Subject: RE: BS: Disaster for the Democrats?
Do you remember, Bobert, when the Soviet Union collapsed and the Cold War ended? We were told by our governments and media that a "peace dividend" would result, and we'd all be more prosperous.

Ha!

No peace dividend came. What we got was wars in the former Yugoslavia, quickly followed by a world war against Muslim extremism that appears now to be a world war which has no forseeable end. That's what they wanted, just like in "1984"...a war with no geographical center and no forseeable end. That permits the military-industrial complex to go on doing what it loves to do and spending our children's inheritance.
