The potential recall of more than 1,000 retired US military pilots is an indication of a “permanent war” mentality, says an American analyst.
In an interview with Press TV on Tuesday, Gordon Duff, a senior editor of Veterans Today said, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Israel’s intelligence agencies have pushed the US into a perpetual state of war.
“These nations have paid off US lawmakers, pushed the US into illegal permanent wars, invasions like the 2003 invasion of Iraq,” he said.
The United States Air Force announced Saturday it may recall as many as 1,000 retired military pilots to tackle an “acute shortage” in its ranks amid a national pilot crisis.
The measure amounts to an expansion of a state of national emergency declared by former President George W. Bush in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks.
