Herland Report TV host, Hanne Nabintu Herland speaks with Free21 Tommy Hansen about US war machine, Syria, Libya, the Arab Spring. “The driving force behind any war today is money and you must always ask yourself who makes the wars. It is not the people, they do not want wars – it is always the politicians, the kings, the people in power,” says Tommy Hansen, who was a Danish, Berlin based journalist, founder of free21.org, a news site that hosts over 150 journalists’ work in Europe.
Hansen points out how the US wars are a multi billion dollar business, a neo-con paradise of waging war on other nations and becoming wealthy in its aftermath. The war industry is fuelling the economies in the West in an unprecedented way. We live in a system in which the ultimate enemy is peace in the world. Tommy Hansen: “When we look at the history of the United States, war is a big business. The big families, mostly in the US who got very rich during the Cold War, would not like to lose their fortunes just because the world wants peace. This is where we are today. We are being driven by forces that have nothing to do with democracy. They want, for the sake of becoming even more wealthy, to make more wars.”
“Today it is not only the US that has a war industry. Germany has it, Sweden, Norway. Wherever there is a war industry, there is an influence on politics, because this industry needs wars. Look what happened in 1992 when the Berlin Wall fell, the Cold War was over and we were heading to world peace, better relations with the Russians and so on. This was a disaster for the American war industry. The stocks were going down, nobody wanted to buy stocks in guns and canons any more.” “We don’t need to look for conspiracies or ideologies, it is just a matter of money. The US could not even last half a year without a war. They would simply go bankrupt. Technically they already are, of course, and have been for years.”
“It is basically an agreement between a bunch of crooks without moral standards, who want to have power and money. Anyone looking at it from the outside can see that this is not sustainable, it is going to crash. And when it crashes, it will be very, very ugly. We have been flooded by US dollars now for decades, and they have no value whatsoever. In the early days, a dollar bill was exchangeable for an amount of gold, but it is not that way anymore.”

Hanne Nabintu Herland speaks with Tommy Hansen:
Herland Report TV host, Hanne Herland speaks with Free21 Tommy Hansen about Syria, Libya wars that created the Europe refugee crisis and mass migration.
Hansen was a Danish, Berlin based journalist, founder of free21.org, a news site that features over 150 journalists’ work in Europe. In the Herland Report conversation, he speaks passionately about the deep rooted moral problem of Western culture under the pretext of bringing democracy, but in reality bombing countries to the ground. Geopolitics has always been about the strongest player, yet, is it really in Europe’s interest to destabilize the Middle East?
The current mass migration crisis is also discussed in the program. As nations disintegrates into civil war and anarchy past military interventions, Western companies take control of their oil revenues, the gas and the billion dollar business of rebuilding the country. This is all part of the plan, states Hansen. And adds that the whole world is watching, silently, afraid that they are the next in line to be bombed. This creates a massiv hatred towards the West and is the main cause for millions of refugee to flow into Europe.
