Radical Defense Budget Proposal

American tax payers are kicking in $439 billion in cash and IOU's per year for our national defense. I don't think we are getting a very good return on our invetsment.

As it turns out I'm not alone in that feeling. A whopping 76% of people who USA TODAY asked: In your opinion, would you say the world today is more dangerous than at other times in your life, about the same, or less dangerous than at other times in your life? said "more dangerous".

Dewey Counts, at Kos noticed this and offered this radical idea that I enthusiastically endorse.

Here is the proposal:

There are 193 countries in the world. That is 192 potential foes that we have to defend ourselves against.

Why don't we just give each of them $1 billion per year not to attack us? That leaves $247 billion to just party with. I'm feeling safer just thinking about this.

UPDATE: A Saudi King is all over this concept. He is already giving Lebanon $1.5 billion and I just wrote this post two minutes ago.
