Joe Lauria, freelance reporter and co-author with former senator Mike Gravel of the new book A Political Odyssey, discusses his article “The Personification of the Military-Industrial Racket,” McCain foreign policy adviser Randy Scheunemann’s long, diabolical history as a chief neocon and war-salesman, McCain’s side-jobs as a foreign asset first for Iran and now Georgia and how luring Russia to retaliate against Georgia may have been instigated to strengthen McCain’s campaign and ratchet up arms sales.

  1. The Pharisees ( the modern likes of Jacob Schiff/Max Warburg) are still at war with Russia ( they still resent how the revolution went against them..that Trotsky guy getting murdered..” oy, that’s where it all began to go wrong..” Their war-profiteering allies are in on the grand game too..
    Yes, these guys are up in the owner’s box while the quasi-Christians, Shia and Sunni kill each other…Almost as good ( in their eyes ) as WW I when Christian Europe destroyed itself….all of the above is why there is no answer in politics..
