You need to open your eyes buddy and start reading some political and history books.. Your whole perspective will change..
We discussed this briefly in another thread and I don't think he has the mindset you think he does. The point he makes is that because we are such warmongers and allies can always count on us coming in guns blazing, they don't invest in strong domestic military. They basically leave that up to us (smartly) and spend their money elsewhere.
By trying to be the world power, we essentially pick up the military tab of a lot of countries.
