You're the expert, what is that limit? How does that fare with China building a massive navy as we speak?
I don't know the history about Switzerland, but if Hitler had have won, how long do you think it would have held in the face of the third Reich?
Maybe Ambassador Stevens tried his best to bring the golden rule to Libya.
The Navy is specifically authorized by the Constitution. Maybe you can tell us why that is?
What's wrong with each state having a National Guard(militia) that, in time of need, can be Federalized to defend against an attack? Isn't that what the Constitution says?
Why do you think the Founding Fathers specifically mentioned and funded a permanent Navy but required a vote on funding for the Army every 2 years?
Maybe because as Jefferson said, "Standing armies lead to taxes and taxes lead to tyranny"?
