Sorry darling that your college fund is messed up but if you really strain your brain hard enough you'll realize that America doesn't need a stronger army if their economy is down they need more negotiaters to make deals with countries so your economy rises through trade not making other countries and your own economy fall through war.
It would benefit America if they started with the problems surrounding teenagers because they are the future of the economy.
I live in Africa and I say that there are people starving here but there's nothing you can do about it because if other countries donate money for food aid the corrupt politicians here would use it for expensive cars. For example the place I live "Swaziland" has the highest AIDs infection percentage in the world and the king who rules here is driving a car worth millions of rand instead he could have used that money to buy ARVs for the country or spend it on campaigns against AIDs.
Another thing is my mother is the head of the AIDs department here and she works so hard to help Swaziland and when she does something that betters the country other people take the glory but she doesn't care as long as Swaziland becomes better.
We need people like my mother to be here not soldiers and one amazingly frustrating paradox is that if you pump money into corrupt nations governments to help their people the politicians will use it for their own improvement while their country falls into chaos.
