Just a poor excuse for you to use up all your bullets
Lupe believes the reasoning behind the War on Terror is because the government has all of these overstock bullets just sitting around from Desert Storm (and they need to be used before they expire), plus we have all these ammunition plants pumping out thousands of death projectiles. What is a country to do with all these surplus bullets? Stop producing them? Nay! The only solution is to “Load ‘em up, ship 'em out and shoot some Towelheads”:
“We better use ‘em before we lose 'em!”
On top of that, the public has come to the conclusion that the main philosophy of the US government has been that war is the best (not to mention easiest) way to make money… and that the US economy actually thrives on war.
Yes, it is a way to make money but not exactly the most ethical.
