Our Military is completely out of control; and consumes the better half of our national resources, i.e. money and manpower, with an ever more voracious appetite.

In the 70's and 80's Russia spent itself into the poor-house pursuing such fruitless goals of world domination.

Now we are ourselves, spending our own country into bankrupcy pursuing the same dumb and paranoid policies.

When the national enterprise is focused on killing people instead of education and raising the standard of living of our own, we are, by definition, a nation in the throes of self-destruction.

American Exceptionalism.......Yeah right. Exceptionally deluded and ignorant, maybe.
