Mark Stewart on War & Peace

 

 


I firmly believe that Right makes Might

Q: Do you support or oppose the statement, "Avoid foreign entanglements"?

A: See my Wage Peace argument above. But be willing to preserve Americans' lives and lifestyle against terrorists. Where we are right, and we have the capacity to exterminate evil, i lean toward doing so. I firmly believe that Right makes Might. We are the sustained the biggest*-and-best armed force in part because we use it for good. When a wealthy country can extirpate evil and free many people in the process, I believe it should do so, at least on a small scale. For large scale "nation-building" I believe we need a referendum. But that's down the road, after we first get our domestic house in order. When we become a domestic model. we have even more going for us in our ventures abroad.

* Yes, China has more men under arms. But if called upon, American volunteers fighting for liberty (I'd never draft Americans) would exceed China's military in the first month.

Declare war on Boko Haram in northern Nigeria

I have given Boko Haram, an evil organization, an ultimatum, If they don't heed it while Obama is president, their terms with me will be a lot worse. If they have not returned the kidnapped Nigerian girls, and made restitution to families of them and the boys they slaughtered, by THIS September, come January 21, I will go to Congress and request a declaration of war. If for some reason I don't get it from the remaining quislings in Congress, I will issue private letters of marque and reprisal against Boko Haram's leaders and recruits. They will face the fury of American goodness against their evil. And yes, though I'm not especially fit, I will be on that first flotilla "to the shores of Tripoli."
