According to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, the USA's spending on its military is down to 42% of the entire world's spending on military. I don't know whether this is a consequence of America already cutting military spending, other countries increasing military spending, or the lowered American Dollar. Or any combination thereof. Or something else.
I don't think that reverance or respect for the dead needs the dead to be hidden from sight completely. It is the attitude that you bring, as a witness to a dead body, that matters, not the display and witnessing of a dead body, per se.
