Is the military too big?Go read this article at the National Summary if you think it is. I hate it when facts get in the way of the radical lefty agenda!
When you look at the list of nations please notice how all the EU nations are absent from the top of it. This is why we had to go jump into the Yugoslav conflict. They couldn't cope with even poor little Yugoslavia, right in their own back yard, without help from the "oppressive, hate mongering yanks". Military allies without a military are not a great deal of help.
