Oliver North's Column: The Next War

Retired Marine Oliver North visited the National Navy UDT-SEAL Museum and in his latest column he looks back on how budget cuts and a lack of military preparedness led to America's wars.

North is concerned about the upcoming major cuts to our Defense budget and how those cuts may very well lead to our next war  I share his concerns.

It is an unalterable fact of human nature that the perception of weakness invites aggression. For us, it has been that way since the founding of the republic. We disarmed after the American Revolution. That's how we ended up with the War of 1812.
