hornberger tells you why orwell must have had a hand in naming the five sided fun house on the potomac, defense;

With all the born-again fervor for truth among the mainstream press within the context of the Donald Trump regime, would it be too much to ask for the truth regarding the U.S. Department of “Defense.”
I mean, come on, there is no way that what U.S. troops have been doing overseas for the past 70 years has anything to do with the defense of the United States. Instead,  it has all been about empire and intervention.
So, while we are on the subject of truth, how about if we change the name of the Department of Defense to the Department of Empire and Intervention?
Just consider all the millions (yes, millions!) of people in foreign lands who the Pentagon has killed since World War II. We’re talking about Koreans, Vietnamese, Iraqis, Guatemalans, Iranians, Chileans, Afghans, Yemenis, Libyans, Syrians, Chinese, Congolese, Cubans, and many, many more.
It’s important to note that not one of those people was ever invading the United States. They were all “over there” when the Pentagon killed them. Why, even the 9/11 attacks were terrorist retaliation for U.S. interventionism abroad rather than an attempt to invade and conquer the United States.........
