Have a peep at yesterday’s piece for Foreign Policy In Focus, where he enjoins the Left and the Right to pare down the military industrial complex. An excerpt:
With its dispersed base of support and a built-in mechanism for distributing profits, the military-industrial complex is a tough nut to crack. Both sides of the aisle are reluctant to challenge such a behemoth. Democrats are afraid that curtailing military waste will leave them open to accusations of being “soft on terrorism.” Most Republicans, meanwhile, are willing to subsidize the defense industry even as they oppose saving the auto industry.
