We need to tell Americans their very future is being stolen from them by wanton military spending.
Putin’s actions…are being seized upon by the military-industrial-congressional complex as proof positive that Pentagon budgets, already in the stratosphere, must soar higher yet.
In the wake of the crashing and burning of that 20-year war effort, the Pentagon budget leaped even higher with the support of almost every congressional representative of both parties as Washington’s armed attention turned to China and Russia.
Washington insiders always talk of ‘all options’ being on a metaphorical table…including war, for the president to choose from. They lie. Because the one option that’s never on that imaginary table is peace.
If military veterans are dangerous, it’s because they feel betrayed.
Why, despite decades of disastrous wars, do Pentagon budgets continue to grow, year after year, like ever-expanding nuclear mushroom clouds?
America doesn’t lack toughness — it lacks smarts. Selling more weapons to Ukraine or Taiwan isn’t the answer. Nor are constant threats.
