    I don`t even know what this video says yet, but Cajun posted it and it is presumably about how we spend way too much on defense without making ourselves any safer.

    I AGREE!

    I`ll watch it now....

    The Unites States government totally fails to understand and appreciate the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of thermonuclear weapons.

    OldOllie...do you mean that one or two dropped in just the right place(s) would be enough to throw the country into an utter state of higlity piglity?

    -----

    100% wrong. How does iran make the US its "bitch". Simple really. Russia and CHina are very close allies of Iran.

    And 99% of US politicians/military strategists know that if the US attacked iran, a day later, there would be no more US.

    Just a pity Romney doesnt understand this,

    Education is not simply a function of how much you spend. This can and should be applied to a lot of things today. Money solves everything, right guys? Wrong.

    Tegdp. It`s a pity you don`t understand that what you wrote is not accurate.

    Draculya. No. Those countries wouldn`t be able to hit the United States. North Korea`s missiles are barely even functional. We fear they would bomb Korea or Japan, democratic nations that are our allies.

    "The Unites States government totally fails to understand and appreciate the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of thermonuclear weapons."

    or how the more money they spend on weapons to kill random people in other countries, it has less money to spend on things that the electorate vote it in for... like i dont know, free heatlthcare or support for the elderly. you know the kind of stuff that really matters to our lives.

    Don`t say you weren`t warned when you get dragged into yet another one of America`s great military quagmires.

    Really... you can throw all the money you want at failing school systems and they still fail. How do I know? Because we`ve been doing that for years. Same holds true for just about everything else, poverty, drugs, the stimulus, green energy, you name it. I`d rather be more than prepared to defend ourselves because their are a lot of nutbags out there across the world.

    @papajon0s1 thats how you break a nation! Uneducated people that only can prove themselves fighting.
    Sounds good to begin with, but it does not help you in any way when your country starts falling behind technology and financial wise..
    Even suggesting to intentionally go for a uneducated people with guns, Genious.jpg!

    I wonder if the topic explanation, "Military strength is simply not a function of how much you spend." is true. Would the same logic apply to Schools?
