Defense and military funding for the United States have continually increased since 1964.

Interceptor Crisis (1982)

The US and USSR reached another face off in 1982 as the fleet of US Air Force Interceptors rolled off the assembly line, only to face of with Russian Okhotnik craft. For the period of 30 days from November 14th 1982 until December 13th, 1982, the USA and USSR were the closest since the Cuban-Missile Crisis to mutual annihilation.
