Considering that every piece of hardware, right down to the bullets amounts to a government subsidy, this is a pretty safe bet.

The American economy depends on war.

Not really, it's only 4.7% of the GDP

Also, a fair portion of that is actually spent for other nations.

The German Government in particular is in no hurry for the US to depart its local bases.

It's why the American government spends so much time stirring the pot in various parts of the world. Destabilized regions fight with each other and need weapons, which the American industrial complex is happy to supply.

Yeah that's the plan. At least if you saw "Lord of War".
