Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Where's the money going to come from?

Seriously.  The Bush administration and the GOP (neo-lib, conservative) dominance of economic policy over the last decades has gutted the US.  There isn't enough money to fight two wars, maintain a global military presence, bail-out the financial sector, pay for the weapons systems now coming on-line, and re-supply & equip the Armed Forces.

America is full of money. It just has to be... redistributed.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.

The money is and has been redistributed: from the population to the oligarchs.  More monies thrown at the military would only acerbate this and the other economic problems the US is experiencing.
