MMM1, I am not sure what this message is about but it looks like you have reported me to Yahoo. I don't understand why. I simply stated my opinions that countries who spend too much money on weapons and defense, risk neglecting domestic problems and therefore risk collapse due to domestic problems. Think about crime, drug problems etc. For a recent exmaple of this, look at Soviet Union and how they collapsed because of huge money they spent on weapons..In the US, defense industry is one of the strongest interest groups.
