Hawks Demand More Military Spending Than During Cold War: Stop Squandering 'Defense' Dollars on Other Nations

America accounts for nearly 40 percent of the globe's military outlays, but Republican Party hawks believe that the federal government never spends enough on the Pentagon. The war lobby's mantra always is more, much more. Yet the U.S. already devotes far more than it should to "defense," which today largely means protecting wealthy allies who prefer to spend their money on domestic goals. Washington should scale back its international responsibilities and cut Pentagon outlays accordingly.
