Nah I'm not one of those, but the fact that the U.S. military kicks ass keeps Americans at home much much safer from the prospect of war than many many other countries. People know that if they come after us, they'll get ****ed the hell up. That's been a powerful disincentive. You can argue that the secondary effects are bad or that it's not worth the cost or whatever, but the military has been very effective at keeping Americans safe over the last half century or so. No one but a fool denies this.
