      sustaining itself with military spending this high??  that's an honest question.  because something that people never seem to address when this comes up is how we are going to keep spending this much on the military each year (actually, we increase funding with each budget) and survive as a country??

      this isn't something that can be dismissed by merely talking about the political concerns.  if the policy is suicidal, it is literally insane to just shrug and say "we've got to keep doing it in order to win."  how meaningless is winning going to be we've collapsed because we've spent all our resources on the military??
