US Military spending is fugazi

Glenn Greenwald has a very interesting article on US military spending in 2008. These 2 points really struck me:

1 US pwns ($623B) pwns the REST OF THE WORLD ($500B)
2 The Iraq & Afghanistan wars "only" account for $150B of the $623B

Why don't we at least "fund" Iraq/Afghanistan by closing random military bases in peaceful rich countries? I think Germany & Japan can get by with out our bases there.

Kudos for a few Presidential candidates like Kucinich & Ron Paul for discussing these issues.
