I think you may be right in a sense. It is not the "government" really that pushes for wars, but individual politicians who stand to make money via
corporations who are involved in the manufacturing of military supplies, hardware, and who provide services and whatnot overseas during times of war.
So those politicians, plus the businesses/ corporations themselves, who go to their cronies in the government, and who lobby politicians who they do
not already have in their pocket.
It has been said many times, that war is highly profitable. War and oil are two of the biggest money makers ever, and when they get mixed together, we
see why people would go to the lengths they do to start them, or to lie to the US public to garner support for a war. Something like 9/11, people say
well how could something like that be engineered by Americans, or allies of America, or whoever, and the answer is profit.
I will tell you what a "life" means to many a politician. It means nothing compared to money, first of all, but US lives are only valuable to garner
public support and sympathy, and to be used as fodder on the campaign trail. Many of those same politicians who pull strings behind the scenes to do
things that make money for big business are the people who do not value human lives or the rights of the US citizen, not to mention some non-citizen
in the Middle East. Those who have not already need to wake up. The naivety of many Americans is startling, especially after everything that has been
proven already, showing just how corrupt the government is. Think of all the times they have been caught with their hands in the cookie jar, only for
the entire thing to disappear. The media doesn't cover it, and everyone forgets. Just think about it. And look at how many of those things have been
stalled in court, or thrown out, if they were allowed to get that far.
