Peace Through Weakness

Read Joseph Klein's column about Obama's speech at the United Nations:
"'Shows of military force' and 'diplomacy' are not incompatible, as Obama seems to believe.  It is possible to engage in smart diplomacy while advocating a strong military to back up such diplomacy. Call it 'peace through strength,' as Ronald Regan did, or 'speak softly and carry a big stick,' as Theodore Roosevelt did. As President Obama’s speech at the United Nations demonstrated once again, his whole approach to foreign policy has turned this long-standing, common sense strategy on its head."
