MILITARY and VETERANS AFFAIRS
The Military-Industrial Complex
HELADA recognizes the wisdom of former President Dwight Eisenhower in warning against the excesses of a 'military-industrial complex'. With the clarity of hindsight, we perceive that this complex has grown to constitute a substantial component of the US economy.
Now, in the early 21st century, the
influence of arms development, manufacture and sales drives US
foreign policy to the role of empire building. This is against all the
US has stood for in the past and must end now.
