The Pentagon is sending an additional 1000 troops to the Middle East as Iran grows more hostile. This is a good first step on a long journey. The response from the United States should be making an example out of Iran to deter future conflict with other nations. 90% of the fighter aircraft and bombers should be moved to the Middle East in a public display of force.
Then they should be used in a public display of destruction and used to cripple Iran’s infrastructure. At the same time, President Trump should send as many troops to our border as needed to stop the National Security debacle that is occurring on our southern border. As we say in special forces and law enforcement, “action always beats reaction!”
The United States is the most powerful nation in the world, no other country comes close. We should not be allowing illegal aliens to mock us by sneaking through our border at will. Iran and no other country should ever feel like they can take action against us. The kind of demilitarization and national weakness that the left desires were the same typing of thinking that allowed Germany to become so relatively powerful before World War II.
During this time, many countries were demilitarizing while countries like Germany were accumulating a very strong military. Military deterrence is the only way to achieve peace.
