    I have a theory, that the UK and the US are always at war so that the wars never come home.

    There is always a war going on somewhere, to make sure it is never at home, they join in other peoples wars so the world will always be reminded that they have an army.

    Advantages;
    1. The other countrys are too busy to notice the things we do.
    2. We supply the arms, which implys we can out gun them.
    3. Jobs, always good, till everyone wants to take early redunadancy- we will have a way to sort that out
    4. Keeps us fresh in peoples minds, good for business.


    So there is a reason for all this maddness, it's a coldly calculated decision.

    Military machines of the US and the UK are nothing more than quasi-welfare groups. With the state of both economies today, it's one of the few ways one can make a decent living.

    Steppenwolf had it right way back in 1969...

    The spirit was freedom and justice
    And it's keepers seem generous and kind
    It's leaders were supposed to serve the country
    But now they won't pay it no mind
    'Cause the people grew fat and got lazy
    And now their vote is a meaningless joke
    They babble about law and order
    But it's all just an echo of what they've been told
    Yeah, there's a monster on the loose
    It's got our heads into a noose
    And it just sits there watchin'

    Our cities have turned into jungles
    And corruption is stranglin' the land
    The police force is watching the people
    And the people just can't understand
    We don't know how to mind our own business
    'Cause the whole worlds got to be just like us
    Now we are fighting a war over there
    No matter who's the winner
    We can't pay the cost
    'Cause there's a monster on the loose
    It's got our heads into a noose
    And it just sits there watching...
