am next to nothing. i exist to decease. but i am able. so are you all. stand up take this undeserving power away from the "super patriots' who really run this country, i am with you. lives must be lost but why die a no one when you can be a hero forever. gotta go... i think they are comming for me

This thread has some good information about Carlyle Group, and figures regarding its phenomenal growth and profits under the Bush administration.

It's also taken some some truly strange aside roads into pure rubbish, which has pretty much buried the good info and discussion.

Hopefully, some may like to address Canada's compliance with corporate governance, and her alliance with Carlyle Group.

Vive la Free Speech! Liberte! et Merde!

The US's involvement with Operation Ajax caused the rise of the first Islamic state.


Ok, let's take it one step at a time. First of all...you are wrong on claiming that the above was the first Islamic state..... here is some information about the actual first Islamic state.


In simple terms, the first Islamic state established in Medina was based on a social contract, was constitutional in character and the ruler ruled with the explicit written consent of all the citizens of the state. Today we need to emulate Muhammad (PBUH) and draw up our own constitutions, historically and temporally specific to our conditions and based on the eternal and transcendent principles revealed by Allah (SWT).

From Wikipedia:

Operation Ajax was the first time the Central Intelligence Agency orchestrated a plot to overthrow a democratically-elected government. The success of this operation, and its relatively low cost, encouraged the CIA to successfully carry out a similar operation in Guatemala a year later. However, many historians argue that dissatisfaction with the reinstalled Shah led directly to the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran.


Back then the U.S.S.R. was trying to get a hold of the Middle East anyway they could. We were fighting the Russians in many ways, and the choices we had back then was to have a government which was controlled and which had ties to the communist state, or put another government which would be friendlier towards us, we chose the second option.... As you have said before, the Russians were waging a war in Afghanistan around this time, as they also tried to take control of that Middle East country.

As for my use of rhetoric, I'll just quote the dictionary and thank you for the compliment.

Rhetoric: 1: the art of speaking or writing effectively: as a : the study of principles and rules of composition formulated by critics of ancient times b: the study of writing or speaking as a means of communication or persuasion.


Actually as to your use of rhetoric I was thinking more to the likes of the following.


3. palaver, hot air, empty words, empty talk, rhetoric -- (loud and confused and empty talk; "mere rhetoric")
