SURPRISE! PENTAGON COULD BE GIVEN $640 BILLION TO KILL MORE CIVILIANS

Nowhere near enough!

Demand that The Pentagon be given more, much more, to kill more civilians and plonk more missiles and build more bases to surround Russia and China to provoke WW3!

Faced with a massive military spending increase proposal from President Trump, and a Budget Committee which expected to well exceed even that, the House Armed Services Committee has decided to outdo everybody by advancing its own $640 billion base budget.

The sequestration figure for the spending budget is $549 billion. The sequestration figures, of course, have always been circumvented at any rate, but President Trump’s $603 billion proposal was far above the usual levels of excess spending. Even then, it was quickly attacked by Congressional hawks as insufficient. The Budget Committee was expecting this to be settled somewhere around $621 billion.
