Selling The Wars - Image Is Everything When You're Marketing A $3 Trillion War Machine

Video - Marketing the killing machine

The Pentagon budgets half a billion dollars to market its wars in the U.S.  Call it public relations or call it propaganda, it's meant to win the hearts and minds of Americans.  But is it coming at the price of the truth?  Examining the cost of war in Afghanistan and Iraq.

For those wondering why I cover the wars, it's simple.  All moral issues aside, of which there are plenty, if we have to borrow - let's face it, it's stealing - if we have to steal from future generations to pay for our current love of killing, then it will be covered here at the Bail.  Book it.

I now declare any figure between 2 to 3 trillion dollars the "SAMUELSON ENIGMA".

There is a cost to keeping our freedom. We would fall victim to Terror if we weren't in these wars. This is all to keep our country safe. We can't let them win. Am I forgetting anything? Oh yeah, bend over and let me finish that search. Do you feel safe now?

The ex marine hero guy in a suit at the beginning of the video concludes the reason American media gets it so wrong is they "want to get close to the story".

A simple read of media board chairs don't require too much effort to connect those "close tot he story" media members to the flame and pain industrial complex and partner in crime, the war usury exchange.

If it's in the NY Times it's government disinformation. Period. When ya need a consent manufactured for war crimes - fax it to the editors of the NY Times.

Project Mockingbird comes to mind. A policy that provide structure to the state police embedded media we see on the Hypno Tube MSM news-gossip and CSPAN.

The author reports American casualties with no mention of th Million Dead Iraqi we continue to sear with drones justifying the projected 4 Trillion total outlay of future harvest has been allocated for.

Another BIG problem is the reference to US Extortion and War Usury's reign of pain and flame as "WAR". A war usually means a nation was attacked and defended itself. No WMD evidence found - no WMD pre-crime evidence found. No links to the K Street Brothels' allegations and matrix construct related to nine slash eleven. Yet - over a million dead - over 4 Trillion of harvest extorted at compound interest for a genocide veiled as the American Way and Patriotism.

Sounds more like a war crime than a war. Go figure.

Why don't the soldiers just refuse to fight, except to protect our own borders, which it sorely needs.

"Call it public relations or call it propaganda..."

I'd say call it propaganda. Edward Bernays, the man who invented both terms, said he coined the term "public relations" because the Nazis had ruined the word "propaganda." However, he said, they mean the same thing. "Public relations" is an innocuous term to the public while "propaganda" carries a negative charge suggesting lies and brainwashing, which is what is actually happening. Try it in conversations whenever the Pentagon's info war efforts are discussed to gauge the reactions; use the Bernays quote to shut up anyone who claims that "public relations" is not "propaganda." It won't change minds that are already made up, but it can make some stop to think about what is really being done to them, at great cost.

1849: Gutele Schnaper, Mayer Amschel Rothschild’s wife dies. Before her death she would state, “If my sons did not want wars, there would be none.”

Consider this: If the USA (or any instigator) was about to attack another country and that country said " Alright, but we will not attack you in return. We will instead attack the Rothschilds where ever they may be." It is quite possible that all wars would come to an immediate END. In fact, there is no question about it.
