War is . . . day care. From Caitlin Johnstone at caitlinjohnstone.com:
Mainstream news and social media cannot get enough photos of imperial invaders posing for photographs with small children in Afghanistan.
Mass media narrative managers and military agencies alike have been spamming these images everywhere, as quickly and enthusiastically as possible.
That’s right. Invade a nation, kill hundreds of thousands of its inhabitants, stay for decades, accomplish nothing besides making war profiteers wealthy, drop everything and leave, then have your armed goon squad take PR photos with local infants so everyone thinks your military is awesome.
