Relying too heavily on military solutions

Excerpted from National Priotrities Project.
Currently, federal spending on these three strategies is heavily weighted toward military operations. In fiscal year 2005, as shown in the graph, almost nine dollars was spent on the military for every dollar spent on all other non-military security tools combined.

Why so much reliance on military as a solution to national security? Simple, it is the most expensive and most difficult solution to regulate. In other, a convenient money pit for the military industrial complex.
