The 99% vs USA Militarism and Wars of Exploitation

Saturday, December 17, 2011 - 12:30am

A talk by Elliott Adams, national president of Veterans for Peace.

"We can start balancing the budget by cutting defense in half or 2/3 or 3/4 there will still be more than enough for defense. If we want jobs switch from defense spending to heath spending - health creates ten times more jobs per dollar invested than defense...." -- Elliott Adams, President, Veterans For Peace
