no where in history has peace and freedom beem succefully purchased, it is won and protected by superior militaery. political and economic tactics.Why is it so hard to understand that the best way to make US a safer place is to help other countries.
i can only speak for this one American citizen when i say, The American society may have many flaws but it has many more positives.
The US would be foolish to believe it could buy it's way into a peaceful existence. if money was the way to peace we would have peace. Clearly it is not.
So i must act how many other countries on this planet have armies?
Why do they maintain a military force?
probably not to protect their charities.
