But a lot of people seem to think that American military might is like one of these power rings. They seem to think that, roughly speaking, we can accomplish absolutely anything in the world through the application of sufficient military force. The only thing limiting us is a lack of willpower.
As I wrote in 2004, over at Brooke Oberwetter's old blog:
Alas, I doubt that the neocons who are so keen on national greatness will ever learn. The above brings to mind a pet theory I've had for a few years: that when it comes to the military, conservatives sound just like leftists: it's always a lack of money or will that causes the failure, not any intrinsic flaw in the ideas behind it.
