Korea, Vietnam: Millions of civilians dead, 88,000 GIs dead, billions spent. Bush starts the Iraq war on the lies of WMD and causing 9/11. Obama escalates Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Trillions spent. Payoffs to Taliban and contractors. Obama redeploys thousands of troops out of Iraq into surrounding Middle East countries to be ready for the next war. Obama sends US troops and supplies to Africa. Obama sends navy task forces to Asia. Obama greatly expands military bases around the world (over 1000). Obama builds new nuclear weapons, subs, carriers, bombers, missiles. Obama gives tax breaks to millionaires. The government and media are priming the public for the next war with Iran. What happened to diplomacy?
No other country on earth spends trillions of dollars for war like the US. This money should used to create civilian jobs, lower taxes and save our homes from foreclosure. Everything in America is cut and crumbling but the military budget is left barely touched. Cuts to veterans, seniors, education, roads, tunnels, bridges, ports, colleges, hospitals, states, cities, towns, villages, arts, research, clean energy, Wall St. oversight, worker safety, fire and police departments, etc. But we're building more submarines and bombers.
