"Dealers in Death"

War is a racket, as General Smedley Butler would say.  It serves only those elite interests that start the war in the first place, advancing their geopolitical, military, economic, and social interests.  The justifications given to the general populace in order to conjure up popular support for war are always deceitful, propagandistic ploys, meant to instill fear, conjure up resentful, hateful images of The Other Bad Guys we are at war with.  Public relations in it's most vile, wicked form, used to create an image of a foreign enemy threatening the homeland and freedoms of the public.

Below is a video, titled "Dealers in Death," which I originally found via the comment section at aangirfan's blog, that details the armaments and munitions dealers profits and behind the scenes maneuvering in World War I.
