It doesn’t take a genius to realize that building and maintaining a strong military is one of the most important things that a country can do for itself. Throughout history, countries that could successfully defend themselves were much less likely to be attacked. Those with weak militaries were left vulnerable.
The United States possesses the strongest military in the history of the world. Much of the rest of the world hates us, but who is the first country they call when they’re under attack? That’s right, us. Having a powerful military is a wonderful deterrent to attack, both for us and for our allies.
So, why in the world would a country such as the U.S. want to weaken itself militarily? It makes absolutely no sense, but that’s what the current administration has in mind with its proposal to reduce our nuclear arsenal by one-third. That’s a dramatic step, but there have been plenty of smaller ones that also add up, including financial cuts and making the military a low priority compared to the administration’s pet domestic programs.
What’s going to happen if we continue to voluntarily weaken ourselves militarily? In addition to the obvious – our enemies will step up their attacks both here at home and against our interests abroad – joining the U.S. military is going to become a much less attractive choice. And we all know what that eventually means – the reinstatement of a military draft. Why we have to keep battling on issues of common sense I’m not sure, but that’s the way it is now.
What do you think will happen if the Obama Administration succeeds in its goal of weakening the U.S. militarily? Will that embolden our enemies to become more aggressive? Will it result in fewer Americans wanting to make a career out of the military? Will it lead to a military draft? I’d really like to hear what you have to say about this.
