John McCain: The Eternal Warrior

Sen. McCain believes in increasing the presence of US troops across the Middle East to prevent the spread of radical Islam. He also believes the American people support his plan to garrison thousands of US troops across the globe for decades to come. There's a sure way to determine if the American people support his plan - revive the Selective Service System. If Americans truly believe in maintaining permanent military outposts across the globe they should support the drafting of thousands of their sons and daughters to staff those outposts.

"The mistake has been not so much to think that the power of the United States is greater than it is as to fail to realize that power itself, whether wielded by the United States or anyone else -- if conceived in terms of military force -- has been in decline. By imagining otherwise, the United States has become the fool of force -- and the fool of history." Jonathan Schell, Too Late for Empire
"[T]he central question dividing liberals today is whether they believe liberal values are as imperiled by the new totalitarianism rising from the Islamic world as they are by the American right?"  Peter Beinart, Why Liberals—and Only Liberals—Can Win the War on Terror and Make America Great Again
