Military strength and preparedness are the bedrock for an exceptional national security policy here in America. Military strength and preparedness act as a deterrent to the forces of evil around the world that seek to do us harm. When America is strong militarily, the world notices and makes decisions accordingly. The same thing happens when we are weak. During the Obama administration the entire world knew that we had a weak Commander in Chief at the helm. As a result, liberties and encroachments were taken by our enemies. For example, Russia waltzed into Ukraine and annexed Crimea- supporting and funding an anti-government faction to destabilize the country. Evidently, Obama was willing to show some “flexibility” to allow Putin to navigate. We should never show any of our cards to our adversaries. In another example, Joe Biden has also decided that negotiating with terrorists is okay and the Taliban can be trusted!
The components of military strength are wide and varied but include some of the following vital characteristics:
· Believable articulation of military strength by leaders in government
· Supreme care of our veterans who served with dignity and honor
· Recognition of our veterans commensurate with their service distinction
· Deliberate and proportional military action when our national security is breached
· Allowance for military leaders to be relevant with real decision-making authority
· Support for our allies when their national security interests are impeded
· Aid and support for selective causes of freedom in regions that impact our national security interests
· Increased military spending (peace through strength)
· Exceptional recruiting, training, and placement of our armed military personnel
· All viable military options available against rogue nations trying to gain nuclear strike capabilities
We have the most dedicated military force in the entire world and we need to take the measures necessary to support their resolve to keep us safe. A strong military will help bring the United States of America peace and prosperity for generations to come!
