The saddest thing is that we, the tax payer, cant say SH?t?about it.

#3 The tax payer can say something about it, but not just 1 or 2 people, you need a majority. Once you get that majority, you have to stay united and push through all the bull shiet the guverment tries to sell you. Because, like in all the countries, the government should be afraid of its people not the other way around.

And the problem is that you can't suddenly stop the money flow. You can't "lay off" soldiers or shut down a war or a military program like you do in a civic institution.

We're talking about the process of demilitarization a nation.

Soon... If you open your mouth or tweet/SMS/blog anything in opposition, you just might loose your citizenship and get deported to the south pole. With no recourse what so ever. :S

Very soon indeed.

A lot of supposition in this. I'd like to be able to sit down and have a little Constitutional conversation with these two guys.

#6 Exactly. The U.S. economy has been built largely, not entirely, but largely on the military and all its industries that supply it. I guess the video shows that in $ terms

It's okay everyone, America is on the way down. Yes, she'll throw her toys out of the pram as she loses power (which will probably be dangerous), but she's doomed to fall. All hail the next awful superpower?

#4 >the government should be afraid of its people not the other way around

No, no, no. Com' on, people! That's just childish. No one should (SHOULD) "be good", because they're afraid of punishment. Government (GOVERNMENT, for f's sake) ought to "be good" because that's the only rational thing to do, the only way they could be.
Sure, it may be so, that for some (relatively short) period of time the only way for them to "be good" is to force them to be so with fear of punishment, but that's not how it SHOULD be. IMHO.

#11 Blessing won't help.

If you assume that americans directly kill around 100.000 persons per year and you divide with the $ you get $30.000.000 per killed human. With that amount you can could have saved 30.000 children which died from hunger and thirst. Cheers

Say it this way , I work for a electronics company that turns .50$ parts after 2 months testing in to MIL-PREF High grade parts (mostly small diodes) we then charge over 200$ for each one.

I can not say many we sell but I can tell you now there spending millions on small electronics like this and considering each part they use in a missile control board or guidance system has hundreds of parts all which are of the same level, So guess why a missile costs so much ...

Guess who our main customer is ?

and who gets to pay the most taxes and get the least benefits? the 99%
who pays the least taxes and get the most benefits? the 1%
why are these wars fought? oil? rebuilding contracts? all sorts of stuff that puts money into the hands of the 1%

There is no 99% vs 1% in the US. There is the 20% sucking on the Government teat and paying no taxes and hanging out in public parks in some cities,and then there is the top 5% of wage earners who pay over 50% of all taxes collected by the Government. The bottom 50% of tax payers pay less than 5% of taxes collected. No hype,just the facts.

Is the war in Afghanistan worth the price?
The next thing to consider is what your oppinion towards the word "price" is.
Is the economy(savings, pentions, saleries, raise and BNP)worth the price? War is not cheap in terms of money, but you can allways earn more money. What you dont get back is the one's killed in action cause saving up cash becomes more important then paying for their safety.
Money comes and goes, but life, when gone, is just gone.
Rich or poor does'nt matter anymore then.

It a shame that this video is completely false, made up and not based on fact. It is a poor attempt at an anti military political statement
Whatever money did get spent on wars and defense still allows authors of videos like this, the freedom to actually post it!

War is a serious business.
Great video. Great information.
