The US is broke. That's why we're cutting social welfare programs to poor folks here. That's what they tell us, anyway. I nearly froze to death, no superlatives, last month in coldest temperatures on record. I was declined Low Income Heating Assistance, which would have purchased enough fire wood to keep me comfortable. Instead, I am being notified my electricity (and, therefore, my internet: my ONLY access to the outside world) will be cut off at the end of this month, unless I pay ONE THIRD of my monthly income. I do not have the money. Neither does the US government. Money for just ONE of those missiles could probably keep this entire community warm for the rest of our lives!
And what about Yemen, Bahrain, "Saudi" Arabia?
