“It is better to deal with a government in difficulties than with one that has luck on its side,” said Mayer Amschel Rothschild. “The best bargains can be found when the streets flow red with blood,” is widely attributed to the Rothschilds as well. Cyclical, traditional European wars of the type funded by the Rothschilds culminated in World War One, once referred to as ‘the war to end all wars’. Many bankers and rapacious industrialists gained fabulous wealth from the death and mutilation of millions. Just think of [Sir] Hiram Maxim who amassed an astronomical fortune from the invention of the machine gun! ‘Build a better killing machine and the world will beat a path to your door’. War is about the monetary profit of Kings and plutocrats.
