How can a strong military by numbers prevent the US from assymetric war attacks? The war on Iraq/Afghanistan weren't the first wars/revolutions in the middle east/asia the US took part.

National defense is one of the few important responsabilities that .gov has. How does sending billions of dollars in foreign aid to countries that hate us benefit the citizens of the USA?

If the US would aid the money to education and development of those countries instead of having huge amounts of footsoldiers you'd get rid of those hateful people.

Al-Quaida recruits 8 years olds from families, because they cannot afford their kid. The US should try to make those kids openminded. Build schools, create chances for those people you war against instead of killing them. They'd be grateful if their outlook in life would be something else than opium farmer or suicidebomber.
