The Trillion Dollar U.S. War Budget


“Given the specter of nuclear war, the rational policy is one of de-escalation… Time has proven that coercion doesn’t work. There’s an urgent need to hit the reset button on U.S.-Korean policy, before one of the players hits a much more catastrophic button that could lead us into a nuclear nightmare.” Medea Benjamin of Code Pink

The same can be said for U.S. policy with Iran, Russia, Syria, China, etc.
