The problem is Peace Is Not Profitable. Profits come above all else, senseless wars, destroying the planet, senseless killings such as in western and eastern countries, the list goes on. If there is no money to be made who cares. And Amaryllis Fox’s is Spot-on , its more like ALL WARS ARE BANKERS’ WARS! It is profitable in so many ways, to many private corporations you didn’t even know are in the war business. Banks have always profited from war because the debt created by banks results in ongoing war profit for big finance; and because wars have been used to open countries to U.S. corporate and banking interests. Secretary of State, William Jennings Bryan wrote: “the large banking interests were deeply interested in the world war because of the wide opportunities for large profits.”

Amaryllis Fox’s secret life in the CIA taught her one lesson: Listen to your enemy. As she begins the process of having her CIA cover rolled back, this is the first time she has spoken publicly about working undercover, and what she has to say is probably not something you would expect to hear from a former CIA agent.
Fox, whose CIA cover is still being rolled back, just spoke publicly for the first time ever about working undercover on counterterrorism and intelligence with the Clandestine Service. In a video from the Al Jazeera news channel AJ+, she talks about what her 10 years in the CIA taught her.
“If I’ve learned one lesson from my time with the CIA, it is this: Everybody believes they are the good guy,” she says.
She explains how people in Muslim countries think Americans hate Islam, while Americans think Islamic terrorists hate our freedom. In reality, she says, most people fighting on behalf of their countries are trying to carve out better futures for their families or end specific policies. But they’re not listening to each other.
The narratives we usually hear about opposing countries “are stories manufactured by a really small number of people on both sides who amass a great deal of power and wealth by convincing the rest of us to keep killing each other,” she says. “I think the question we need to be asking as Americans examining our foreign policy is whether or not we’re pouring kerosene on a candle. The only real way to disarm your enemy is to listen to them.”
The video ends with a mic-drop-worthy moment: “As long as your enemy is a subhuman psychopath that’s going to attack you no matter what you do, this never ends. But if your enemy is a policy, however complicated, that we can work with.”
