The US Navy has announced that it developed a synthetic slimy material that can be shot to seal mouths of their enemies — and much more — by studying a snake-like fish that controls and kills enemies. With part of its multi-billion dollar budget, that consumes over one-third of all taxes paid by Americans, the Navy researchers studied and replicated the creepy hagfish’s built-in slime weapon that it shoots at sharks.
When attacked, hagfish shoot a slimy substance at their enemies. That slime can seal mouths and clog gills of their enemy. Now, the US Navy has figured how to synthesize the slime – an achievement they say could do everything from repelling sharks to providing ballistics defense.

The Navy’s 2017 funding submission includes $17.3 billion for research and development supporting the Navy-Marine Corps team of the future through technological advantages designed to counter adversaries in all environments and across all spectrums. The Department of the Navy budget includes a $55 billion (Base and OCO) request for operations and maintenance, emphasizing the balance of today’s needs with future priorities when operating forward in an ever-evolving security environment. That budget is part of the $583 billion (Base and OCO) defense budget President Barack Obama submitted to Congress the same day.
“With politicians increasingly wedded to the construction of advanced killing technology as a result of lobbying by defense contractors and arms manufacturers, the U.S. economy is becoming more militaristic than ever,” states “War Is A Lie” author David Swanson.
“The most common justification is that we cannot allow America to ‘become weak.’ We face too many threats around the world, our super-patriots proclaim, and any sign of scaling our militarism will be a green light for ‘terrorism.’
People making the claim that our “defense is lacking” are either, as Bill Maher once but it, “lying or insane,” asserts Swanson.
“The reality is that ‘the United States spends more on defense than the next seven countries combined.”"

“The idea that there are credible threats to the United States that can be met by spending more money is nothing more than sly tactic used to justify these inflated budgets, further enriching corporate executives and creating more of what we don’t need,” says Swanson.
“The public has to be riled up into jingoistic hysteria every several years, otherwise they would not tolerate the fact that their tax dollars are being used to develop advanced weaponry that not only does not help anyone domestically, but also devastates lives and entire countries overseas.”
Swanson calculates what could be done if military spending returned to that of 2001:
If U.S. military spending were merely returned to 2001 levels, the savings of $213 billion per year could meet the following needs:
- End hunger and starvation worldwide — $30 billion per year.
- Provide clean drinking water worldwide — $11 billion per year.
- Provide free college in the U.S. — $70 billion per year (according to Senate legislation).
- Double U.S. foreign aid — $23 billion per year.
- Build and maintain a high-speed rail system in the U.S. — $30 billion per year.
- Invest in solar and renewable energy as never before — $20 billion per year.
- Fund peace initiatives as never before — $10 billion per year.
That would leave $19 billion left over per year with which to pay down debt.
You may say I’m a dreamer, but this is life and death. War kills more by how the money isn’t spent than by how it is spent.
