Our forbearance should never be misunderstood. Our reluctance for conflict should not be misjudged as a failure of will. When action is required to preserve our national security, we will act. We will maintain sufficient strength to prevail if need be, knowing that if we do so we have the best chance of never having to use that strength.

Experience has taught us that preparedness deters aggression and that weakness invites it.

I do favor pay and benefit levels that will attract and keep highly motivated men and women in our volunteer forces and an active reserve trained and ready for an instant call in case of an emergency.

The search for peace must go on, but we have a better chance of finding it if we maintain our strength while we’re searching.

Military Weakness Led to War June 19, 2009

Now, I realize that many well-meaning people deplore the expenditure of huge sums of money for military purposes at a time of economic hardship. Similar voices were heard in the 1930’s, when economic conditions were far worse than anything we’re experiencing today. But the result of heeding those voices then was a disastrous military imbalance that tempted the forces of tyranny and evil and plunged the world into a ruinous war.

Churchill’s peace, is in danger. It may serve us to look to the wisdom of his words. He said, and I shall quote him, “The peace will not be preserved without the virtues that make victory possible in war. Peace will not be preserved by pious sentiments expressed in terms of platitudes or by official grimaces and diplomatic correctitude, however desirable these may be from time to time. It will not be preserved by casting aside in dangerous years the panoply of warlike strength…. Great Heart must have his sword and armor to guard the pilgrims on their way.”
