Im sorry to say, but one of the "roles" of beeing a rich western country(especially if you bomb the hell out of another), is that you need to help rebuild countries, to prevent stuff like terrorism happening, and i personally believe that if spent correctly can have a very positive effect on things.
And 100 million dollars is just a drop in the ocean, i would rather ask yourself i you really need a (i think its) 200 billion dollar defense budget, instead of using some of the money to fix things that are broken inside your country (poverty etc.)
And regarding the ~300K Dkr i earn a year, its by no means a high salary, i think a normally family income with two "workers" is around 500.000K.
Unfortunately i decided to work in a goverment paid job, and the salary is nothing cheer about, i know people who work for ibm that make 700.000K just for working with mainframes.
On the other end, they pay highend taxes, and my 40% will in their case be something like 52%, for every Dkr over 305.000 earned a year.
I wont say im actually happy about paying so much tax, especially because things like fuel and cars, are highly expensive here too, a gallon of 95 octane fuel costs 6$. And a car costs 3!!!(three) times the amount that it would cost in sweden or germany, who are our closest neighbours.. an BMW 530i costs around 1.200.000+ dkr, a peugoet 407 stationcar, costs 500.000
But i can surely see the benefits of a high tax too.
