I don't know how anyone (especially you) can logically support the position of the broken window economic stimulus - especially when arguing in favor of an admittedly useless war

Seems like you are doing the precise thing Krugman cited in his response, i.e. creating a straw man that has nothing to do with the person and arguing against it.

Here's his point: Increasing military spending will improve the economy.
Do you read from that that he supports useless war?

How about this:
I say: scalding water will burn your hand.
Do you read from that I am in favor of everyone going out and burning their hands?

You are missing the point in large. There are numerous links returned to the search of "Krugman military spending" which return quotes which explain his position, which has nothing to do with him favoring useless wars.

On another point, Krugman has not been wrong on anything since the 90s.
