UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — The American CounterPunch magazine said that the United States was increasingly drowning in the debt quagmire, because of the US military industrial complex, government corruption and low efficiency of officials.
The ever-increasing spending on the US military is causing the United States to slip into bankruptcy, while the government and officials are constantly deceiving the population and demanding more funding for military needs.
The magazine cited the findings of a study by Open the Government and concluded that the US military was spending huge sums on non-military purchases.
For example, a single chair valued at $ 9241 was bought, a ceramic dish worth $ 53,000, $ 308,000 in alcoholic beverages and some $ 4.6 million worth of seafood.
The US government spends much more than its tax revenues and therefore has to borrow heavily from other countries. The money is spent on many government institutions and on the ongoing wars in the United States, education, health care and infrastructure, In constant decline.
It happened with Rome and now it is happening again with the American empire, which is already collapsing as we approach a critical situation, “the magazine said.
The magazine added that the United States spent since 2011 on wars abroad $ 4.7 trillion and confirmed that the country’s debt is increasing by about $ 32 million per hour and spends the government in Iraq every 5 seconds more than the average American citizen a year.
The magazine concluded that Washington has not yet been able to make the world safer. Every 12 minutes the US military bomb at a point in the world, and since 2001 killed in the world more than 500 thousand people because of the practices of the United States.
