Eisenhower warned of the military-industrial complex. Those warnings were not and are not heeded. The result is a military budget that dwarfs any other country and has resulted in ships that cannot be safely used because of the lack of training of their officers, weapons that do not function, and lack of planning and resources that have cost lives. Pouring more money into a system that cannot track what it has let alone use that money wisely and responsibly is insanity. Trump doesn’t need a parade. He needs a good spanking. Denying him his parade, and drastically overhauling the military budget so it reflects the needs of the military rather than what Congress and the weapons manufacturers want so they can enrich themselves would be a start.
