‘US in arms race with itself’

Press TV March 11, 2011

The United States is so obsessed with military spending that it is practically in “an arms race” with itself, says Laura Flanders, host and founder of the New York-based GRITtv.

“There is only one group of American society that is benefiting from America’s wars around the world: at this point it’s military contractors,” Flanders said in an interview with Press TV’s U.S. Desk recently.

The private military contractors are “eating up a total of $1.2 trillion every year from the U.S. budget and that is not anything that this country can afford,” she added.

“We are paying for it through the nose and we have an arms race now with ourselves,” she noted.

Flanders concluded that the “never-ending military budget is driving the U.S. economy into a ditch.”
