Eisenhower said that “a vital element in keeping the peace is our military establishment”. The two factors – peace and military might – are naturally at odds with each other and as such it is strange to find that the terms are so often promoted in conjunction with one another. Indeed, America continues along this line of logic still today, albeit in a different way than the former President had imagined. Eisenhower truly believed that the best way to secure peace for his nation was to become impenetrable. he thought that building one of the strongest military forces in the world would dissuade any potential enemies from acting out in a violent manner and taking American lives. Certainly it can be said that no other nation has waged war on America in the years following the Farewell Address, however the crucial difference between Eisenhower’s vision and current American military exploits is the use of force upon other nations like Afghanistan and Iraq. Modern America pursues enemies that it perceives as ideological and terrorist threats. in the attacks on Afghanistan and Iraq the United States has sought to retaliate for calculated attacks on American soil. The very presence of terrorism in the modern United States can show both how Eisenhower was justified in his belief of military might for peace, and how despite this proven ideology enemies find ways to strike. America’s military strength means that no other nation in the world would seek open combat. therefore opposing views and enemy forces will not be represented by other states but as smaller, dynamic organizations.
