The U.S. Military...because of some very recent positive results of Super High Tech. Weapons....is about to completely restructure our Military. This is driving Lobbyists to create the NEWS as talk of China developing a Large Naval Fleet is dominating the conversation as these Lobbyists bend the ears of Politicians who have Large Corporate Military Suppliers located in their Home States.

The reality is that due to this Quantum Leap in U.S. Weapons Tech...specifically the Free Electron Laser....the New High Powered and Long Burn Solid Rocket Fuel along with Super Computing abilities that have changes a very good Carrier Defense Missile into a Highly Accurate Long Distance ABM as well as it's ability to be a Satellite Killer as was recently demonstrated....and the MEB or Microwave Emitting Beam which is still Classified but known to exist...these Ultra-High Tech. Weapons have made many systems no longer needed by the Pentagon.

Still...Lobbyists are running amok in an effort to save programs that are now obsolete. It is the hope of many who see this tech as a way to lower the cost of the overall Defense Budget dramatically. It would be a shame that we would end up spending money for unneeded Weapons all because some Congressman gets a good deal of Campaign Money from some of these now unneeded Firms.

The U.S. in 2012 will spend 4.7% of it's GDP on our Military. Since the U.S. is the Worlds Largest Economy this adds up to alot of money....$711 BILLION. In actuality if you take other concerns into account. The total amount of money the U.S. spends could be as high as $1.3 TRILLION. It all depends how you add specific things.

The U.S. Military's BLACK PROGRAMS budget is enormous. It surpasses every other nations in their totality.

Still...4.7% is a small percentage considering how large the economy...even though it is in a down turn...truly is. This is why a good upturn could very quickly balance the books. It has happened many times in the past...it will happen again. Split Infinity

Figures and source?

Example

The classified budget of the Defense Department, concealed from the public in all but outline, has nearly doubled in the Bush years, to $32 billion. That is more than the combined budgets of the Food and Drug Administration, the National Science Foundation and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

The ONLY data or information to prove this budget is to find $500 Hammers and $1000 Toilet Seats! LOL!

You are trying to get a source to prove our total funding of BLACK COVERT PROGRAMS. You will not find these figures other than ESTIMATES by perhaps JANE'S or other published Military Budget sources. Still...these are just ESTIMATES.

By the definition of a BLACK COVERT BUDGET...that means it is Highly Secret and is not something the U.S. wants anyone to be able to easily access. Split Infinity

Yea, ole Donald Rumsfield told us that 2 trillion got missing out the people's coffers. So we know it's a ridiculous amount.

That's how those projects are funded.. they just find the money

Right, the source would be reverse auditing the total Pentagon budget in order to find the missing totals and estimate it. Other than that you get into Iran Contra Mena, Arkansas coke money etc sort of stuff, oh yeah and the United Fruit Co. HAHAHA can't forget that scheme, that one is classic. Tally Me Banana

And, split, if you ever watch this movie




in its entirety the subject known as Jon Roberts claims at one point that he was a member of the Republican Inner Circle and they, RNC power players, didn't care he was a coke dealer... he claims anyway. I believe his claim.

In my experience...which is vast...I know that necessity or need of a person or item will over rule other considerations. Split Infinity
