America and its entire NATO are at war against Russia in the battlefields of Ukraine, and (though its Government and news-media claim otherwise) are losing that war like they did against Afghanistan, and against Libya, and against Iraq, and against Vietnam, and against China, and against Korea. Even without the assistance of America’s colonies in Europe (NATO/EU), America spends (in fact, though not in the jiggered commonly published American propaganda) 17 times as much annually on its military as does Russia: $1.5T in America, versus $70B annually in Russia. How can this be?

Like that “$1.5T” link explains, America budgets lots of its military spending to be spent from Departments other than its Defense Department, such as from its Homeland Security Department, Treasury Department, Energy Department, and Veterans Affairs Department, so as to enable its propaganda agents, such as the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), to publish ONLY the Defense Department’s expenditures for comparison with other nations’ total military expenditures (which are far more honestly reported than America’s), and so to make America’s seem to be a smaller percentage of the global total than is really the case. Thus, for example, SIPRI states that “US military spending reached $877 billion in 2022, which was 39 per cent of total global military spending,” and that, “Russian military spending grew by an estimated 9.2 per cent in 2022, to around $86.4 billion.” Whereas that Russian figure is honest, the American figure is a blatant lie, because it’s only the Defense Department’s budget, NOT the full $1.5T of military spending in all Departments (like Russia’s, and other nations’, figures, actually are). In reality, America accounts for 50% of global military spending, not 39% as SIPRI alleges.

Where is all that excess American money going?
