Who want to keep funding "unnecessary" Social programs that our economy cannot sustain.
And cutting Defense/Military Budget would be like committing Harry Carry at this juncture and climate of Geo-Political chaos, turmoil hostility and nuclear unrest.
And who gives a damn what the OTHER "next 10 highest countries combined" do? Who exactly are the "highest countries" any way?
Isn't it shocking that Saddam Hussein's caravan of trucks moving out of Baghdad into Syria smuggled his Bio-Chemical Weapons, WMDS, into Syria ??
The Bush Administration certainly allotted Hussein ample time to load that convoy and ride those WMDS out.
Plenty of warning. Perhaps ol' Bush was smarter than given credit. He didn't want Hussein's troops using those Chemical Weapons on Our American Soldiers.
Your question is moot.
<quoted text>In case you haven't heard we're broke. Spending 600 billion+ per year on the military, more than the next 10 highest countries combined, is getting a bit out of hand no?
