Stopping them is a different thing from starting them. I think a lot of business types defer to the state except on things that matter to them directly.
As for the rest of what I said - the City opposed British entry into WW I, New York capitalists wanted to appease the South in the 1850s, there's little evidence the oil industry pushed for the invasion of Iraq - what part is untrue? The first two instances are historical fact. The third is based only on a lack of evidence - but do you know of anything to the contrary?
