    The rest of the world is wondering why Americans tolerate military adventurism at such a high level and why they ignore the collapse of our infrastructure.

    More incomprehensible is that during the recent government shutdown nobody mentioned a cut in “defense” spending.

    Diplomacy is the tool to resolve world problems – not brutality!
