I read this last night after reading this thread. A very in depth article.

The Tragedy of the American Military: The American public and its political leadership will do anything for the military except take it seriously. The result is a chickenhawk nation in which careless spending and strategic folly combine to lure America into endless wars it canít win.

An example: The F-35 military aircraft has cost as much as the "wars" (Iraq / Afganistan) at around 1.5 T$
