War is Good for Business: Anglo-American Military Industrial Complex Sells Weapons to Iran

The capitalistic motto that perpetuates the Anglo-American Military Industrial Complex (MIC) is “create ogres then slay them for profits.”

While the US government is allegedly escalating rhetoric against Iran , and tightening economic sanctions against that country, the MIC was selling this year the Iranians through publicly available channels F-14 aircraft parts.


According to Jane’s Intelligence report, the US Government Accountability Office (GAO) reported on August 1, 2007 that more than 1,400 parts that are unique to the US Navy’s (USN’s) Grumman F-14 Tomcat fighter aircraft were sold to Iran through publicly available channels in February 2007. These sales occurred despite a January 2007 announcement by the US Department of Defense (DoD) that all such sales would be suspended until DoDs Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) had made improvements to its security procedures. (Jane’s Intelligence Report, 2007).

The Tomcat was a strike fighter with a high price tag of $38 million per plane that the United States sold to Iran in the 1970s, when the Shah of Iran gave the US and Britain full access for oil exploration and exploitation. The Pentagon retired its F-14 last fall and hired contractors for hundred of millions of dollars to allegedly dismantle the planes and to ensure that the parts are destroyed and not sold to countries that are considered hostile to the United Stated by the Bush administration.

This type of duplicitous policy is a standard operating procedure on the stage of international politics, where drama, fear, and wars are choreographed by the the financial masters of the world.

Meanwhile, everyone awaits the occurrence of an artificial trigger operation that will terrify the public and will justify the invasion of Iran , which in turn will secure the complete control of the straits of Hormuz, and with it, the oil supplies of the world.          

That in turn would force the west-dependent Chinese and Russians into compliance with the new world order guidelines. That would also deter the Chinese from dumping more dollars, which in turn would delay the death of the greenbacks that will eventually vanish with the North American Union when the time is right, and as Mexico ’s internal conflicts worsen. Then, the dollar will be replaced with another spurious fiat currency as the new reserve currency of the world.

Creating pseudo-monsters and destroying them is an essential element for profiteers, because conflict makes profits and promotes population control. Conflict and wars are a necessary angel that the elites have employed for centuries to advance their political agenda, and to gain full control of the world. When you can’t conquer financially, you subjugate militarily.  

The neocons’ allegedly creative destruction strategy is a key ingredient to devise and mold this new world order, in which they render the planet into a  jail where everyone is microchipped, and as a reward they would run it by proxy for the invisible financial Oligarchy. Unfortunately, if the plans go awry these neocons will become the neo-sacrificial lambs. 

Humans are desperately compulsive and do not learn from history.  They will continue their erroneous march by repeating the same self-destructive patterns of behavior, until they eventually succeed in eradicating themselves and their planet.
