Is the banking crisis really a scam to get countries to pay tribute (a share) of America´s wars

I spent thirty nights in Badajoz, España,
and during that time I finish reading the
´History of the Peloponnesian War´ by
Thucydides (c. 460 BC – c. 395 BC).

It was an amazing story of the downfall of
the Athenian empire, which like the USA was
based mostly upon sea power - her navy.

Those that they called their allies were
for the most part were in a subordinate
relationship with Athens.

Thucydides, and others in the story make the point
over and over that a successful prosecution of a war
lies in large part upon money.

Those with the greatest resources stand the best chance
of coming out long as their policies,
tatics and strategy are off.

But, war requires loads of money. Athens, and Sparta both
had their so-called allies paying them tribute in one form
or another, whether in building a certain number of ships,
providing troops, or mercenaries, or in cash.

So, the thought occurred to me is this so-called banking
crisis really a scam (well we all know it is), but really a
way of raising tribute to pay for the ongoing cost of America´s
wars of aggression?

I think it´s very possible that that is why the banks demand money.
Banks prosecute wars, or wars are prosecuted for their benefit,
and anyone who doesn´t think that this is so ought to read ´War is
A Racket´by Major General Smedley Butler, USMC.
