To get the scale of the Indian occupation, it has nearly one-million troops deployed in Kashmir. The US Armed Forces have 1,374,699 active personnel with 210,000 of them deployed in several wars. To pay for that, the US has to steal from the Social Security Trust, Medicaid & Medicare, food stamps, public schools, & the bridges & roads are collapsing. No wonder India can’t afford to build a modern sanitation system & poor people have to crap on the streets. Militarism is the very essence of capitalism in its barbaric phase.
