Was "Defense" a lie during the Cold War?
Was "Defense" a lie during the Cold War?I believe that offense spending (calling it defense is a lie) is where the biggest cuts need to be made.
What was the provocation that justified any war we have been in since WWII? Every single one has been a waste of money and lives. The only real provocation I know of was the destruction of the world trade centers. That was not done by another government and only killed a few thousand people. Was that worth the billions we have and are wasting in Afghanistan? I can understand attacking the Taliban but we should have been out within months, not years, with the clear message left behind that we were willing to come back and kick their arse again if necessary. We go in and never leave. Our military spending is weakening us, not strengthening us. Nation building with our military is a crackpot idea.
I believe we are destroying this country with military spending and policies when we should be building it.
