So Anyway

One of the annoying habits of pacifists is their incessant whining about war profiteers.

The reality, as usual, is different.

As a result of World War I, Krupp, the German munitions firm, went from having a comfortable annual profit of 130 million marks to a cumulative loss of over 180 million marks by the end of 1919.

And the U.S. Government is always being called on to bail out various defense contractors.

Of course that doesn't ever begin to properly address the credibility issues of the so-called peace movement.
