Have we dropped our guard again? History demonstrates that previous military drawdowns invited aggression by our enemies. After World War I, America drew down forces until the U.S. Army had fewer than 100 thousand men in uniform. That weakness invited Nazi aggression in Europe and the Imperial Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor! Frank Gaffney Jr., American anti-jihadist, politician and patriot.
There are historic situations in which refusal to defend the inheritance of a civilization, however imperfect, against tyranny and aggression may result in consequences even worse than war! Reinhold Niebuhr, American Theologian (1892-1971)
