‘What if US military force were proportionately more like that of other nations? ... Our military would still be strong enough not only to defend the United States from attack, but also to deter attacks in the first place. But such a military would not be so world-transcendent as to make us think that brute force, exerted by America alone with token support of other nations, is the solution to every international problem — including the contemporary obligation to protect civilian populations from mass attacks."
