So what is the great threat we are facing?
I would approach this differently in almost Marshall-like terms. What are the great opportunities out there – ones that we can take advantage of?
Avoid war – and if that’s not possible, and it’s necessary to use arms to solve a political problem, then do it in a decisive way. You remove as much doubt as you can about the outcome. In addition, you need to have a clearly defined mission, and you must have some understanding of how it’s going to end.
