CGTN: America’s MIC to gain from Russia-Ukraine war

In my latest editorial for CGTN, I ask people to remember that America’s military-industrial complex stands to benefit from the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war.

In the coming days, we should expect a barrage of military “experts” from inside and outside the armed forces to receive ample space in America’s newspapers and time on America’s television news programs to repeat that more resources must be allocated to protect the country. Critical questions about just how many dollars are needed and for what specific purpose will not be asked often enough because such probing leaves the journalist open to criticism that he or she is not rallying around the flag, an empty charge that nevertheless echoes loudly across the media space and serves to silence many reporters.
