Militarist Money

Imperial Commander-in-Chief Barack Obama is requesting even more money -- $5.6 billion more -- to wage more war in Syria & Iraq.

Every extra military dollar spent is extra profit for somebody.
The money typically flows to politicial "friends"

Is it 2% ?
Or maybe it's 5% ?
But it's probably more than 15% ...
Some war material suppliers profit above 25%

Already The Pentagon bleeds America with "normal" military appropriations. Here's billion-dollar-chunks of 'extra' money:

$1,000,000,000.00   profits  $250,000,000
$1,000,000,000.00   profits  $250,000,000
$1,000,000,000.00   profits  $250,000,000
$1,000,000,000.00   profits  $250,000,000
$1,000,000,000.00   profits  $250,000,000
$   600,000,000.00   profits  $150,000,000

We spend & waste on war supplies, with no proper business in Syria or Iraq. What the fuck? - "teaching them" or "helping" some small elite is costly balderdash. We fight & beat ourselves in our increasingly pitiful "homeland" grubbing for welfare cheats or bad teachers, while Daddy Warbucks grabs hundreds of millions more windfall global profits. Choosing war leaves no money for local communities. Bring our military home !

[ even more money now ! ]
