In today’s environment, the enemy is not so obvious.
New Braunfels, TX (PRWEB) December 14, 2012
“America is the only nation that has the strength to protect western civilization,” explains author John Proctor. “Americans may not want this role in world affairs, but there is no one else. Thus, Americans must accept military training as part of their lives.” It is this stern belief that he shares in his new book, “American Resolve and the Art of War: A Study and Application of Military Tactics” (published by AuthorHouse).
Proctor states that today’s society wants a strong military, but not at the expense of a military draft. That said, he shares his own plan for a stronger military force.
In his book he proposes that most able-bodied American men serve 10 years in a special military reserve force. During each of the 10 years, the men will train for three weeks. The remaining 49 weeks will be spent on a productive job as a civilian.
“What I propose is not new. In colonial times, each of the 13 colonies had a militia that was composed of all males 16 years and older.” He adds that during these times, the enemy was readily apparent and that Native Americans could attack at any moment.
“In today’s environment, the enemy is not so obvious. Thus, it is difficult to train to fight an unknown enemy. However, if an enemy perceives a weakness, he will attack.”
Proctor’s book is a bitter, and according to him, necessary, pill for Americans to swallow.
