ENDLESS WAR: Pentagon Demands Budget Increase of $842 Billion to Prepare for War Against China
The Pentagon is demanding a budget increase of an astounding $842 billion in order to prepare for war against China, even as they are already waging a costly and counter-productive proxy war against Russia in Ukraine.
Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley confirmed to Congress that their federal bureaucracy needs more money to plot war against China.
Milley spoke out of both sides of his mouth while defending the $842 billion proposed Pentagon cash grab. He told Congress that the figure “is extraordinarily expensive,” but claimed “it’s not as expensive as fighting a war. And this budget prevents war and prepares us to fight it if necessary.” He added that China is “moving it down the path toward confrontation and potential conflict with its neighbors and possibly the United States.”
“This budget includes a 40 percent increase over last year’s for the Pacific Deterrence Initiative to an all-time high of $9.1 billion,” Austin said while speaking before the Congressional hearing. “That will fund a stronger force posture, better defenses for Hawaii and Guam, and deeper cooperation with our allies and partners.”
Big League Politics has reported on how the military-industrial complex is sending hundreds of millions in weapons to Taiwan as World War 3 begins to take shape:
“The Biden regime has agreed to funnel hundreds of millions into Taiwan to prepare them for a potential conflict with China.
The U.S. State Department announced that they are selling Taiwan missiles for F-16 fighter jets and other weapons coming to a total of $619 million. This will only goad China and risk another dangerous and costly proxy war for the U.S., similar to what is going on with Russia and Ukraine right now.

The Pentagon stated that arming Taiwan “serves US national, economic, and security interests by supporting the recipient’s continuing efforts to modernize its armed forces and to maintain a credible defensive capability.”
Congress will ultimately have to approve the deal before it can go through, but considering how owned by the military-industrial complex all of these lawmakers are, it is expected to be little more than a formality…
The military-industrial complex is putting the world in grave danger. The decadence and hubris of the U.S. Empire is reaching new heights. This is the exact opposite of what the Founding Fathers intended when they wrote the Constitution and created a Republic.”
The intervention regarding Russia is already backfiring spectacularly for the U.S. Empire, and intervention in Asia against China would likely be far more disastrous. This ridiculous budget increase for the Pentagon must be rejected.
