U.S. Military Spending.

Here are several ways of looking at the costs of U.S. militarism - to U.S. taxpayers, U.S. society, and the world.

  • The FCNL Military Spending Page: The Friends Committee on National Legislation has an analysis of the federal government's military spending for FY2004, our most recent fiscal year. 
  • The War Resistor's League Pie Chart: WRL includes non-annually budgeted programs in its figures, which significantly shrinks the amount for military spending. But it also calculates in the percentage of the national debt which is military-related, which brings the military budget percentage up to 48%
  • U.S. Military Spending vs. the World: The Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation has a table that shows the U.S. military budget compared to the budgets of other selected countries.
  • Oreo Cookie Budget: True Majority Action has a breakdown of the military budget using Oreo cookies. It puts a practical but positive spin on the troubles of the U.S. budget and what we can do to change it.
