Cold War spending

I just checked out the Center for Defense Information Web page and it's very
interesting. They do a good job exposing the wastefulness of US military
spending. Their fact of the week shows that the US military spent 12
trillion, 800 billion dollars on the cold war from 1948 - 1991.

I wonder what percentage of that was used to push anti-communist ideology at
home and abroad? Gives pause as to the scope of the enemy and its influence.
