Default CNN Wolf Blitzer Tells Rand Paul That Jobs Are More Important Than Innocent Lives

And the mask slips off the MSM for a moment here.
CNN Wolf Blitzer Tells Rand Paul That Jobs Are More Important Than Innocent Lives

CNN Wolf Blitzer asserts, somewhat incredulously, that Rand Paul is more concerned about the MORALS of killing innocent people than the Jobs that will be lost in the U.S. if Military defense contractors don't make this billion dollar sale to the Saudis.

Rand Paul opposes the new Billion dollar arm sales to Saudi Arabia.
the Saudis have attacked Yemen and are killing civilians with U.S. supplied arms. Therefore we are aiding the attack on Yemen.
But Wolf Blizter points out the REAL tragedy if the sale doesn't go through.

the problem if the U.S. doesn't go to war...
the same problem Gen. Smeadly Butler saw... but expressed with dismay over the wars not the losses to the military contractors.
Even more pointedly than Gen Butler, it's he same concern that Preisdent Eisenhower expressed when he mentioned the "military industrial complex".

Quote President Eisenhower
"...Until the latest of our world conflicts, the United States had no armaments industry. American makers of plowshares could, with time and as required, make swords as well. But now we can no longer risk emergency improvisation of national defense; we have been compelled to create a permanent armaments industry of vast proportions. Added to this, three and a half million men and women are directly engaged in the defense establishment. We annually spend on military security more than the net income of all United States corporations.

This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence -- economic, political, even spiritual -- is felt in every city, every State house, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the militaryindustrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together...."
Hope is the dream of the waking man.

For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.
Job 14:6-8
