US overspents in military defense, remember Eisenhower:
US needs to cut on defense and Europe needs to increase on defense budget, like decreasing overall operational means but increasing quality in technological operational means. Example It´s better 20 Eurofighters than 40 F-16, and better prepared pilots.
"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist." http://www.npr.org/2...-50-years-later
