Weapons/war industries enriches the 1%, but cuts to everything else in American society are sacrificed to maintain war.
What a plan: destabilize the region via regime change, prop up a friendly despot and sell them weapons. We're the biggest armorer in the world. Here's a partial list for Bahrain, home of the US 5th Fleet (opposite Iran):
coastal patrol boats and a frigate that have been designated as excess U.S. military material, as well as engine upgrades for Bahrain’s fleet of F-16 fighter jets. Other sources said the list also included upgrades for Bahrain’s air defense communications, ground-based radar, air-to-air and ground-to-air missile systems and Cobra helicopters, as well as defense radar components and night-vision equipment.
