US Military Spending Is Undebatable Because It’s Indefensible

by David Swanson

“The reasons to reduce military spending include: the higher than ever risk of nuclear apocalypse, the immense environmental damage done by weaponry, the horrific human damage done by weaponry, the economic drain, the desperate need for global cooperation and spending on environment and health and welfare, and the promises of the 2020 Democratic Party platform. The reasons to increase military spending include: lots of election campaigns are funded by weapons dealers. So, of course, there’s no debate. A debate that cannot be had must simply be declared over before it begins.” (06/11/22)
