. SouthAmerica: Long before 9/11 I have been advocating on my writings that the United States should spend less money in military spending and the money should go instead into building and up-dating the infrastructure of the American economy. You can read on the following website where, in my opinion, the US government should be investing its scarce resources: http://www.asce.org/reportcard/2005/page.cfm?id=145 Besides the above areas of investment the US government should invest on a new generation of Shuttles with state-of-art-technologies and know how, and should send to museums the current fleet of Shuttles, because these Shuttles represent technologies on an age long gone. The US government also should help cities around the country to wire itself with state-of-the-art high speed Broadband technology. PLEASE stop wasting money on wars that the US canât win, and instead invest the money wisely in a way that will help many American generations in the future. REMINDER: As Americans are wasting a ton of money to try to project the illusion of military power around the world â the other major economies around the world are not wasting time and money instead they are investing its resources more wisely to help develop and support their economies of the future. Note: Today the American infrastructure is decaying so fast that it is like a bad joke. Here we are in the year 2005, and a little rain in the area 3 days ago, and parts of Bergen County (we are located right outside New York City) and up-scale towns such as Ridgewood, NJ, stayed without electric power for almost 2 days â just like in a third world country. And power outages are becoming routine in our area. What is going on? If this is happening in California and in the New York Metropolitan area, then the infrastructure of the rest of the country must also be going to hell very fast. This is not an infrastructure of a superpower it is the infrastructure of a decaying Soviet Union!!!! .
