Public Service Announcement for MIC50.org
Our current wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, and Somalia, and our smaller military operations in over 100 other countries are part of what President Eisenhower warned of 50 years ago in speaking of the Military Industrial Complex. We spend over half our federal budget on the military. We could cut it by 85% and still have the world's largest. No nation has tried anything like this before, and it's not clear we can survive it. We're shortchanging everything else to fund wars and overseas bases that make us less safe. There's a crisis in our towns, but in the midst of a phony budget crisis in Washington, the House passed the largest military budget ever. It's time for us to rein in the military insustrial complex after 50 years.
