Considering how colossal our military is, it seems like America's goal is to be the biggest, baddest country in town. Sadly, spending every penny we have (and then some) on the armed forces doesn't even do that very well. How long can a country last without the resources provided by education? The days of bullying smaller countries around is drawing to a close, and if America wants to continue to be a major global player, we've got to get ourselves educated. That really goes for any country — the fastest way to worldwide stardom is through education, not a military campaign.
