I see it a different way. The draft is gone and is politically impossible to bring back. We're spending 4.7% of our GDP on the military, and that's about half of what it was during the Cold War. And then we can look at casualty figures and see that they've been going down for 60 years. Or the number of personnel that the Pentagon commands, which is millions fewer than it used to be. Or we could look at the figures showing that, While military spending is high, armed conflict around the world is not as common as it used to be and has been declining since the end of World War II.

The draft is gone because they don't need it. And the US spends more money on defense then the top 10 militaries in the world combined. And global conflict has been the same as always. While conflicts in Asia are down, conflicts in Africa are up. The number of people working for the Pentagon doesn't mean anything to me. Add that to the fact that Baby boomers started a war on terror which will never end because the Baby boomers are paid off by defense contractors and oil companies.
