War $$$

“we are prepared to fight and win” [Russia has] “chosen to be an adversary and poses a long-term existential threat.....This year’s budget request reflects our solemn commitment to the security of our allies and partners.”
   --General Philip Breedlove, commander of the US European Command

So up goes US military expenditure yet again, and the Pentagon’s generals and the Wall Street investors and the weapons manufacturers all over the United States rub their hands in delight. These snaky schemers are what the great President Eisenhower called the “military industrial complex” of seemingly patriotic Americans who, in the final essence, are America’s own worst enemy.
