Gagnon, a coordinator at Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space, made the comments in an interview with Press TV on Monday when asked about Senator Lindsey Graham’s suggestion to send 10,000 American troops to Syria to fight the ISIL Takfiri terrorists, Press TV reported.
“This indicates that the fundamental role of America today in the world is security export. We’re not making things in this country anymore because the corporations can find cheaper labor in other places, but security export means we will go on fight to wars on behalf of corporate globalization or corporate capitalism as they try to take control of the planet,” Gagnon said.
The US and NATO are “trying to take down a series of countries that are standing in the way of that program, one of them is Syria, next is Iran, at the same time Ukraine has been destabilized and broken apart on Russia’s border and they intend to take down Russia and China in the same kind of way,” he added.
“The American people have to really ask and answer this question: What is the number one industrial export product of the United States today? And the answer is weapons and the second question that has to be answered is… What is your global marketing strategy for that product line? And the answer is endless war,” Gagnon argued.
“You want jobs then you have to go and kill people and make weapons because that’s going to be America’s role under corporate capitalism. So, it’s a big moral ethical dilemma for most American people without really talking about this at all in this country,” he concluded.
