Wars Sending US into Ruin

Wars Sending US into Ruin by Eric Margolis

"Washington's deficit (the difference between spending and income from taxes) will reach a vertiginous $1.6 trillion US this year. The huge sum will be borrowed, mostly from China and Japan, to which the U.S. already owes $1.5 trillion. Debt service will cost $250 billion.
To spend $1 trillion, one would have had to start spending $1 million daily soon after Rome was founded and continue for 2,738 years until today.
Obama's total military budget is nearly $1 trillion.
The Pentagon now accounts for half of total world military spending.
If U.S. taxpayers actually had to pay for the Afghan and Iraq wars, these conflicts would end in short order.
It is increasingly clear the president is not in control of America's runaway military juggernaut."
