Another military victory where the Poor “socialized” their blood for Capitalism

Tripoli, the site of the FIRST U.S. Military engagement to prop up capitalism, is apparently fallen, not to economic "free" market forces, but to the Armed Forces. In a book titled "Liberty Reclaimed", often described as the libertarian bible, the statement is made and reiterated "the only substantial difference between the Soviet Union and the United States isn't one of raw political power or the freedom of the subjects but one of economic policy."   So, when the Military claimed and still claim that they were and are fighting for freedom, they're lying. Just as the Pentagon and their contractors lie about Agent Orange, which killed Miss Johnnie's husband and a countless number of others. Countless because the Pentagon, bowing to their Corporate Masters, denied for more than a decade that Agent Orange actually causes human death. They also have recently claimed in a lawsuit that locks out the people of VietNam from any lawsuits that the people of the Republic of VietNam (Saigon government) sprayed with A.O. (and lots of other Military hardware sold at massive profits by the Corporations who now claim a moral exemption to taxation) were enemy combatants thus not eligible for compensation for their kids being killed.

Tripoli and the Original Intent of the Founding Great White Fathers.

You know the first line of the Marine Corps Hymn, ends with "to the shores of Tripoli" So, why, exactly, was Tripoli so important? Well, since American Capitalism was and still is heavily dependent on goods and services produced by Slavery, an important slave-shipping region like the Barbary Coast (North Africa from western Egypt to the Gibraltar Straits) was the "Raw Material" source for American, British and French Capitalism. Slaves. Human cargo. The Bush family and the Harvard trust and the Yale trust got simultaneously Fantastically Wealthy through the 'necessary evil'.   Capital can only work if the Richest make other HUMAN BEINGS poorer. The "rising tide lifts all boats" bullshit is simply that. In a system of finite resources, and there is no resource which isn't... the Rich can only gain and maintain their wealth at the expense of everybody else. 22091
