War Premium Edges Aside Peace Dividend

Reuters reported:

US defense spending, pegged at $534 billion for 2010, excluding the cost of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, will be up 4 percent from this year and is not expected to decrease for the next few years.
That doesn't sound the least bit progressive. Add $50 billion slated for secret operations and America looks less transparent and accountable. America's black ops budget is ten times Iran's whole military budget. Any fight won't be the least bit fair.
