Real Defense

Eugene Jarecki, director of the just-released documentary "Why We Fight" (winner of the 2005 Sundance Grand Jury Prize) writes about Dwight D. Eisenhower:

He understood that a country that allocates a disproportionate share of its wealth toward defense and away from other aspects of its national life is a country driven by an incomplete vision of national defense. In the final analysis, he understood that an uneducated country is an undefended country, that a country without adequate health care is an undefended country, that a country in debt is an undefended country, that a country without friends and allies is an undefended country, and above all, that a country whose people have lost faith in their leaders, is an undefended country.
