MILITARY-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX ENSURES AMERICANS WAR WILL GO ON DESPITE GOV’T SHUTDOWN

The United States government’s mission of spreading empire, destabilizing peaceful countries, and violent regime changes will not be hindered by the government shutdown. Our fearless rulers have ensured Americans that the military-industrial complex will be just fine—despite not paying the soldiers.

On Saturday, Vice President Mike Pence encouraged troops to focus on their missions and ensured them that they will be just fine even though their paychecks won’t come in next week.

Although military personnel remain deployed and on the job, they won’t be paid unless Congress votes to compensate them.

“We’ll get this thing figured out in Washington,” Pence said early Saturday as he greeted US servicemen in Ireland shortly after the government shutdown. “Stay focused on your mission,” he said.

“We have soldiers that are headed down range to Kuwait for six months in a critical theater to serve the country, and yet because of Democrats in the Senate, they have anxiety about their pay,” the US Vice President said playing partisan tactics as he addressed the non-partisan military.

Pence then took to Twitter to lambast Democrats for their role in the shutdown—ignoring the fact that both equally repugnant sides are at fault.

While many bureaucracies will suffer as a result of the shutdown, the warmongers made sure to let everyone know that the programs “that keep us safe” will not be affected.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to remind both sides of the aisle that without paychecks, our military and their families will not be able to put food on the table, or pay their mortgages or rents.

Desperate, they may well become targets of "payday loan" sharks, which dole out relatively small amounts of money for staggeringly usurious interest rates.

As much as I abhor war as what appears to be, in the minds of those in the bowels of power, the only only way in which the US government can resolve their geopolitical differences with other countries, not paying our military stinks to high heaven.

FIX THIS!!
