Biden’s Budget Proposal Funds Most of the World’s Dictators 

Biden’s Budget Proposal Funds Most of the World’s Dictators   https://davidswanson.org/bidens-budget-proposal-funds-most-of-the-worlds-dictators/ MAY 27, 2021 BY DAVIDSWANSON

There’s nothing new about this, which is why I know it’s there before having seen the new budget proposal. The United States funds most of the world’s most oppressive militaries, sells them weapons, and trains them. It has done so for many years. But if you’re going to propose an enormous budget that relies on deficit spending, and you’re going to claim that a gargantuan military budget (bigger than the Vietnam War budget that derailed LBJ’s domestic priorities) is somehow justified, then I think you ought to have to stand and justify every bit of it, including the 40% or so of U.S. foreign “aid” that’s actually money for weapons and militaries — first and foremost for Israel.
