isn't putting forth a huge arms buildup, the only reason we spend so much on military now is because Clinton destroyed so much before, in the name of
a budget surplus and favorable approval ratings. He had no great wars like we have now, and so he perceived the military as useless, except where
public opinion mattered
Oh, this is an extra helping of crap. "Please, sir, may I have some more."
Why spend tax money as tho we were in a wartime economy when there is no damn war? So, yeah, he cut military spending. So what?
The only reason we spend so much now on military is because BUSH'S FRIENDS NEED TO GET PAID! We spend more on defense that the next EIGHT FIRST WORLD
