Whilst many may relish America's military might and escapades around the globe would America and its people be actually better off if it retreated from this stance? Spending trillions that it has not got on wars and weaponry at the expense of so many other programs would not the country and the people be better off if the money was used for the betterment of the country. The US could still be militarily strong regionally and for defense. Has said such expenditure and foreign wars actually made Americans, safer, stronger or better off it would not appear so. I 'm sure there must be many Americans who now think that the meddling in the affairs of others has done nothing for the country or its people. Would it matter that much if the US was not top dog, (or so it thinks) would the people not feel happier and better off for having free health care, good education, less crime and a sustainable future. Or is the country so far gone that it cannot return to being more insular that war and more of it is the only thing that is keeping the country afloat? For all the lies that are told to the American people there does not appear any contender for invading the country any time in the past or for the foreseeable future. How long can the bogus WOT be sustained and at what cost to the nation and its people.
