The Way of the Nuge

More from Ted, White, and Blue: The Nugent Manifesto, emphasis mine:
A wise man once said that if you want peace, prepare for war. If you would be so kind as to indulge Gunny Sgt. Nuge briefly while I slightly modify this otherwise brilliant statement: if you truly want peace, give the ***holes of the world a 2,000-pound, laser-guided bomb for lunch. Lasting peace can only be achieved through the application of relentless and superior fire power. No Rodney King, we cannot all just get along.

Good people are nearly fed up with negative, dangerous ******** like you, and I say it's time to drop the proverbial hammer. Straighten up, or deal with our righteous wrath. No more tolerance for evil choices. I wage war against evil in my life, and I say it's about time America goes full on crush. Each morning I bown down on bended knee in reverence to the Almighty and offer a humble prayer for good bombing weather. Let us all pray for good bombing weather. The history of man is one of warfare, not peace. Read that again. Now that may upset the leftover delusional peaceniks out there, but a quick study of history will tell you that warfare is mankind's modus operandi; always has been, always will be. This is reality and I deal in reality, not utopian superlatives. Doped up, logic-challenged peaceniks and their foggy ideologies are dangerous. "Give peace a chance" will get you killed. John Lennon was wrong. Imagine that.
To my mind, the two biggest ingredients in peace are 1) being entirely too dangerous and unproductive to mess with, and 2) not messing with others. The second is harder to achieve when you are the world's biggest market and overall economic power (hard as that may be to believe right now); it is hard not to inadvertently mess with someone's world when your hiccups make it quake. But the first should never be abandoned; it is the biggest part of the Swiss recipe for peace and it has served them well for a very long time now.

One of the most dangerous parts of the coming Obama administration will be, in my opinion, if he keeps to his promise to dramatically cut military spending and work toward nuclear disarmament (either whole or partial). If he actually does this, I think it likely that it will produce less peace, not more.
