The military has a better reputation among conservatives than government in general. Yet, as with any government program, once the United States armed forces start doing something, anything, really, they keep doing it long, long after the reasons for undertaking it have passed. When you undertake to defend Germany, it is darn hard to return German defense back to Germany. The "entitlement mentality" runs as much to defending Iceland from its foreign foes as to government's handing out of food stamps.
