    After thirteen consecutive years of growth, between 1998 and 2011, spending on the military has reached an all-time high, and for 2012 Defense Secretary Robert Gates is asking Congress to authorize yet another increase, seeking $553 billion, plus an additional $118 billion for Iraq and Afghanistan, a total of $671 billion. Not only is the White House seeking more money; Congress--even with the deficit-obsessed, Tea Party/Republican majority in the House has so far refused to wield the budget ax against the Defense Department.
