Does the U.S. military need to be expanded?


My answer to Does the U.S. military need to be expanded?

Answer by Ken Larson:

Expansion in the form of manpower and technology for cyber warfare, low cost UAV’s and state of the art communications – yes.

But billions of dollars for F-35 aircraft and other politically engineered White Elephants is foolish while our countries infrastructure is crumbling. As the below figure illustrates we can carve a considerable amount of these excesses out.
