War consists of three major outcomes: it makes money for corporations, it destroys the innocent people of foreign countries, and it kills our troops. The general population of the U.S. cares about our troops but seem to look the other way when hundreds of thousands of innocent people die. How will we ever pay back the troops for what was and is being done to them? They serve willingly and ask that we do not use force unless no other alternative exists. They have been taken advantage of, and I suspect they will begin to speak out against war in the coming years. When people are told over and over that we're the good guys and are attacking a country because they are evil, the people start to believe it. Orwell illustrated this type of deception perfectly by showing us that a corrupt government can make one believe that 2+2=5 if it is pounded into their brain with enough force and regularity. George W. Bush and his administration convinced the American people that Iraq had WMDs and that they were involved in 9/11 because they were harboring "terrorists." "If you're not with us then you're against us" Bush said, as well as "we will use the full force of the American military." It's not shocking to hear him say that because he and all of his friends stood to make massive profits from war. Not only oil profits, but profit from the manufacture of military aircraft, weapons, and so on. His friends and business partners are executives in the companies that build those products, and they all made massive amounts of money from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. War generates profit and death, but profit seems to be more important to those who manufacture war.
