    I'm sure all the millions who lived because of "blindly throwing cash" at the armed forces are mortified that we ever dared to do such a thing and would rather be dead, how do you sleep at night safe in your bed knowing the hegemony you despise allows you to do so?

    What was the Jewish population of Europe in the 30s, let's forget all the other untermensch? Or what it is that causes the longest periods of relative peace in history? I'll give you a couple of hints: rather a lot, and not weakness.

    You're contribution to this debate - that we need to spend all this money to prevent another Holocaust - has been noted.

    This is a motion to reduce spending now? Ah, yes, moving the goal posts means you can ask for the unprovable to be proved.

    well, if you'd like me to avoid moving the goalposts: prove that increase spending makes us more than negligibly safer.
