Ike hit the nail on the head there. It's about time we looked at all the military spending as wasteful. Is it really necessary to spend more money on our military than the next 11 countries combined?
Who is a threat to us right now?
The Islamic State? False! What capability do they have to attack The United States? Sure they were able to brainwash some our our citizens but they haven't been able to send their people here. Do you really think a angry terrorist is really going to go through a 3 year wait to get here as a refugee? You're out your mind if you think so.
The Syrian Government? No.
North Korea? Heck they can't even build a missile that can get off the ground! The people of North Korea can't have lights at night. The leader Little Kim is just a punk. Seriously what can they do against us? The idea that North Korea is any kind of threat to us is a lie; a lie that playing into the hands of Little Kim and the Neo-Cons over here.
Back before Dwight Eisenhower left The White House as President he warned of The Military Industrial Complex.
