    It's not CT to acknowledge that the U.S. has overthrown more democratically elected governments, installed and supported more brutal dictators than any other (maybe all other) country.
    It's not CT to acknowledge that before the rise of the military industrial complex, we were reluctant to go to war but won them decisively when we did.. We haven't won a war since the rise of the MIC.
    It's not CT to say that if we have private banks too big to fail in the name of investor profits, then we certainly have an MIC too big for peace.
    It's not CT to say there is no profit in peace, and it's the unrestrained capital model that a company must grow unrestrained.

    This is the factual context. No CT needed.
    I literally agree with the entirety of your post. There's an important distinction between opponents of the military industrial complex and conspiracy theorists.
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.

    What part of Occam's post suggest that the United States actually sponsors terrorism to promote war in response?
