We might disagree on some things, but on this one I agree with you. Our whole culture and economy has become too militarized. We cannot solve every world problem with military solutions. This is not to suggest that we shouldn't be engaged militarily but only as a last resort. And we don't need all those military bases all over the world. President Obama, Secretary Hagel and indeed our Congress seem to oppose any cuts in military spending citing the need to support our troops. The best way to support our troops is to bring them home.
And we don't need all those expensive military "toys" either...retool those manufacturing plants and spend the money on goods that help society as whole.
