What else has to happen -- how close does war, with all its horrors, have to come -- before Congress closes the hatch on sequestration, before it eliminates the caps, whatever political compromises are necessary to eliminate them, and begins, in earnest, to rebuild the tools of power? (source)
Doesn't everyone think the U.S. spends too much on "defense"...?
Can you remember the date of last time foreign attack on mainland US?
In contrast, the picture below is more recent but unfortunately still outdated and as such incomplete.

We might strongly disagree on what a "foreign attack" means.
For example, the alleged foreign perpetrators were mostly Saudis, but the US did not declare war on Saudi Arabia. Instead, unrelated countries were torn into whole-scale war.
"We wouldn't want this to happen to you, would we?"
Is this quoting some devil or what? Your position is too undefined/unclear for a response.
By these standards you get plenty of aggression already, beyond the scale of all other countries in the modern era combined.
Provided that you define the UN as a US tool for aggression, I presume.
But perhaps more to the point, the US is logically beyond the scale of most countries on pretty much any metric. Is there a per capita metric for this kind of thing like for crime and births?
Why would I do that? Why should I conflate diplomacy with aggression?
Thus the USA has good reasons to increase its military spending continuously if it is determined to keep it that way and I'm sure it is.
So, RJ, goose-stepping is what you Eurphiles prefer...?
Indeed it is just as well humans have only two legs as your lack of smart drill would be even worse!
