Military Industrial Complex "Hopes Blowback Comes"

Sadly, the man who answers Troy is not just anybody. His name is Francis J “Bing” West, and he has been in some prominent positions before. There are a lot of things to say about this man I am sure, but I would like to highlight this particular section from his Wikipedia biography.

West served as Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs in the Reagan administration, and chaired the United States Security Commissions with El Salvador, Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Pakistan, South Korea, and Japan. He is currently president of the GAMA Corporation, which designs wargames and combat decision-making simulations.
So, lets get the facts straight. A former Secretary of Defense for the Regan administration and career government bureaucrat who happens to be the president off of a wargames and combat decision-making simulations company. In other words, he is apart of the Military Industrial Complex.

As you can see, Mr. West’s response was not only off topic, but completely uneducated as can be quoted for saying the following with regards to blowback:

….And I hope I do see the day when the blowback comes so that so that some afghan soldier walks up to me and says get of here buddy get out of here… — Francis West
I don’t know about you, but I really hope more blowback does not come, as that would be implying that he is hoping for another attack on the United States. Why would that be Mr. West? Could it be because you will get another big fat government contract and your personal interests would be benefited? I surely hope that this is not the case, which leaves the fact this man is completely incompetent (or lying). Whichever the scenario, I am deeply disturbed by this whole event.

The even more disturbing part of the story is that this is not being covered by mainstream news, and if it eventually does, there will more than likely be a smear campaign on this story. For we now live in a country where a person who stands up and speaks the truth can be looked down upon and labeled as “fringe.” Please understand that in a society of true freedom of speech, there should be no such thing as fringe. If you disagree with someone’s agreements, that is good. If everyone is forced to stay within the box of conformity, we are destined to tyranny like so many previous civilizations that have fallen in the past. Remember, despite what fake politicians try to tell you, America is not exceptionally good. Remember this next time you listen to our “leaders of the free world.”

In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.
