The United Stateís defense budget is 1,449 trillion dollars this year. The rest of the world combined spends another trillion. Its time to reverse the trend. If only 25% (nearly 500 billion dollars) of the people working on defense were put to work on improving living standards such as desalting water, improving solar cells, or improving food growing procedures, etc. some wonderful discoveries might be made.

It now appears that warring behavior is a kind of mass paranoia or psychopathology induced in some people by solar and geomagnetic activity twice every eleven years when the solar activity is rapidly changing as it ascends to a peak or descends a few years later. It is starting to ascend now (early 2010). The enemy is not them or us, it is the Solar activity! And with knowledge and forewarning people can choose. When a solar storm is brewing people can prepare to be careful, and choose to act differently. There is no need for a huge defense budget, for more and bigger weapons.

Itís time to disarm!
