Military-Industrial Complex

"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex." - Dwight D. Eisenhower

Military-Industrial Complex, the percieved relationship between government and defense, was the phrased used by outgoing American President Dwight D.

The concept rings through today as defense powerhouses continue to grow in influence and governments continue to spend in their march towards war.
