Who Really Profits From War

Nobody who matters, that’s who profits from war.

The only people who profit from war are Governments and the owners of businesses who win government contracts to supply military equipment. Governments receive taxes and the owners of military suppliers get to line their pockets because of the misery that is caused by war.

Some might say it causes employment for hundreds of thousands of people who are employed in the war efforts around the world but wouldn’t those people be better off using their talents to find a way to prolong life, not shorten it.

People who say, war is necessary to defeat terror should remember, history is written by the victors, not the defeated. If the german scientists had been concentrating on splitting the atom instead of working out how to gas the opposing army, German could be the most spoken language in the world today.

“War does not determine who is right-only who is left” ~Bertrand Russell.
