War Is Big Business.

        More and more people are coming to realise that the system of capitalism is a system of continuous wars. These continuous wars are dressed up in various disguises, bring democracy to a country, fighting terrorism, removing a nasty dictator for the benefit of the people. All of which, any thinking person knows, is pure unadulterated bullshit. Wars are big profit generators, wars are for resources, for profit, wars are for markets, for profit, wars are for power and wealth for the parasites who control the system. The only price that is paid for this slaughter for profit, is the death, maiming and traumatising of millions of ordinary people. We are supposed to swallow the crap that bombing a country, destroying it cities and towns, killing it citizens, shredding its entire infrastructure and displacing millions of the population, will benefit the people of that country. This is truly the vision of the insane.
        As we struggle to bring down this brutal and ruthless system of greed and destruction, one of our main thrusts must be against its mighty military machine. It has become the hub of the system, generating unbelievable profits as it slaughters to defend and increase the wealth and power of its master, the corporate juggernaut. The blood of ordinary people feed the greed of the capitalist system
This from Contra Info:

          From the 31th of july to the 6th of August the War-Starts-Here camp will set up in Potzehne (close to Magdeburg, Saxony-Anhalt,Germany). For several years now the War-Starts-Here camp has brought together lots of different people close to the modern and important military training site in Germany, the “Gefechtsübungszentrum Heer”, abbreviated as GÜZ. Antimilitarist discussions as well as practical resistance left a persistent mark on both the participants of the camp and the surrounding region. We gather to gain and share knowledge about wars and their preparation, to figure out the situation we are living in and to analyse its internal relationships. Perspectives in emancipatory movements are highly diverse – and so are the views on military and war. This in mind, we want to further develop common ideas of resistance, strengthen the local antiwar-initiatives grown over long years and also discuss our differences respectfully. It seems highly important to us, that we make a step towards the locals and talk with them about their experiences…and maybe more…
        For this year’s camp we build on last year’s main issues. The motto “Krieg.Macht.Flucht.” is still up-to-date, saying “war causes flight” while making use of the ambiguous German word “Macht” (translating both as “makes”/”causes” and “power”). This time our focus will be the development of common anti-militarist and anti-racist perspectives of resistance. Let’s overpower our powerlessness – the camp in Potzehne wants to provide a space for that. We want to have discussions at a horizontal level with everyone sharing our radical refusal of the global destructive circumstances.
        Training, exercise, preparation and export – war starts here! We want to make this deadly site publicly visible, since it is of crucial importance to war preparation. Through various antimilitarist actions we want to disturb the “normal” operation on the GÜZ, let’s mark, block, and sabotage this full-speed-running machinery of war!
       The camp is self-organized and thus, in its existence, shape and impact depending on active participation. Do not miss anything you haven’t helped to organize! Together we create a social counter project: From a society deeply infiltrated by authoritarian structures, let’s set sails towards Utopia.

  1. Who says this, an anarchist perhaps? No, this was said many years ago by a US Army general in his book 'War is a racket'.

    "War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses.

    The trouble with America is that when the dollar only earns 6 percent over here, then it gets restless and goes overseas to get 100 percent. Then the flag follows the dollar and the soldiers follow the flag.

    I wouldn't go to war again as I have done to protect some lousy investment of the bankers."
