The Military-Financial Complex Is Bloated on Blood Money from Wars

The Military-Financial Complex Is Bloated on Blood Money from Wars

This report was prepared by an EIR Research Team · December 22, 2023

Taxpayers in the United States and NATO nations support vast sums of money thrown away annually to the military-industrial-financial complex, for economic waste and physical destruction. This provides a tremendous bonanza to four Wall Street financial giants and banks that are the dominant stockholders of all the biggest war producers, and the ones driving the perpetual wars to maintain their bankrupt financial system with its $2 quadrillion speculative bubble. They are picking your pocket to fund the wars, and keep their bubble alive – and they are engaging in genocide and population wars.

In the U.S., the defense budget was $858 billion in 2023, and it is rapidly heading towards $1 trillion per year. Meanwhile our highways and railroads, our bridges and tunnels, our hospitals and schools are crumbling. And the rest of the world also desperately needs American technology and capital goods to help their development, working with China and Russia, rather than driving the planet towards World War III against them.

Here’s the face of the enemy of mankind, the modern-day Military-Financial Complex:

They Are Owned by Wall Street Speculators

They Are Addicted to Blood Money For Wars

Those Resources Should Be Used For People, Not Wars
