RE: Is it wrong for the USA to be militaristic?
I think the best way to fight Al Queda is to completely disregard it. To give your citizens even more freedoms and even more individual rights. Facilitate even more general financial opportunities for your people and even more pathways to excellent, dynamic and interesting education, available to all.
In short, to breed an invulnerable democracy and don't stop for anybody.
Much less to fix a world that doesn't like what you believe in.
It's a mistake to need oil from the middle east. You can get to the Moon, find another way and let them degenerate back to slingshots and sabres. When India finally nukes Pakistan they're all going to die from the fallout anyway.
You know I even had this Indian guy try to tell me his cultural perspective that India had developed the first martial arts in the world and were the true warrior race of human peoples.
And don't ever underestimate the CIS. Ukraine has the greater bulk of Soviet cold war surplus and Russia can still field thousands of brand new MiG's whenever it feels like it.
Just because Communism no longer thinks western Europe is a rogue state needing a bit of discpline, doesn't mean they think democracy is cool bananas.
And China thinks it knows better than everybody but clings to medieval philosophies like a barnacle.
North Korea...well they've just plain figured everything out. Don't try to tell them anything.
To think the US doesn't need a properly organized and funded military is a bit ignorant. But to level it at the middle east thinking terrorism is being fought is equally.
driving a fast car should feel like falling off a building.
