I am more con on the ideas of this, but I can say yes to the argument as well. I will take this debate with the dear heart of defending my point. GL;HF

When wars or battles are determined by politics aka Limited Wars, we commonly see big companies or wealthy people, such as The Rockefeller's sticking their noses into politics and pushing money into the guns, equipment, and "political persuasion" (Bribes) to push their ways of war.

"During the 1930s, the Rockefeller's pushed hard for war against Japan, which they saw as competing with them vigorously for oil and rubber resources in Southeast Asia and as endangering the Rockefellers' cherished dreams of a mass "China market" for petroleum products. " (https://mises.org...)

as stated above people will push their greediness to sway wars, new let's move to the company part.

Defense companies such as Boeing or Lockheed Martin will profit from wars that the military pays for, so when they see a spot for war they can make it last as long as possible companies will "sway" these "limited wars" to work out in their favors. (https://www.usatoday.com...)

Going back to Rockefeller and their foundation, it is believed and very popular to "conspiracy theory" that the Rockefeller Foundation is pushing for a NWO(New World Order) and make the monetary value the same for both South and North America. (https://en.wikipedia.org...(conspiracy_theory)
You can also receive vaccinations and medications from the Rockefeller in witch David Rockefeller who owns the Rockefeller Medical Foundation skimmed on the topic of population control, which raised eyebrows. (https://www.youtube.com...)

Businesses can also provide mass amounts of funding to candidates for Mayors, Presidents, and many other political offices which can almost completely sway who gets elected for such seats.
'"Corporations or special interests will look for ways to throw money at the feet of the lawmakers," said Craig Holman, a campaign finance and government ethics lobbyist for the nonprofit consumer rights group Public Citizen. A behested payment "provides an ideal opportunity for the very wealthy and the lobbyist to buy access to lawmakers."'

"The problem of money in politics is so universally recognized that even Donald Trump, the ultimate capitalist, and Bernie Sanders, a self-described Democratic socialist, agree on it... Sanders has spent his career railing against the corrupting influence of wealthy and corporate donors, while Trump has unmasked the game by admitting that he gave money to politicians to curry favor with them. The success of both of these politicians suggests the degree to which Americans are fed up with the influence of money on politics."
Even Current Presidents know about the issue with money in politics, and corporations are big for this.

(Note: I was extremely tired when writing this up. If there is not a lot of me speaking or specifically attacking a point is because of how tired I was.)
