    American influence in the world is in decline. Military spending and interference in other states affairs is costing the tax payer a fortune.

    You said, "why spend so much on military if theres no one to worry about?" <sic>

    You answered your own question. There is North Korea, China, Iran, terrorists, and even pirates to deal with. There's plenty to worry about.
