Ron Paul was interviewed and the title is a paraphrase of what he said. The arms race was over because the USA had won! The Soviet Union was broken up and the race was over.
The Soviet Union decide not to continue the arms race because the USA had clearly won. Business deals became the opiate of the masses of the people of the Soviet Union, because they included conditions me and millions of Americans are feeling now. Ron Paul was predicting we would go broke partly because of our defense budget.
After WWII, control of the skies was recognized as the ultimate military goal. Cyber war is significant, but need satellites.
If only we could trust our military, bypass politicians, but because the military agree, we can choose a better way, we alter things. The military immediately agrees to transparency that will not always be decided by "national security", secret decisions.The military should submit to Humanity, and we love one another, then handle the grey areas calmly.
