    And all this time I thought that the USA with it's budget exceeding the whole of the rest of the world combined, on a per-capita basis, would easily out-do Israel, even my own Australia for that matter, on a per-capita basis. No, I'm not about to waste time looking this rubbish up statistically. Because all of these countries are totally wrong morally. At the top of the tree, how many Americans are on the food stamp lines? How many Americans are on the unemployment lines? As a world society, are we so insane that we pursue stupid, insane war-like policies which never benefit the ordinary "little people"? Oh, I forgot, they are systemically the "canon fodder", always have been, always will be, just continue their steady diet of BS to coerce them. Wouldn't it be nice if these vast sums were devoted to health and ecucation in their respective countries? A radical idea, some would say, "a most dangerous idea", a man with an independent thought? Isn't it high time the "so called" world grew up?
