I am stating , for the record, that my intent is not to promote any particular political agenda, nor do I wish to presume that anyone 'needs' to
hear this for any reason other than academic....
Apparently today, Ron Paul made a little speech.... in it, towards the middle, he begins to talk about, and directly references, the "military
industrial complex". Subsequently he talks about an entity which would be - by his reasoning - a critical component of the MIC - and perhaps the
head of the tentacled creature itself.....
Kudos to mnemeth1 for posting a thread so it could be discussed .... of course politics will enter the dialog,.. I expect.
Good choice for a research paper.
Check out the history of General Dynamics of Ft. Worth Texas.
I believe you'll find some interesting players in the venture, especially the general officers on their board.
The author has lots of other papers on the website that touches on the MIC and related topics. Try not to get too phased from this attitude by
boondock-saint. It can be a touchy subject, which means you are getting close. It can also get confusing at times with so many different stories. You
may not end up a millionaire pursuing research in this area, but you will get a better understanding of how the system works.
