keeping the war kettle on the boil



This was the dedication on the credits for the 1988 Rambo 3 film. The US supported and financed the Afghan Mujahideen from the get go. It’s never a matter of winning a war. It’s a matter of good business practice. The war kettle needs to be kept on the boil to justify military-industrial cashflow. There will always be funding for both friend and enemy. 


Oh and Jeremy Corbyn voted against the US invasion of Afghanistan in 2001 saying, “This will set off a spiral of conflict, of hate, of misery, of desperation, that will fuel the wars, the conflict, the terrorism, the depression and the misery of future generations.”
