06 Feb Do you think the best way to ensure peace is through military strength?
“”Peace through strength”” is an expression which suggests that military power can help maintain peace. It has been used by many leaders from Roman Emperor Hadrian to former U.S. President Ronald Reagan.
The first American President, George Washington, enunciated a policy of peace through strength in his fifth annual message to Congress. He said:
“”There is a rank due to the United States among nations which will be withheld, if not absolutely lost, by the reputation of weakness. If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure peace, one of the most powerful instruments of our rising prosperity, it must be known that we are at all times ready for war.””
