Articles: The Decline and Fall of American Deterrence
It just baffles my mind how so many people can be ignorant of history, and of human nature, and think that if you just “hope and wish” for peace that evil will stay away from you. Of course, there are those that think the military is a “republican” thang, or a conservative flag-waving thang that spends money that could be used for “peaceful” thangs.
But what they miss is that without peace or freedom to begin with, there is no opportunity to do the “thangs” that they wish to do that have nothing to do with the military. They forget that “freedom is not free” and the price that has been paid on the fields around the world to keep not only America free, but so many other people throughout our brief, glorious history.
It must be that anti-bully thang. If we have a strong military then “we” must be the world’s bullies. However, history teaches, if you want peace, prepare for war. Si vis pacem, para bellum. Bullies? Are you serious? Are you frick’in kidding me?
