Am I missing something or does the article focus on the 2% of GDP benchmark and then illustrate absolute spending in that pretty chart? Interesting.

The utility of NATO defense spending arguments -- or rather highlighting the perennial violations of the spending agreement of NATO, is in its justification to dissolve NATO and make the MIC field their own private BizDev creatures, rather than cloaking them in yet another abuse of public charter, private profit enterprise.

And that’s not even getting into the overarching problem of how much FUSA GDP is driven by debt-fueled military spending in the first place. Ouroboros is a hungry ghost.

The public balance sheet, or more accurately the continued dilution of public treasury notes, private profit extraction model of Our Economy needs to be rolled back to pre-NewDeal/WW2 looting phase.

Of course that means a lot of discomfort to go around.

It helps our economy. Both the president and a whole bunch of congress critters told me so. WAR IS ECONOMIC SUCESS I wonder if “they” will preach the same bullshit when war comes home to FUSSA.

Jan 18, 2024 was last government “ shutdown.” Lawmakers must reach deal for shutdown before March 1, 2024 deadline. Wowsa! America is riding on flat tires

I don’t know of any other government where its representatives enter at middle income and come out millionaires! They legally steal from taxpayers! Enough!

The flag of the old Soviet Union was lowered at the Kremlin for the last time on Dec. 25th 1991. On that day the USSR officially ceased to exist.
There simply is no reason for NATO to exist. Washington, get the U.S. the hell out of NATO. And while you’re at it, get the U.S. the hell out of the UN too. America is bankrupt; fiscally, morally and spiritually. The people are sick and tired of your damned evil empire and we refuse to support it any longer. The empire is finished. It’s time for America to become a normal nation again, if we can manage to salvage what’s left of it.

Here is the plan to throw the Palestinians out of their homes to live in the Mt. Sinai Desert in tents. That’s 1.4 million Palestinians that will have to run across the Egyptian border. And look at the trickery done to Egypt. Hell on earth.
