As the war industry’s opening blitz to influence the deficit committee draws to an end, I just wanted to leave our readers with a parting thought. Below is an infographic I created using data drawn from the hawkiest of the hawks–Foreign Policy Initiative (formerly known/reviled as the Project for a New American Century). This shows just how ridiculous the Pentagon’s and the war profiteers’ fear-mongering about “doomsday” budgets really is.
Again, this is using the pro-bloated-war-budget crowd’s data and projections.
Don’t buy the hype.
