Military Gets Billions For Wars Americans Don't Want To Fight

Why is the military budget growing so fast they are already preparing the next war. What can we do to stop the military-industrial complex from expanding to obscene proportions? The Trump administration is planning to divert an additional $7.2 billion from the military budget for the construction of Trump’s promised border wall, bringing the total amount allocated to wall construction so far to over $18 billion.

The defense bill dedicates $40 million to establish a new, sixth armed service for space, which was $32 million less than the administration’s request. Even as Congress approved a sweeping defense policy bill this week that re-designates Air Force Space Command, it included language to prohibit any new billets, meaning the organization must be built with existing forces.
