Global Military Spending Hits High But Growth Slows

Check out the HuffPost article here

I remember reading a New York Times featured article about Secretary Robert Gates and others including Colin Powell suggesting that cutting Pentagon spending could help with the deficit (read my comment about it here) I guess that hasn’t happened yet. It’s pretty sad, considerin­g nobody seriously thinks that will be attacked by any nation in a full-blown military conflict (which is what the U.S. army is geared for, as supposed to Terrorism)­.

Many Americans are still under the false impression that a large part of whether they are viewed favorably abroad hinges on the side of the military they have. That would be true, if they wanted to be viewed with disdain.
