WAR PROFITEERS IN CONGRESS AND MIC = LIE AND SAY INADEQUATE SECURITY BUDGET = $1+ TRILLION/YEAR

WAR PROFITEERS IN CONGRESS AND MIC = SAY Inadequate Defense Budget?

MOST Republicans and TOO MANY Democrats in House and Senate Armed Services Committees = LIE THAT US defense budget is inadequate.

CHENEY HALIBURTON

WAR PROFITEERS in CONGRESS propose the Pentagon be released from “sequestration” limits on SPENDING! NOW AT $500 BILLION/ YEAR

WAR PROFITEERS represented by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Secretary of Defense and any other Pentagon official near a microphone = Cheer for MORE$$

Facts:

# 1 Obama’s 2015 budget for all national security programs = $1+ TRILLION

# 2 US Security spending = MORE THAN ALL OTHER NATIONS COMBINED = including presumed threat nations

# 3  Pentagon portion of security spending Remain at historically high levels even under sequestration = ENORMITY OF MIC BUDGET IS AMAZING = Costing the Middle Class $5+ TRILLION over the Decade

Both respected International Bodies (IISS in London + SIPRI in Stockholm) say the US vastly outspends what many in the US today characterize as the threat nations: China, Russia, Iran, Syria and North Korea. =

FACT: According to the IISS, the US spending is 2.9 times the presumed threats

FACT: According to the SIPRI, the US is 2.1 times them all.

UK’s World-wide empire at the turn of the 19th century called for the Royal Navy to be equal to the combined strength of the next two largest navies in the world.

US has more than doubled that UK standard as regards budgets

FACT: OUR WAR PROFITEERING politicians and senior defense officials LIE TO GET MORE MIDDLE CLASS LOOT TO WASTE

FACT: Today’s MIC over-spending = BASED ON Fundamentally Misleading characterization that China, and even Russia, are major threat nations.

China is a major trading partner and creditor nation with the US, and Russia, even with Ukraine constitutes a regional power = CALIFORNIA’s GDP

In COLD WAR when we faced these truly existential threats, the Pentagon’s budget was significantly smaller than today.

US MIC SPENDING GRAPH

FACT: Today’s $640 Billion so-called “inadequate” spending massively EXCEEDS $355 Billion average during the Cold War = REMARKABLE MIC LIES!

FACT: More MIC money in the face of lesser threats

FACT: MIC cannot manage at LOWER SPENDING LEVELS BECAUSE OF MASSIVE LOOTING MY MULTINATIONALS like BOEING – Overcharging by 21,000% to 177,525% in Inspector Generals Audit.

FACT: Our military hardware is outrageously expensive and OUTDATED even backward in performance.

FACT: Since mid-1990s Congress has increased money for DOD pay and benefits = Indiscriminant, across-the-board military pay raises + double pensions

FACT: Full-on spigot of post-9ll era = Pentagon bloated itself to historically unprecedented levels of overhead, staffing, multinational employees

FACT: Ultimate malfeasance = Our national security leaders never bothered to understand the MASSIVE overspending problem = Unaudited and Un-auditable 24 years after passage of Chief Financial Officers Act of 1990-intended to require the Pentagon to understand and report what it does with its money. $2.3 TRILLION WENT MISSING UNDER RUMMY!

FACT: Relationship of US defense spending VERSUS presumed threat nations = calls into question the competence of current US political and military leadership, both in the Pentagon and in Congress.
