Companies that produce weapons normally benefit from wars since the government needs to purchase weapons from them in order to continue battle. Of course, there are investors whom invested in such weaponary organizations. They too benefit from the war.

War Profittering - Is any person or organization that profits from warfare or by selling weapopns and other good to parties at war or in peace times.

International arms dealers-

Others make their money by cooperating with the authorities

Scientific research-

War provides demand for military technology modernization. Technologies originally designed for the military frequently also have non-military use. Both the state and corporations have gains from scientific research.

Commodity dealers-

War usually leads to a shortage in the supply of

commodities, which results in higher prices and higher revenues.


Political figures taking bribes and favors from corporations involved with war production have been called war profiteers.

The state-

Though war initially had the objective of territorial expansion and resource gathering, the county may also profit politically and strategically,replacing governments that do not fulfill its interests by key allied governments.

Military contractors-

Groups that potentially profit from war, or the threat of war, are

military contractorslike

Lockheed Martin,


Northrop Grumman,


General Dynamics, to name a few. Old military material has to be discarded due to age or is lost due to fighting and new and different military material is needed by the military to maintain strategic advantages over the military technologies of foreign nations which are hostile or may become hostile.

Black marketeers-

A distinction can be made between war profiteers who gain by sapping military strength and those who gain by contributing to the war. For instance, during and after

World War II, enormous profits were available by selling rationed goods like




butteron the

black market. Dishonest military personnel given oversight over valuable property sometimes diverted rationed goods to the black market. The

chargecould also be laid against medical and legal professionals who accept money in exchange for helping young

menevade a draft.


opinion is that is was already decided way before the war happened..Its all part of the NWO (NEW WORLD ORDER) the people in power of the world want to control everything by having small human popluation under atotalitarian government with same currecny,no religon, no privacy, no rich,etc..They want you to be a mindless working slave with no thought process or rebellious capabilities..Get ready for WW3 this is our generation biblical moment of mankinds last moments,we are in revalations and is about to get worse..
