House Overwhelmingly Approves New $725 Billion Military Spending Bill

http://news.antiwar.com/2010/12/17/house-overwhelmingly-appr...

The US House of Representatives today overwhelmingly approved the $725 billion military appropriations bill for 2011, by far the largest single military spending bill in the history of mankind.

The 341-48 vote saw vast majorities of both parties supporting it, and was referred to by officials as a “stripped down” version, despite its impossibly large pricetag.

GDP

At least this will be a contribution for the GDP in the short term and keep a good number of jobs afloat.

Most of the materials will probably never be used anyway.

"Surely you have something better to export than your military?"

-famous pianist Krystian Zimmerman, protesting the US's involvement in his country Poland, at his final concert in the USA.

Apparently, Congress disagrees. Why have an economy based on production when we can simply steal from around the globe? We'd have to be downright SILLY to WORK when we can just KILL and TAKE.

SteveMT's picture

Ugh: Undeclared wars are Unconstitutional.

These wars must be ended. There is no victory to be won.

oh

You know we are going to take out NK and Iran and very soon im afrAID

Yes

Washington has to keep that war machine running!! Just need all the world to know they will stop at nothing to continue the illegal wars and hell.... start a few more.
We have allowed our government to become so much worse than Nazi Germany.
The msm keeps up the terrorist hype and fear tactics so the lowly brainwashed watchers will stand and applaud any military action taken.
I am not sure as to why they have to keep attacking other countries. If it results in WWIII what will have been accomplished?

As far the as North Korean

As far the as North Korean situation goes, the US would likely provide arms and possibly sea/land/air-based backup for any airstrikes the South decides to carry out.

As far as Iran goes, I don't think there is a chance of anything happening soon. They are risking a possible attack by Israel, however.

South Korea and North Korea are at each other's..

...Throats again and our own CIA was who lit the flame between the two nations. They clearly don't like each other.

I've always said the nation of Korea is complex so they should split off, declare themselves separate countries. You know, since one has a very different idea of government than the other. I just doubt both of them can last naming themselves Korea.

Coming War

This should not surprise anyone. With the economy as bad as it is and the bond bubble and US dollar bubble about to pop they will soon take us to another war. The Federal Reserve is itching to start WW3

and guess how Our Doc voted?

NAY!

yeah!

http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2010/roll650.xml

Along with Jeff Flake (R-AZ), John Duncan (R-TN), and Kucinich, all of whom have consistently voted against the wars & occupation.

The Doc's close friend Walter Jones (R-NC) seems not to have been present. but won't hold it against him, as he's come around to Dr.Paul's view, at least in terms of being against hijacked-US Gvt's insane foreign policy.

those four Congressmen, above all others have been the Doc's consistent allies on most of his issue platforms. good to see they're staying principally consistent!

caveat:

to be absolutely specific, for those whom may not be too familiar, Flake has come toward the Doc's stance: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeff_Flake#Political_positions

Yeah they are staying consistent alright...

Probably because their constituents got doused with cold water. The districts they are from used to be the highest concentration of Christian Zionists in the nation, dominionist families included.

Bit by bit they have been un-brainwashed and attended Tea Parties to the point of unwinding themselves. Took a long time but it's proof that anyone who has been turned into a zombie, has more than an opportunity to leave the matrix.

Eventually the truth wins out..

"Eventually the truth wins out.."

always does.

always.

though, that's not to say the road getting there would be painfully bumpy.

3 examples please

At least one will do.

I hope my congresswoman

I hope my congresswoman tucked in an earmark that supplies my entire district with guns, cos we're gonna be needing them soon, the way this sh*t's going down....

Don't people realize that we

Don't people realize that we have blood on our hands? At this point are we really any better than the Germans during WWII?
It is beyond words. I just feel shame for my country.

they don't care if they have

they don't care if they have blood on their hands.. they are out to make money. They don't care who dies in order to make that good ol buck.

The only salvation...

in this fiasco is education; the slow process of dripping water onto rock. Education of the mind, body and soul is our only and effective weapon. I'm happy that over 40 voted against.

Assert Your Authority

....

.......

damn, that is some evil shi7.

Does that include

The protection money we have to pay the Taliban or would that be in a supplemental?

Nope. That includes Hamad Karzai's entire vault...

....With a good red cherry left on top.

good point

...and yet another thing is the so called "black budget" we don't even know how much money goes to wars and other criminal activity in that way.

What will we pay for that stuff with? Seashells?

I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm reaaaaly starting to lose hope.
