Re: Military defense budget
the problem is with human nature; if a nation has a strong military the people high up in the government will find a reason to use it against their neighbors. sadly, instead of using ours against our neighbors to the south(who richly deserve it), we use it against people far, far away who are no longer a direct threat to us.
