The military-industrial complex is driving America to the poorhouse.

William A. Collins By William A. Collins

"Britain is considering selling an old aircraft carrier to business interests in China to reduce its military spending. What? Empires just don't do that. Well, they do when their currency is at stake, and U.S. arms merchants can feel the chill way over here. In fact we may already be too late to sell off our wares. Can any nation afford an aircraft carrier today? Maybe Goldman Sachs will foreclose on one."
India has the military-industrial complex all figured out. So does Saudi Arabia. Neither of them has one. Who needs to build weapons when you can simply buy them at a discount elsewhere? Not that anyone really needs so many weapons anyway, but it's still a lot cheaper to tap the competitive arms market...
