Unlike usual approaches to military expenditures that concentrate on foreign affairs, this paper analyzes a strategic structure for a dictatorialgovernment to plan military expenditures concenrrating on domestic affairs. Then we find two dilemmas: The dictatorial government may spend less on military equipment if they have some destructive devices and then citizens may have relatively larger disposable incomes in exchange for military oppressions; and the dictatorial government increases military expenditures as their economy grows to sap revolutionary interests. Based on these results, I also make some closing discussions.
