What does military contracting tell us about the priorities of the U.S. ruling class?
If you go to the website Defuse Nuclear War https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0LbNPPhFJNw
Daniel Ellsberg will explain why land based ICBMs are dangerous. The nature of land based ICBMs is that they cannot be recalled once launched. On hair trigger alert, 400 are armed in silos in the Wyoming, Montana, Colorado and the Dakotas. These nuclear weapons were going to be eliminated, the military did not want them, but a coalition of congressmembers lobbied for a replacement ICBM.
89 Billion, yes billion to make a weapon the US military does not even want. A jobs program from hell.
This is really excellent.
