Aside from the fact that our military has been the proving ground for the bulk of new technology developed in this country, which we now use everyday - I'd rather have it and not need it, well you know...

If we had listened to the Fizzes of the world in 1940, we'd all be speaking Germanese.

I think our military could use some revamping though. Iraq has done that to a certain extent, but I think the Navy should move towards more multi use platforms. Would be cheaper and more efficient.

what "new technology" was developed that couldn't have been done by directly funding it at less cost?

and for every new alloy that comes out we blows billions on gay bombs or turning tanks into moving tesla coils or money hole anti-missile systems or some poo.

the MIC is so entrenched that dismantling it on a piece by piece basis is fairly impossible.

if anyone is in to watching documentaries is pretty fantastic, free, and goes into this very well. it includes commentary from retired military officials, current ones, air force pilots, journalists, and chalmers johnson from the original post.

everyone go out today and check out/buy nemesis, especially if you want to hear a very well informed, reasoned, and put together argument against all of our military bases.

An argument against ALL of our military bases!?! WTF, are we supposed to NOT have a military? Is that what you're getting at? As for wasteful spending, the whole goddamn government is full of wasteful spending...take a look at the "stimulus" package Pelosi and Co. put together for a clear cut definition of wasteful spending.
