From an Amy Goodman 2007 interview w/ Chalmers Johnson:
"... [Eisenhower] from his writings that he intended to say a military-industrial-congressional complex. He was warned off from going that far ... I think he’s been overly praised for this. It was a heroic statement, but at the same time, he was the butcher of Guatemala, the person who authorized our first clandestine operation and one of the most tragic that we ever did: the overthrow of Mohammed Mossadegh in Iran in 1953 for the sake of the British Petroleum Company ..."
Coins have two sides. Our country's still over here, not over there. The MIC answers to no one. Corporate Democrats and Republican Wall Street Hoors are tearing our country down, but Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh keep a confectionary coating on it, to please the television eyed masses, and make destroying our republic seem patriotically pallatable.
