Money from war or its happening or not happening never mattered. Everything that happens in the world today has three aspects to it : 

  1. Economical 
  2. Social 
  3. Environmental 

Today we are going to look into the first aspect of WAR. 

Approximately a year back on 14 Feb 2019, Pakistani Terror organization attacked the bus transporting Indian troops, killing all the troops on the bus in a suicide bombing in Pulwama, Kashmir Valley. On this day Indian Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi made a statement that India will take revenge with interest. And they did, Indian fighter jets crossed the LoC and dropped bombs on a terrorist Launch Pads of the Jaish-e-Mohammed located near Balakot town in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan.

But there is a lesser-known fact that the bombs that were used at the drop site. They were purchased from Israel. This is the miniature version of how the money is made when two countries are at war. 

Do you recall on 3 January 2020, POTUS said that a United States drone strike near the Baghdad International Airport killed Iranian major general Qasem Soleimani of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

This story became the song that everybody was singing. And everyone started to comment on the matter and being Donal Trump he directly escalated the matter to war.
