We Used to Call It Piracy

Secretary of War Ashton Carter reveals that it is wrong to think there is a separation between capitalist economics and war policy.  In fact they are connected at the core.  The cruel and anti-democratic TPP trade deal is indeed a weapon of mass destruction that would be used to destroy the last remnants of national sovereignty of any country that signed onto the deal.

It just goes to show that the 1% understands that US military policy isn't about spreading democracy, justice, human rights or environmental sustainability.  US foreign policy is only about freedom.....the freedom of the banking class to raid any nation for all their wealth and natural resources.  In the old days this was called piracy.
