Albert N. Gore on Homeland Security
A: We must maintain a strategic military force yet put more of an emphasis upon nation building. Modern warfare is no longer fought with a conventional army and weapons. Should our approach to military spending be stuck in conventional mode? This is akin to throwing money down a black hole. With the need for specialized forces, weapons and strategies, there are opportunities to reduce military spending in-mass. We need to build support throughout the world, and nation building is going to be the way to approach this. Specialized forces have already proven an effective way to achieve military, political and social successes.
