Military Tricks 

01 Jan

By Arvin Vohra via Facebook 

The military’s favorite PR trick: bragging about non-military research.
The military loves to brag about the medical, computer, and even environmental research they are spending your money on. It makes PR senses. Presenting itself as the site of science research (with your money) is bound to be more popular than presenting itself as the people who bomb hospitals and weddings (with your money). 
But the fact is, much of that is either minimally related to the military or entirely unrelated to the function of the military, which is the defense of America and nothing else.
How can the military help the environment? First, stop bombing foreign countries. Second, stop building things we don’t need. Those big expensive planes that the Pentagon doesn’t even want take a ton of energy and materials to construct. Medical advances? Realize that foreign hospitals work better when you don’t bomb them.
We don’t expect NIH researchers to waste our money by taking shooting lessons. Why should we expect the military to waste our money on militarily unrelated research?
The military has two jobs.
1. Protect us from foreign armies. Domestic terrorism is a police issue, not a military one. As a nuclear power, we do not face any significant threat from foreign armies.
2. Stop making enemies. This job they have failed at miserably, as they continue to radicalize foreign nationals by bombing and occupying their countries.
Given the size and expenditure of our current military, given the fact that they have extra money for unrelated research, and given the fact that there is no military that could threaten American security, it’s time to cut the military budget by 90% or more, and then reduce taxes accordingly.
