Comment: I don't belive so.

(See in situ)

I don't belive so.

I cannot put words into Ron Paul's mouth like this post has but in my own belief offense and defense are intertwined.

Cutting militarism and unnecessary military spending is a good defensive measure plus a good national economic plan.

If you spend too much on militarism (or offense) then sooner or later you are going to go broke trying to keep ahead of other States unless you go to war to try to even out the situation. If you react (or defense) to what other states do with their offense then sooner or later you won't have the knowledge or ability to defend yourself.

Your best defense and offense is a good intelligence service that can give good data that is not politically motivated and make your adversary spend themselves into oblivion with a false sense that they are behind you or are inferior too you.

hope for the best
