Essentially... Numbers. An army's success is related to the number of recruits within.. All the weapons of the military can't accomplish a thing if there's an inadequate amount of soldiers to operate them.

Just another (keyboard) pecker

That's true, but not the whole story. It also depends on how well those recruits are trained and equipped.

As well, a great deal depends on how well those soldiers are deployed. Strategy and tactics. The quality of officers and leaders. For example, Patton was a brilliant military strategist. But he was defeated by politics. If not for that, I suspect we would not be having the problems with North Korea we're having now because there would be no North Korea.

If a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, then that makes me a burning truck filled with TNT hurtling through a rocket fuel depot.

Kill them if they disagree with you.

I don't wish to be argumentative ,but I disagree with the Islamic belief that I should be killed! " If radical atheists decided they needed to kill believers to ensure their place in nothingness, I'd be criticizing that too."

Control of the people by force.

If people fear the goverment, that's tyranny; if the government fears the people, that's liberty...Thomas Jefferson

There are no strengths. Even strength is not a strength without accountability. Imagine in our bodies, if our immune system took over that would be comparable to a government by the military. When the life and environ of a country is defined by defense and preparedness for war, eventually they will seek war to justify sustaining such leadership. You might even put the watch dogs away for some guests. You wouldn't think of replacing yourself with attack dogs to greet all guests? If not, why do you capitulate to live in a neighborhood where you are perpetually defensive? American Exceptionalism has made the world a safer place. We Export that rather than curling up in reclusion to just working out with weights neglecting our intellects and ability to influence. American Exceptionalism has made the world a safer place.
