Thank you, Lothar
This flick reminded me that ... the longer the war , the longer the enormous revenue stream lasts for the Military Industrial Complex.
Why have a short war when a long war is much more profitable !!
WAIT !! There's more !! When the war ends , how do you insure FUTURE revenue streams for the Military Industrial Complex ??
Well that's simple ... arrange for the war materiel to be abandoned in theater so that they can be replaced with
FRESH NEW SALES OF MATERIEL
( thousands of helicopters and other items were left there for the NV to keep;
the bovine scatology promulgated was that it would have cost too much to return them to the U.S. ) .
Thank you Scumbags LBJ, Nixon, Kissinger and many others.
"Many others" includes scumbags in the Congress and the Pentagon.
Eisenhower's 1961 speech regarding the MIC was originally written as the
Military Industrial Congressional Complex
but was revised to exclude the Congress to make the phrase less cumbersome.
( yes really ).
LBJ left the presidency with a net worth of $ 250 million.
