America's Dangerous Rush to Shrink Its Military Power

The strange, suicidal conviction now fashionable among the elite is that the customary vast reserves of power with which America
maneuvers in the international system and, in extremis, wields in its defense, have become irrelevant to security and detrimental to the economy. All across the country, children are growing up who, in the fire next time, may pay for this prejudice with their lives. For a nation that has lost the unapologetic drive to defend itself cannot escape the consequences no matter how deft its self-deceptions or the extent to which, in contradiction of history and fact, error is ratified by common belief. -- Mark Helprin: - WSJ.com
