BATTLE FOR WORLD / RT AMERICA | January 30, 2019: The video highlights that the United States now has a Democratic and Republican elite, national security elite in particular who believe that it is now 18 years of war and if you count Iraq northern-southern no-fly zones the US has been involved in 27 years of war and it has no end and will not end, will never end. It is a state of empire.
And in fact, if it does not bankrupt us morally and ethically, it certainly will bankrupt the US physically.
The United States is involved in a perpetual state of war and it is judged as a concomitant of empire. And the media has bought into that. They bought into it because of the ratings it brings, the excitement it brings, the kind of news footage it brings. And they can get up and say why is the president pulling out of Syria, everyone will die in Syria if America pulls out. These things combined gives the United States an imperial look at the world that war is their reason deathtrap and the US has to use its military to bash people to maintain their hegemony.
Guys like Richard Pearl, Paul Wolfowitz, Dick Cheney, Richard Rumsfeld are essentially spelling out world domination - perpetual war. All this was written about in the mid-1950's as principle for America's action in foreign policy.
