Alright then, let's check some stats.
Currently, 65% of afghan people do not want Americans there. Currently, almost 800 Billion dollars have gone into the war in Afghanistan. America is an invading country in a state where the state governors don't want them there, nor the people, so why are they there? That is a separate debate, what is clear from these two statistics is Americans have no right to be in Afghanistan, and are killing people there with absolutely no authority to do so. The next part, 800 billion? think that better goes into America's 17 TRILLION dollars of debt, don't you think? Most debt in the world by over 8 TRILLION dollars? Yeah not something to be proud of.
Please, find some way to tell me that 800 billion was well spent in invading a country when no one even wants them there.

Yes we may been spending way to much money to war Afghanistan. But it was all for payback against the 9/11 attack if we just let them slide other countrys would notice America's gone soft and wont do nothing if attacked. Plus we are known to be a superpower for spending so much money. Making other countrys not wanting to attack America cause of our great weapons. As for the debt we will slowly get out of it but for now America is mainly concerned about protecting its people which should be happening.

If one country funds on military, other countries feel powerless and pressurised so they will fund more as well. This has happened in history like the anglo german navy race. They're so many other things we can spend on besides of military...

As a non-American, your outrageous amount of military spending allows us to have a comparatively tiny military budget and allocate resources to better areas of use. Thanks for taking one for the team boys.
