New wars, new coups, new rulers, new CIA/NSA operations help to get US companies more new lucrative contracts, more World Bank /IMF slavery nations
(that end up buying "construction projects" from American companies), and more strategic interests and more arms sales.
What does giving money away to veterans help?
It gives a tiny boost to spending of groceries at Walmart, much of which is imported anyway.
A lot less impact on government lobbying interests, economy and new jobs.
So, the politicians do what their masters (military-security-complex + industry lobbies + NPAC + the rest of the lobbyists) tell them.
How big is the veteran's lobby? How much money do they have for campaign contributions?
Don't make it an ethical question or cry out foul, when it is purely and only a business transaction for the politicians and other parties
I'm not saying it _should_ be so nor that I condone this type of activity -- merely just explaining the decision system and balance of power as it
How can you change this?
Change the whole political system (not just the politicians, it is not enough), change all the lobbying laws and its enforcement (probably requires
changing the whole corrupt US judicial system) and change the way the corporations are run.
Pretty tall order, but then again, what other choice do you have? Bend over some more?
Just calling as I see it.
