The Costs of War: A Discussion (online event Sunday 10/25@4pm)

Zoom Panel and Discussion on The Cost of War

 
We have an excellent lineup of guest speakers and plenty of time for questions from the audience. 
 

All wars have large costs, which the political, financial, and governmental elites instigating the conflicts would rather the citizens minimize –but pay for. With a “volunteer military”, outsourcing, drones, and “smart bombs”, the war-makers attempt to hide the costs of war. The true story, however, is much grimmer.
