Summary. Below is a video presentation by Dennis Kucinich that offers a brief introduction and overview regarding the amount of money the United States is spending on war.
We’ve spent over $3 trillion on the war in Iraq and over $500 billion and counting in Afghanistan. In Libya, we’ll soon hit $1 billion in spending – on a war that raises lots of questions but has not received any debate or authorization from Congress. The Pentagon now takes over half of the discretionary spending of our budget. And the United States is the largest exporter of arms in the world.
