Our military is really good at that. They're not so good at extended occuplation and nation-building because WE (mostly the left) don't have the stomach for it. Also, our nation's attention and support for a military campaign is only that long - 3 months max. If done a few times (once is not enough), our enemies will eventually get the message and refrain from pissing us off.
On his recent trip abroad, Mitt Romney observed an American taboo by not criticizing President Obama's military policy. But before his trip, he made his position clear. Obama has "exposed the military to cuts that no one can justify," Romney said.

He meant that unless Congress intervenes, Pentagon spending will be cut by more than $500 billion over 10 years under the (bipartisan) budget sequestration scheduled for January. This terrifies those who fear that limiting the growth of the military-industrial complex will leave us less safe.

But is that true? Even if $500 billion is actually cut, America still will spend...
