This is just a theory

The U.S is not simply sending troops to the Middle East to fight the war on terrorism.

Think about it. If you were say preparing for some sort of ww3 in the future, you wouldn't just keep your troops at home untill war is "officially" declared.

You would systematically send them out, more and more, and once war is declared you are already positioned.

The withdrawal date is disinfo, no one would ever disclose this information if they were actually in a real war.

Again just a theory

Right now their troops are positioned in bases residing in basically all countries surrounding Iran. Reminds me of a game of risk. . .

Are you suggesting that the US war machine is in the Middle East and around the world, only because we may be heading for WW3?

First I'd like to address why we are around the world, and it has nothing to do with our readiness for a future WW3, though that could be a benefit. America has an empire, though while the empires of yesteryear (I know, I'm a dork for using that word) have been through military campaigns, our current empire is built through economic campaigns and policies. In other words, we are in the Middle East for economic reasons. Sure, some of our military bases over-seas are for strategic purposes, but with the end result of making money and keeping our economic empire.

We use the World Bank, among other institutions, to bankrupt other countries through loans for development projects that they can never pay back. It makes the leaders of these countries money and it makes the Western corporations money, while keeping the people of these countries impoverished. We keep most of the Third World under our thumb that way. When these foreign nations are under our control because of debt, we can rape their resources or use their locations for strategic value, such as air bases so that we may then rape other countries of their resources.

The countries that don't play ball with us that way, we try to start a coup or revolution through covert and clandestine methods. If that then fails, we send our military in. So, the military then becomes a last resort for an ever expanding economic empire.

Many people don't realize it but the reason that France and Germany opposed the US invasion of Iraq, is because they were the recipients of Iraq's "Oil for Food" program. The US wanted that oil and cheap, so we made an excuse to go in there and take it. Because Germany and France were getting the oil already, they opposed. Both countries knew that once America took control of Iraq, the US would then get the oil for a rock-bottom price or practically free, at the American tax-payers expense.

Just my 2 cents. I hope this helps!

let's hope that if war breaks out that they have a plan, for gods sake, for once, get it right, because its not the polititians who suffer, it's the american people, and not just the american people, us allies (UK, Canada, France etc.) who also suffer, because we are run by idiots who follow your idiotic government, it's like giving your best shoes (our soldier and our funding) to a blind man (the allies government), being led by a blind dog with a bowel problem (the american government "you-know-what-ing" on everyone and everything), thanks yor your time :p

kind of ruthless if you ask me, it's all about the money, if they didn't sell weapons to everyone in the first place they would have a lot less wars on their hands.

So that's why everybody in the world is packing Kalishnakovs and RPG's.

Your right that many countries, especially Third World countries, are packing Russian arms but it is also true that the US sells many weapons to countries around the world that causes their neighbors to arm themselves as a response. Take for example the latest arms deal worth around $20 billion dollars to Suadi Arabia that Bush & Co. orchestrated. This only destabilizes the region while the US corporations profit and ultimately at the US tax-payers expense, since it is us who will have to go in there when these weapons are used in an alleged hostile manner, or so we are told. This is not even counting the fact that many or most of these weapons wind up in the hands of our enemies.

Remember Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and the supposed "Al Qaeda in Iraq"? Do you remember how that video surfaced of him firing that SAW?

The MSM played that video over and over again while never mentioning that those were all US made weapons. "Al Qaeda in Iraq" were being issued US weapons from somewhere. They were either issued by America or by a country that had a weapons deal with the US. My guess is both.

The SAW is manufactured under license from a company in Belgium. The SAW in your video is not of US manufacture.
