    world war two is what ruined America in my opinion, turned us into empire and ruling overseas American interests. the period just after world war two when military budgets dipped and then came back up with the red scare and Korean war, set the arc that continues to this day.

    when Obama ran and talked about change, I had hopes.

    a mere graph of military budgets since 1939 til now shows growth from a billion to 1000 billion.  I agree with your point that Reagan only tweaked it.

    mccullough's Truman is a very easy read on this subject.

    drones are a cost effective way of generating enough new terrorists that calls to cut military spending will fail.
