A "defense only" military strategy is a recipe for failure and increased costs. Rather, we should minimize defensive postures and maximize attacks on the enemy centers of power. Here Stossel conflates two entirely different and distinct things: destroying government through invasion, and creating a substitute government through nation-building. The military should be run in accord with free enterprise principles. This is not a new idea, but apparently it is new to Stossel.
