Warren Buffett, the mega-billionaire investor who is ranked one of the wealthiest people in the world, recently told Bloomberg TV there is a place for citizens who cannot find their way in a rigged crony capitalist system steered by an elitist oligarchy.
Zero Hedge quotes the “Wizard of Omaha” as follows:
You want everybody educated to their potential. You want people to reach their potential. That still won’t work for some people in a highly developed market system.
I mean if this were a sports-based system, you could give me a PhD in football, and I could practice eight hours a day, and I might be able to carry the water from, not onto the field, but from the locker room to the bench. There’s just some people don’t fit well into a highly skilled market-based economy.
They’re perfectly decent citizens. We’ll send them off to Afghanistan, but they are not going to command a big price.
In other words, according to Buffett, America’s veterans are short of worthless, suitable for little more than serving as disposable pawns on the Grand Chessboard of American primacy and its geostrategic imperatives, as arch globalist Zbigniew Brzezinski would have it.
Henry Kissinger made a similar comment about America’s veterans.
Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, in their book “The Final Days,” write Kissinger told General Alexander Haig: “Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy.”
The remark was never denied by Kissinger.
