I’ve seen a few articles like this.
If you are a logical thinker, you realize that beefing up the military is not, in itself, an action that is likely to lead to war. On the contrary, a strong military is a deterrent to attack, which decreases the likelihood of war. Especially if our enemies know that we are slow to attack, but deadly and effective when we do—they will not risk attacking us.
The Democrat way, which is to weaken the military so that it cannot act effectively, while finding all kinds of excuses for military action, is exactly the recipe for war. It is that kind of misuse of the military that emboldens enemies and encourages them to become increasingly aggressive and belligerent. This is why the Middle East is so unstable, and we have so many attacks and attempted attacks in the US. They don’t think we’re strong enough to stop them.
Perhaps some of the “pacifists” are beginning to understand the real meaning of “Speak softly and carry a big stick.”
