MID-EAST REALITIES - www.MiddleEast.Org - Washington - 2/18/2002:
    The American President is in Asia, touring one past and potential future
battlefield in Korea.  The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs is in India touring
another.  And the Vice-President is preparing for an unprecedented trip that
will take him, along with senior military and CIA operatives, to nearly a
dozen countries that just happen to surround Iraq.  Meanwhile the Israelis
have clamped down on the Palestinians as never before; and they seem to be
just awaiting their moment when the attention of the world is focused
elsewhere to further their conquests.
    The American arms manufacturers -- once again the largest and richest in
the world -- are working overtime with windfall profits.  The U.S. has
run out of its high-tech computer/satellite guided "cruise missiles",
possibly contributing to the delay in moving the "War Against Terrorism" to
Iraq.  But a massive unprecedented purchase order for thousands of even more
lethal cruises has been placed; and they are to start being delivered in
larger numbers than ever in the immediate months ahead.  And now, as this
weekend article outlines, the American Empire is on the way to becoming an
early precursor of its "Star Wars" inspiration.   As with so many things in
today's American Empire, if you really want to understand what's happening,
and why, follow the money...and the weapons.
