Brilliantly articulated and illustrated piece of American military historical description, from the American Revolution and Declaration of Independence of 1776, to the more current introduction of drone warfare.
Explains how the military-industrial complex looks after their own interests, through media and government budget decisions.
"The U.S. military budget is now larger that the next ten biggest spenders put together! It makes up a full 37% of total global military spending...with more than half of our income taxes going to military spending."
Easy to follow and recommended.

Scathing expose on military-industrial complex. Basically, jobs for their district to keep politicians reelected. Shows how billion dollars spent on other stuff for comparison.
