Our country usually goes through periods in which our military readiness is less than what we should have if a need for protection arises. We rise to the crisis by appropriating more money to close the gaps for critical military purposes.

We live in a different world today with more needs for protection. There is more balance among countries in military power, with more countries with nuclear weapons. The military striking power has a longer reach by more countries today. America, for a number of reasons, is not the most loved country in the world. In fact, we may have more enemies than ever before, or at least countries that are not as friendly as they once were.
