Quote Of The Day

“European governments know they can rely on US military might and taxpayer dollars to subsidize their security needs and prevent them from actually investing in a more robust security apparatus. And when European leaders like Sarkozy decide to talk tough they can count on America to provide the military muscle to back up their words – as has been the case with Libya. The bottom line is that as long as the United States continues to feel that it has an obligation to underwrite European security needs . . . it will continue to underwrite European security needs. And European countries will continue to free ride off of US security guarantees and not develop the “right equipment” and strategy to protect and further their own interests. In the world’s most most stable and prosperous region we have created a bizarre situation where US resources and arms are underpinning a security structure that could quite easily be taken over by the inhabitants of that region!” — Michael Cohen

  • There’s nothing bizarre about it. US weapons manufacturers like it that way. Then they persuade our government to invest in even more weaponry to combat the weaponry they’ve sold to the rest of the world.

  • Jon is correct, its a self sustaining economy based on war, and we only sell the stuff that we can beat.
