Blow 'em up - Build 'em back

The rumors are that Obama has pledged funds to help rebuild Gaza.
This is some kind of racket we've got going here. We support a foreign state that does does the destruction with $3-10 million or who knows how much in free aid. We supply some of the WMD's. Did any of the white phosphorus and depleted uranium armaments come from our domestic war machine? We have these weapons tested out in an urban area, kill some, destroy much but get real time results on how well they worked. Now we're going to help rebuild the rubble we created without speaking a whole lot of the lives we aided in ending. All of this being done with, supposedly, our tax money. With Iran, Saudi Arabia and other arab states saying they will help in the Gaza rebuild, we will have to try and appear neutral and do the humanitarian thing.
Rebuild just to have an excuse to destroy again.
Permanent war is a pre-requisite to permanent slavery.
