Special thanks to Thomas for bringing this to light on the AC-T

World-Wide Military Spending

- World approx $950 billion 2004 est.
- Rest-of-World [all but USA] approx $500 billion 2004 est.
- United States $466.0 billion FY04 actual :shock:
- #2 spender (China) $65 billion

The US spends almost 1/2 of the entire world military budget :!:
:idea: No wonder we don't have national healthcare :!:
:idea: No wonder much of the rest of the world doesn't trust our intentions :!:
Don't be a sheeple

And the men and women of the militiary still have to rely on food stamps and subsidized housing to exist.

99.9% of those Billions are going into the hands of the "fat cats" of the "militiary industrial complex" that Dwight Eisenhower warned us about 55 years ago.

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.
