The New Military Industrial Complex
Why Nearly as Much Military Spending as Before Communist Crash?
|Americans Against World Empire, Inc. Homepage
Now it's called the Military-Industrial-Congressional establisment, the MICE. On any war or bombing issue most establishment Republicans and Democrats are in favor (witness the Republican Senate Committee Chairmen who supported bombing Serbia) while it's Freshman/Sophmore Republicans in Congress and old Liberals and minorities which are more opposed. The House of Representatives with its higher turnover is much more opposed to American military imperialism. Washington's establishment (journalists, think tanks, military, Congressmen, FBI/CIA security establishment all thrive on war and conflict overseas). Now with Iraq we see the same forces at play. When bush first came in, it was China that was the objective of the War Party, now it's the Moslems, but any war will do.Military-Industrial Lobby -guts arms control treaties so as to push new weaponry--retired generals, think tanks, wars
