Ever read about the Shah of Iran, partitioning of Palestine (which I agree with, but imagine if someone came to us and said that we needed to partition out land for a new nation controlled by native Americans, I understand why they are mad), Overthrow of democratically elected Mossadegh, giving WMDs (nerve gas) to Saddam, which was used to massacre Kurds, claiming to be neutral in the Palestine/Israeli dispute (I am not saying Israel is always wrong, just that we are obviously not neutral), Supporting brutal dictators in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, UAE, Oman, Bahrain, Kuwait, the Shah, etc.
Terrorism wont decrease if we cut defence. Terrorism will decrease when we stop supporting dictators in the middle east and stop antagonizing them with our foreign policy.
America is the strongest country in the world. Imagine how much Brock Lesnar would have to piss you off before you took a swing at him. We managed to incite nations obviously weaker than us to attack us, do you realize what that took? Basically raping them for 5 decades.
