George W. Bush's approach to military spending is essentially a higher-priced version of what went on under the Suharto regime in Indonesia, in which corporations connected to the military and the President's inner circle had the inside track on lucrative government contracts. And there's now plenty of money to go around. The military budget has increased from $300 billion per year to more than $400 billion annually since George W. Bush took office. And the invasion and occupation of Iraq will cost at least another $200 billion over the next three to five years.
