Everyone knows what "stab in the back" means, when referring to wars for energy wealth. Capitalists, Dictators and brutal mercenaries all agree, ending the mass killings of civilians is a bad thing, especially when civilians form a militia and fight back, in which case, the war must go on!
Often, the term "stab in the back" is used by "conservatives" to describe any political action against the use of weapons of mass destruction, such as seen in the USA war against the People of Iraq. It is known for certain that the mass killings of hundreds of thousands of civilians within the jurisdiction of Iraq has influenced a militant ideology among them, which is hostile to not only the USA but also its allies. Although the allies do subsidize their own non-state militias across the Arabia Peninsula, the action of ending the Iraq war is being shown as a "stab in the back" being done by "liberals" like Pres. Obama and the Democrat Party.
What follows shows how the global fascist alliance secures the image of the "stab in the back" to influence popular opinon in the USA for support of expanding military operations.

Recently (2014-07) I heard my man Toby Keith call out Obama for his stab in the back against the war! Why does his opinion matter? Because his views become the views of his millions of devoted listeners of his popular music, and he is an investor in weapons industries and energy extraction companies.
