JOHN KERRY’S WAR: SYRIAN STRIKE MEANS BIG MONEY FOR LAWMAKERS
A report by the Department of Defense states that the unit cost of a Tomahawk tactical missile costs $1.5 million.
Barak Obama, the Nobel Peace prize winning president just added the Syrian people to his kill list this summer and it is a defense contractor’s dream come true. Wall Street has rewarded their lobbying efforts with a positive uptick.
For example, according to Reuters, Raytheon generates more of its revenues overseas than any other large U.S. weapons maker. It has forecast a 20-percent increase in foreign bookings in 2013.
Congress loves the defense industry too because of their lobbying efforts and campaign contributions.
