How much will our “War on Terror” actually cost us in the decades to come and can we afford to keep solving international crisis through military action?
War is expensive, both in human and financial costs, but how much money are we actually spending? The pentagon budget, not counting wars has increased by about a trillion dollars over the last decade. We’re not even sure how much money the pentagon spends because it’s flunked its annual audit year after year. How much will our “War on Terror” actually cost us in the decades to come and can we afford to keep solving international crisis through military action?

Brave New Films Presents: The Henry A. Wallace National Security Forum moderated by Sonali Kolhatkar, host and executive producer of KPFK-FM’s Uprising Radio. In this forum we speak with career journalists, historians, scholars, and bestselling authors to get alternative perspectives on foreign policy and national security issues. Watch each episode and listen to the experts cover a range of topics from the origins of American imperialism to the current surveillance state.
Each episode of Q&A will help you gain a better understanding of the US approach towards national security and foreign policy not normally portrayed in mainstream media. Sonali and the experts unpack and get to the core of US foreign policy, privatized security, the occupied perspective abroad, and examine America’s calculated and destructive affinity towards war. The fate of country, and of all civilians, in the face of these pressing issues depends on us demanding better solutions. That’s why we’ve put together this forum, in partnership with The Wallace Action Fund, to provide a broad scope of knowledge that can help guide and bridge much needed discussion.
Henry A. Wallace was the 33rd Vice-President of the United States and served under Franklin D. Roosevelt during WW II. He ran for the presidency on the Progressive Party ticket in 1948 and was an agriculturalist, economist, author and businessman. Mr. Wallace was known as the champion of the “common man” in the struggle against the moneyed elites for control of government and the planet’s resources.
