Are America’s perpetual wars having the desired effect of enhancing national security? As USAF retired lieutenant colonel William Astore says “Terrorist acts are mostly the recourse of the weak when taking on the strong. The United States isn’t going to stop them by getting stronger yet.” While the new president’s appointments indicate not much would change from the Obama years, perhaps now is the time we can do something about unrestrained military spending. Inflating alleged threats is not making us safer and the heavy military footprint is greatly worsening climate change, which is a real threat. On this show, Astore offers a realistic ten point plan.
