Rocky De La Fuente on War & Peace

 

 


Stop failed exercise of nation-building

We should extricate ourselves from the failed exercise of nation-building--trying to impose democracy on countries that may not choose to embrace it or may not be ready to build upon it from a cultural perspective. I would like to see us be less active in that regard. We also must protect our citizens. If we are assaulted by a hostile entity--foreign or domestic--or if there is a clear and present danger of such an attack, then we have every right to defend ourselves.

Eliminate ridiculous waste, inefficiency in military budgets

We should eliminate the ridiculous amount of waste and inefficiency in our recent military budgets. There is a disgraceful relationship between our politicians and the military-industrial lobby. Our government's authority to "provide for the common defense" is fundamental. If the threat to the United States is immediate or impending (as in the case of "confirmed" terrorists), we have the authority to address it. If the threat is hypothetical, then we must exercise well-measured restraint.

Increase intervention in Iraq and Syria beyond air support

Q: Should the U.S use military force in order to prevent governments hostile to the United States from possessing a nuclear weapon?

A: No.

Q: Do you support increased American intervention in Iraq and Syria beyond air support?

A: Yes. The threat to the United States is immediate or impending (as in the case of "confirmed" terrorists), we have the authority to address it. If the threat is hypothetical, then we must exercise well-measured restraint.
