Military Budget

Nobody asked but …

How does the government appear to reduce the Pentagon’s budget, even when it is not?  Any experienced sleight of hand artist can tell you in a millisecond.  Separate the watchers’ gazes from the vulnerable behavior.  Debate bringing the troops home while increasing mercenary contracts.  Debate cutting wild-eyed research while sending it out to Homeland Security and the National Science Foundation.  Debate personnel costs while promoting the hiring of your most highly paid employees by the Military-Industrial Complex, and while sending others to non-Pentagon posts in the government aristocracy.  Pretend to care for disabled vets but put them in a separate budget at the VA.
