U.S. DEFENCE SPENDING, ONE TRILLION DOLLARS-WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?

THANKS TO CALL ME ISHMAEL
The U.S.A.'S DEFENCE BUDGET IS NOW ONE TRILLION DOLLARS. Want to see what that looks like? Well it is 10,000 pallets of $100 bills, as represented in the picture above. The figure bottom left is a person standing, so that you can get the perspective.
AND WE CAN'T, (I include the U.K. and NATO in this), beat some rag arsed, bearded Taliban with no equipment, in Afghanistan.
FUCK ME!

DL - If they start winning wars they'd have to cut the budget. Cannae have that.

As always both sides are being run to maximise the steal.

Most of that chunk of change is paying for contracted out war services. Only a miniscule amount will be paying for food and water for the ICBL involvded.

ALL the rest will be buying islands and water, propaganda and art work.

Heads up.
