war-mongers

A wise person once said to me "War makes money for some people (war-mongers) but those people aren't the ones fighting and dying..." Let that sink in.. we're talking military empire here folks. In the good ol' US, it seems the war-mongers are winning.

"The trillion-dollar national security budget" –> At TomDispatch,  (and also reprinted at our site) William Hartung writes, "you wouldn’t know it, based on the endless cries for more money coming from the military, politicians, and the president, but these are the best of times for the Pentagon. Spending on the Department of Defense alone is already well in excess of half a trillion dollars a year and counting. Adjusted for inflation, that means it’s higher than at the height of President Ronald Reagan’s massive buildup of the 1980s and is now nearing the post-World War II funding peak. And yet that’s barely half the story. There are hundreds of billions of dollars in 'defense' spending that aren’t even counted in the Pentagon budget."
