The Antimiltarist Candidate

Antiwar.com links to Matthew Gault's piece on a candidate who, "[i]n speech after speech, he has called out politicians and defense contractors for colluding to build costly weapons systems at the price of national security" — Donald Trump is right about defense spending – and that should scare you. The author's conclusion:
    In a political climate full of fear of foreign threats and gung-ho about the military, it could take a populist strongman like Trump to deliver the harsh truth: When it comes to the military, the United States can do so much more with so much less.
