More proof that Mars rules (not established laws or the Constitution):
"Why no Pentagon audit? Too big to audit? No. Just too many scandals, too much waste, gigantic weapon system redundancies, overlaps between military branches, and many sinecures in bloated, inflexible bureaucracies, so often condemned by commanding generals in the field."
Thank you for not showing homage to The Beast, Mr. Nader and daring to challenge its claim to as much wealth as it can cannibalize, while U.S. bridges fall into disrepair and children actually are forced to drink lead-laced water!
The history of empires shows that investments in wars abroad leave no money to sustain a decent standard of living for those "at home."
This begs the question: What does Defense or Security really mean?
If the money being hemorrhaged by the Military Machine (MIC) leaves nothing for safe drinking water, secure bridges, and greener overall infrastructure... then what does this alleged Security even mean?
Answer: SECURE payments to the war profiteers, arms' salesmen (like the Carlyle Group) and lots of generals winning 6-figure salaries at firms that provide those weapons so long as the Generals keep the wars marching off the assembly line.
