Jack Ma points out that the US has wasted $14 trillion on wars.
Since the Vietnam war, more than 45 years ago, the US has embarked on a neocon strategy of war in an effort to build a global empire. The result of that strategy has left American infrastructure second rate, its school system in shambles, and its healthcare system a complete and utter joke.
Just imagine what America could’ve done with $14t of investable dollars, instead of waging wars.
Aside from the wars, America spends more than 50% of its discretionary budget on the military, per annum, 16% of its overall budget.
And the neocons are trying to stir up another one, with Russia. Why? For what? Wag The Dog? And that doesn’t even count the other futile wars, like the “War On Drugs.”
