How much money does it take to really make a full clip?
The Marxist view of war is that war is fought to be fought — feeding the capitalist infrastructure — rather than to be won (eloquently expressed in the “Goldberg Speech” of George Orwell’s 1984)
Lupe also plays on “clip” which can refer to either a money clip or a bullet clip or even a video clip. Such as in the following line, in reference to possible cover ups during 9/11.
this line can also be referring to all the money the u.s spends on military, kind of like saying “how much money does the military really need?”
