As the old guy in Independance Day said "you don't really think they spend 5000 on a hammer do you" They also can sell equipment and there are really strong links to the CIA selling drugs to raise money to fund various covert activities.

If our military budget is only 3/4 of a percent of our economy, then i ask you:

What is the other 99.25% of our budget going? If our budget it that big, and military spending is that low, then I must wonder......

Where the rest is going.

Answer that, and you might be on to something.


Well, a bit more than the military budget is spent on Health and Human services programs. Also a bit more than that is for Social Security.Believe it or not, almost as much as is spent on the military is spent on interest to the national debt. Which we have been paying forever and have never been out of the clear to not have that bill. The rest is broken up into 22-24 other categories of much smaller amounts. In 2003 our military budget was 17.8% of the total budget. Health and Social Security are simular in size.




The figure is nowhere near 17.8 percent of gdp for the US its more like 3 and a half percent, check out this link:

GriBit never said that the military expenditure was 17.8 % of the GDP, he said it was 17.8 % of the total budget. These are two different things, the US is not a communist country and the government does not control all the GDP. The US's budget was $2.052 trillion in 2002 and the military expenditure was $399 billion, this works out to about just under 20%, so Gribit's number is pretty close to that of 2002.

Pentagon seeks $570 billion for 2010

The U.S. military wants an increase of $57 billion in the 2010 budget, a 13.5 percent increase over this year’s $514.3 billion budget. Outgoing Pentagon comptroller Tina Jonas told Bloomberg News this week that the jump is needed to try and get much of the current funding that has been provided in emergency supplementals, a looming target for congressional budget cutters, tucked safely away in the base budget. If the Pentagon can convince both the White House’s Office of Management and Budget and Congress that it’s truly desperate for more money, a lot more money, the resulting 2010 budget of around $571 billion would be roughly in line with the high-end forecast recently produced by the Congressional Budget Office of what DoD would need to carry out its current expansion and modernization plans. CBO’s low end estimate was $535 billion, based on the unlikely assumption that DoD would do what it never has been able to do: hold down cost growth in its acquisition and operations accounts.
