Here’s What You’ll Pay for Neocon Wars: $5,900,000,000,000

More evidence the “war on terror,” now shifted over to a New Cold War against Russia and China, is nothing if not a money-maker for the merchants of death and the usury banksters. 

According to a study produced by Brown University, since the attacks of 9/11 the US has spent $5.9 trillion on wars designed to last indefinitely, or at least until the empire implodes. 

The Pentagon has lied to us for years, grossly underestimating the cost of its military operations against enemies largely manufactured by intelligence agencies. 

“That sort of vast expenditure is only the costs and obligations of the wars so far, and with little sign of them ending, they are only going to grow. In particular, a generation of wars is going to further add to the medical costs for veterans’ being consistently deployed abroad,” writes Jason Ditz. 

The report summarizes what many of us have known for quite some time—the wars are designed to last forever and represent an open-ended feeding trough for the “defense” industry. The authors note

there is no strategy for ending the wars. The fact that the US keeps spending huge sums for wars that, at least in Afghanistan, are in a stalemate, and in Iraq and Syria, are unresolved, is a long-term budgetary problem which will affect future generations. The government’s pattern of reporting only DOD war spending obscures the magnitude of spending since 9/11. The comprehensive analysis of post-9/11 federal war and war related spending conducted by the Costs of War Project is only one part of a greater assessment of the impact of these wars. The US economy will, in the long run, find it difficult to sustain this level of military and war-related spending and the deficits it produces.

Endless war and a financial scam worthy of a RICO investigation and perpetuated on the American people by the Federal Reserve and its cartel banks will not stop until the system collapses, an event that is far closer than many believe, that is to say the relatively small number of people aware of and warning about this eventuality. 

Trump has kept the Pentagon charade alive, acting as an international death merchant salesman of the month. His MAGA crowd apparently believes spending billions on redundant and often broken military hardware will make America something again, certainly not great.

  1. The number being reported is very low considering many people have no clue of the massive waste and fraud of the Pentagon with all of their contractors. This is just one year! Multiply this by the number of years of the Empires Wars in the middle east and you will be closer to reality.

  2. Yes, the military industrial complex is and has been out of control for about a century or more. But no one cares, nor will they until the good ol’ USA is bombed into submission and the population reduced to about 30%.

    It’s not only a Republic and/or fascism, it’s an Idiocracy. Americans are stuck on stupid, detached from anything not within their sphere of instant gratification and brainwashed to be useful idiotic subjects of the oligarchs. The ones who aren’t stupid and brainwashed are selfish, often to the extreme. So what if government does all of those horrible things, as long as they get their way.

    It’s what I like to call “The Glory of Rome Complex”. All empires fall though, right, Mr. Nimmo?

      How does it pay the money back? …with interest, using tax revenue on everything you, your children, your grandchildren, great grandchildren, great great grandchildren, great great great grandchildren, great great great great grandchildren, great great great great great grandchildren, and great great great great great great grandchildren do own or purchase.

      The US financial system is one of slavery, serfdom. …and another reason to stop voting.
