Even Ignoring Homeland Security, Bush Defense Budget Request $716.5 billion

My back of the envelope calculations place the Bush military budget at over two-thirds of total world military spending.

Do Bush, Cheney, and the neocons provoke wars to keep their military-industrial-intelligence complex contributors humming?

Should the United States be spending more than twice as much for our military as all of any conceivable enemies put together? When will this stop? Do you feel safer now?
