"There is no danger to Spain's security that require such investments, no attacks from other countries," Ortega said.
According to Ortega, the government buys very expensive weapons that have no practical use in the defense of Spain.
Ortega cites the uselessness of purchasing 87 Eurofighter combat aircraft worth 11 billion euros, some still in manufacturing.
"These fighters have never seen combat and never will because the United States already has aircraft of superior technology," the analyst said
Another example of waste provided by Ortega is 239 Leopard tanks, bought by Spain, for which it paid more than 2.5 billion euros.
"Spain does not expect any ground invasions where it would use so many tanks.”
The primary risk to Spanish security is terrorism, but this issue "is primarily internal and the government cannot fight it with the army, so these purchases are not justified," Ortega stressed.
"Morenes is the main defender of the military industry's interests," the expert said.
From 2008 through 2012 Spain experienced a deep recession and the worst unemployment rate in the Eurozone.
Although Spain's economy began to recover in late 2013, the economic situation in the country is still grave. Spain's unemployment rate rose to 23.7 percent in the fourth quarter of 2014, up from 23.67 percent in the third quarter, according to the National Statistics Institute.
