Masters Of War

Come you masters of war You that build all the guns You that build the death planes You that build all the bombs You that hide behind walls You that hide behind desks I just want you to know I can see through your masks. You that never done nothin' But build to destroy You play with my world Like it's your little toy You put a gun in my hand And you hide from my eyes And you turn and run farther When the fast bullets fly. Like Judas of old You lie and deceive A world war can be won You want me to believe But I see through your eyes And I see through your brain Like I see through the water That runs down my drain. You fasten all the triggers For the others to fire Then you set back and watch When the death count gets higher You hide in your mansion' As young people's blood Flows out of their bodies And is buried in the mud. You've thrown the worst fear That can ever be hurled Fear to bring children Into the world For threatening my baby Unborn and unnamed You ain't worth the blood That runs in your veins. How much do I know To talk out of turn You might say that I'm young You might say I'm unlearned But there's one thing I know Though I'm younger than you That even Jesus would never Forgive what you do. Let me ask you one question Is your money that good Will it buy you forgiveness Do you think that it could I think you will find When your death takes its toll All the money you made Will never buy back your soul. And I hope that you die And your death'll come soon I will follow your casket In the pale afternoon And I'll watch while you're lowered Down to your deathbed And I'll stand over your grave 'Til I'm sure that you're dead.------- Bob Dylan 1963

US think tank CSIS recommends THAAD deployment on the Korean Peninsula

US think tank CSIS recommends THAAD deployment on the Korean Peninsula
A prominent US think tank recently published a report explicitly recommending the deployment of a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system on the Korean Peninsula to Washington.
The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) also claimed a strong likelihood that the current regime in North Korea will collapse.
While the CSIS is widely recognized as a cradle for conservative security experts in the US - with a number of its Asia specialists having strong backgrounds on and sympathies toward Japan - the report’s recommendations are expected to generate some controversy because of their potentially large impact on the policy decisions of the US and other governments.
Titled “Asia-Pacific Rebalance 2025,” the report was published on Jan. 20 and commissioned by the US Department of Defense. In it, the importance of a THAAD deployment on the Korean Peninsula is stressed as a means of strengthening regional missile defense capabilities under the Asia-Pacific “rebalancing” strategy..........................................

While CSIS presented the report as an “independent” assessment, its content appears to reflect the interests of the US Department of Defense and defense industry, which would like to see an increased defense budget.
A financial report published in 2013 showed business (32%) and the government (19%) to account for a majority of CSIS revenues, not including those of its foundation (29%). Members of its board of trustees include the chairmen of Boeing and ExxonMobil. Many of its projects are studies commissioned by the Pentagon.
Also characteristic of CSIS reports are their emphasis on the China threat and defense of US and Japanese interests. In 2014, the New York Times reported that the institute had received at least US$1.1 million in support from the government-affiliated Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) over a four-year period.

THAAD has absolutely nothing to do with the defense of S/Korea.
It is all about forming a new Pacific/Asia style of NATO.
The MIC must be fed.
Japan's new military policy is frightening and plays into the U.S. containment policy of China.
HERE IS a more in depth showing of how CSIS is an arm of CFR.
