-The post-9/11 wars have caused military contracts to increase to their highest levels since World War II.
-Pentagon spending has totaled over $14 trillion since the start of the war in Afghanistan, with one-third to one-half of the total going to military contractors.
-The military is not a tool for coercive "diplomacy."
They are people.
-We must implement wartime contracting reforms. Defense contractors have too much influence.
-Congress must reassert it's war making responsibility. The Executive Branch is not Constitutionally allowed the wartime powers it currently has.
-No more military adventurism. Let the Department of Defense focus on just that: defense.
