    We tried to before WWII, and that didn't work. It's odd that people still seem to think that it will work now.

    It worked great right up until December Seventh, Nineteen Forty-One then we had reason to go and clean someone's clock, guess we'll have to wait for that suitcase nuke to detonate on the observation deck of the Empire State building before we can justify:

After WWII, the US was the sole remaining superpower, and we had the Bomb; more importantly, we had the Marshall Plan to rebuild Europe and Eisenhower to get us out of Korea. After Ike we had a sex-crazed drug addict for a couple of years, but we had a reputation that kept him from getting the country into too much trouble. The next guy felt the need to play Texas Ranger to the world, and it took another adult (Nixon) to get us out of Vietnam. After a couple of years of caretaker government, we got another clown who really did a number on our reputation and became the benchmark for incompetency in the White House. Then Reagan came along to restore our standing, and that really upset the liberals who can't stand to be on the winning side because it contradicts their worship at the altar of perpetual victimhood. Bush41 did a good job on foreign affairs: he went into Somalia to provide humanitarian relief, and when that went so well that libs started hollering for "nation building" he resisted them; he also understood diplomacy, and when our allies in the first Gulf War declined to go all the way to Baghdad he stood with them against the war hawks in this country. Clinton managed to convince the world that the US was now a paper tiger, and the result was 9/11. Bush43 responded properly to the terrorism attacks, but he got bogged down in nation building when what he should have done was burn Afghanistan and Iraq to the ground and leave the survivors to go back to their traditional practice of molesting goats. The US doesn't feel the need to be the strongest, but it was nice to be respected. The clown we have in office now understands nothing of diplomacy or power, and seems determined to remake the country in the image of his native Kenya.

    I am pro-military. But not the way it's defined by those that are anti-military.

    I am pro-strength. But with strength comes responsibility, and more importantly restraint.

    I am pro-military action. But only in the defense of the United States from an attacker, either response to an attack as a prohibitive response to a KNOWN threat; or in defense of the defenseless from aggression and/or genocide; or as response to assist our allies in the very few treaties that we are actually signatories to.

    I am pro-Constitution. In that the power to declare War rests solely and squarely with the Congress of the United States, and just like any other member of the United States Armed Services, the Commander-in-Chief has a superior officer they must report to and follow their orders. That superior officer is the American People through their Representatives in the United States Congress.

    I am pro-American Government regarding military actions. In that the United States is a Sovereign Nation and does not and must not subordinate that Sovereignty to any other country, or group(s) of countries (the UN).

    I have many other pro's regarding the military, but I think you get the strong position upon which I stand regarding the military, and my fellow members of the All Volunteer Armed Forces, that every day, write a check to the American people, payable up to and including their life.
    Great post. I agree with all of what you wrote.
