The thing is the whole US defense budget is based on the idea that projecting force prevents war...and in all likelihood has done just that...the problem is that instead of simply projecting force, it's also driven violence in conflicts we had no place in. We put our noses in other countries' affairs because Russia (or some other scapegoat) was putting their nose in the area...that's a BS excuse...the real reason was the military budget was in danger of getting cut and they needed a reason to keep it funded at high levels...so war...we start fights where we can, butt into other fights where we can, "keep peace" where we can because we can...and because we do, we are able to keep blowing trillions of dollars on stupid causes...and the human cost is unfathomable.
