Eric Zuesse – How America’s Military Industrial Complex Wins All of Its Wars against America’s Taxpayers

How America’s Military Industrial Complex Wins All of Its Wars against America’s Taxpayers

As has been Documented by Such Authorities on US Military spending as Winslow T.Wheeler, Robert Higgs, and Others, America spends Each Year around $ 1.5 Trillion for its Military but hides at Least around $ 800 billion of it, so as for the US Not to Be Publicly Recognized as Spending Half of this Entire Planet’s Military Expenses, by spending it from Other Federal Departments than the Defense Department, or, The US National Security Budget for 2023 – 2024 is Approximately $ 1.5 Trillion, as Wheeler headlined a Year Ago, on 1 May 2023. He detailed there how Approximately $ 800 Billion of that $ 1.5 Trillion was Budgeted as Being from the Veterans Affairs Department, $ 320.8 Billion, all of that for the Military, Homeland Security Department, $ 103.2 Billion for the Military, Treasury Department, $ 78.2 Billion + $ 13.1 Billion = $ 88.3 Billion for the Military, State Department, $ 46.4 Billion for the Military, Energy Department $ 35.7 Billion for the Military, Justice Department and Others, $ 12.1 Billion for the Military, plus $ 146.0 Billion National Security Share of Interest on the Federal Debt. All of that Non DefenseDepartment US Government Military Spending Totaled to $ 752.5 Billion. He also mentioned “Supplementals” as then being “To Come”, and, now, as of the 19 April 2024 House Passage, Roll Call 142 | Bill Number House Resoluion 1160”, of the Procedural Motion On Agreeing to the Resolution Agreed to by the Yeas and Nays 316 – 94, Roll N° 142 So Innocuously Titled as to Hide the Dirty Deed that They had Just Done, it added $ 26.38 Billion to Support Israel’s Annihilation and or Expulsion of the 2.3 million Gazans, plus $ 60.84 Billion to extend Ukraine’s War at Least until President Biden becomes Re Elected, plus $ 8.12 Billion to Encourage and Support the Leaders of Taiwan to Declare Taiwan’s Independence from China, of Which it Currently is a Province, so that the US Government will Have Won Taiwan and would Then need to Invade China in Order to Defend from China that New US Colony, ‘Ally’. The “Supplemental” This Year, Ukraine + Gaza + Taiwan, totals to $ 95.3 Billion, Which causes the Original $ 886 Billion ‘Defense’, or Aggression, Budget for this Fiscal Year to Be, $ 886  Billion + 752.5 Billion + 95.3 Billion = $ 1.733.800 Billion, or $ 1.734 Trillion. However, even that is Incomplete, because the Entire US Intelligence Community, CIA, DIA, and the Many Others, is Classified, its Budgets are Secret, Hidden from the Public, and, of Course, These are Also Important Parts of the US Military, so, perhaps annual US Military Spending is now around $ 2 Trillion. On 12 March 2024, the US Director of National Intelligence Headlined DNI RELEASES Fiscal Year 2025 BUDGET REQUEST FIGURE FOR THE NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE PROGRAM and Publicly Revealed, in aAccord with a 2007 Law, “The Aggregate Amount of $ 73.4 Billion in Requested Appropriations for the Fiscal Year 2025 National Intelligence Program (NIP),” and on 20 April 2024 I shall Request from the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community the IC’s Latest Audit Report in Order to Determine How Complete that $ 73.4 Billion Figure is. I Start with the Assumption that it is the Bare Minimum of What the Complete Number is, and that What the Maximum might Be, and What the Reality is, have Remained Top Secret in this Dictatorship. A Number of Leading Investigative Historians have Documented that Ever since the First CIA Coup, which was against Thailand in 1948 and Which started the CIA’s Heavy Financial Dependence upon Skimming from the International Narcotics Cartels via Protection Money Laundered into Funding CIA Operations, Not All of at Least that Agency’s Funding is On the Books. However, in Any Case, if Current Annual US Military Spending isn’t above $ 2 Trillion, it is at Least near $ 2 Trilion. And Virtually All of it is Wasted because America has No Border Disputes with Either of Its Two Bordering Nations and is Protected by Over 3.000 Miles of Ocean from Both Europe to Its East and Japan to Its West and has Won Both Japan and Europe as Its Colonies, and So for this Country to have Annual Military Expenses of over $ 100 Billion is Obscenely to Be Controlled by its Armaments Manufacturers , id est, by the Billionaires Who control Those, Which It So Obviously is, and Which leaves Virtually Nothing except Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid to Actually Serve the Non Billionaire US Public. And, of Course, America’s Hundreds of Invasions and 900 Foreign Military Bases, and Perhaps around A Hundred Coups, Ever since the End of WWII, have Destroyed Many Countries, so, this Military is a Terror and a Curse to Virtually the Entire World and Needs to Be Enormously Reduced.

Maybe Not Only for Non Americans but Also for the American People Ourselves, the Sooner that this Government Defaults on Its $ 35 Trillion Federal Debt, the Better, because that would Definitely Be Lots Better than WWIII, toward Which the Current US Government is Now Inexorably Heading, unless the Now Inevitable Default will Happen before It does.

Any American Who wishes to Send this Article to One’s Members of the US Senate and House is Welcomed to Do So, and I shall Be Happy to Publicly distribute a Copy of Any Letter from any of Those Responding Officials so that Perhaps Others than Yourself will Have an Opportunity to See and Consider it. Even if that Response is an Excuse, it would Be Good for the Public to Know What That is.

Investigative historiaEric Zuesse’s latest book, AMERICA’S EMPIRE OF EVIL: Hitler’s Posthumous Victory, and Why the Social Sciences Need to Change, is about how America took over the world after World War II in order to enslave it to U.S.-and-allied billionaires. Their cartels extract the world’s wealth by control of not only their ‘news’ media but the social ‘sciences’ — duping the public.
