Wag the dog.

Lets say you were the king of a country where 99% of the people were sand poor. Yet your country was sitting on top of trillions of dollars worth of oil. How are you, as the king, going to get this oil money, without bothering the poor starving masses? You want to steal the honey without stirring up a swarm of bees. You might convince them that this mysterious country a world away is the great Satan and they need to wage a holy war against them.

I mean really, if there was peace in the middle east the bees may find out who it stealing the honey and turn on them.

By keeping the people Jihadin' maybe they won't notice you stealing their wealth?

It's just a theory, but does in ring any truth at all?

A ring of truth, and speaks to our situation here at home. We have constitutional rights regarding habeas corpus, and search and seizure, that are routinely violated because we are 'at war'. We aren't 'sand poor' yet, but our wealth is being shipped to overseas corporations every time some of the commons is privatized. We don't need to go back to the '50's, but we need to get back some of the things we had then that made this a great country, like fair trade, paper ballots, military draft, and government for the people. And, we need to quit getting involved in foreign entanglements so that other people's despots can't point to us as the great Satan. And I almost forgot, fair taxes.
