The ironic thing is, if this was any other country in the world, our own reactionaries would be campaigning against the obvious threat this kind of spending implied.

They'd say that any country building a military so clearly out of proportion to any possible threat must be planning to impose it's will upon the entire world.

And they'd be right.
