Rebranding military weapons programs as jobs..

It’s total bullshit folks. From Real News:

As unemployment in the US rises, old War on Terror appeals to national security are taking a backseat to economic justifications. The US military industry has adjusted to this new reality by crafting its requests for government funding on the basis of its capacity to provide employment. This despite evidence that military spending is one of the least effective means of job creation.

Don’t you just love ‘the spin’ of it all?
