Where journalists have gotten themselves in trouble over the last few decades is that their skepticism often extends only to American officials, the U.S. military and Republican politicians.  (American Military Quotes) In American military cemeteries all over the world, seemingly endless rows of whitened grave markers stand largely unvisited and in silence. The gardeners tend the lawns, one section at a time. Even at the famous sites, tourism is inconstant.  (American Military Quotes) In the Marine Corps, you meet this really broad segment of the country; you’re working with people from all kinds of backgrounds. And it exposes you to the American military, particularly the American military at war.  (American Military Quotes) The American military generally counts on a kill ratio of 10 to 1 when fighting lightly armed insurgents: for every dead American, there are probably 10 dead enemy.  (American Military Quotes) Unlike the Afghans and Iraqis, the South Korean people solidly supported the American military presence, which was part of a United Nations operation.  (American Military Quotes) The Afghan security forces will always have the help of the U.S. American military to ensure that Afghanistan never fails.  (American Military Quotes) If a Chinese plane landed at Los Angeles Airport having just bought down an American military plane, he wouldn’t be permitted to leave the next day. So then we developed a framework which should have been acceptable as a concept to the Chinese, namely to express regret for the loss of life and maintain our position that we had a right to fly these missions.  (American Military Quotes) The Chinese, on the other hand, were in the position of having an American military spy plane on a Chinese military base and they had their own internal problems to deal with. At first, the Chinese weren’t all that belligerent. They were just stalling to get their own bureaucracy in line.  (American Military Quotes) The U.S. couldn’t play a military role in different areas like Iraq and Afghanistan without huge quantities of oil. So a shortage or disruption in oil would not only damage the U.S. economy; it would undercut American military supremacy.  (American Military Quotes) Ronald Reagan in foreign affairs, I think, was someone who had certain, very general ideas, general propositions by which he lives: To combat communism, to build up the American military power to assure our national security against any conceivable threat.  (American Military Quotes) In committing an estimated 3,000 U.S. forces to join international Ebola relief efforts in West Africa, President Obama seems to be fulfilling the plans of highly influential progressive groups who seek to transform the American military into more of a social-work organization.  (American Military Quotes) I learned to be far more skeptical of what I’m told by presidents, no matter who the presidents are, and also to be much more cautious, always, in any action or vote that could lead to the use of American military power and most particularly what we call ‘boots on the ground.’  (American Military Quotes) Fourth, we might have declared an embargo against the shipping from American ports of any merchandise to either one of these governments that persisted in maintaining its military zone.  (American Military Quotes) I proposed a law that every country where the U.S. has a military base - those people should be allowed to vote in the American election.  (American Military Quotes) We will continue to deepen our engagement using every element of American power - diplomacy, military, economic development, the power of our values and our ideals.  (American Military Quotes) The only one benefiting from this, the American taxpayer, almost half of our taxes, our income taxes, are going to the military and to these wars.  (American Military Quotes) Smart power’ is the use of American power in ways that would help prevent and resolve conflict - not just send our military in.  (American Military Quotes) Once the war against Saddam begins, we expect every American to support our military, and if they can’t do that, to shut Up.  (American Military Quotes) Many in the U.S. military believe ISIS needs to be immediately, and repeatedly, smashed by American drones and warplanes.  (American Military Quotes) Want to depose the government of a poor country with resources? Want to bash Muslims? Want to build support for American military interventions around the world? Want to undermine governments that are raising their people up from poverty because they don’t conform to the tastes of Upper West Side intellectuals? Use human rights as your excuse!  (American Military Quotes) Many in the American military have learned the fundamental dilemma of modern warfare: More money and better weapons don’t mean that you win.  (American Military Quotes) Some of the American military obviously were thinking in terms of fighting a nuclear war. I was opposed to that.  (American Military Quotes) Lincoln made mistakes. Roosevelt made mistakes. Eisenhower made mistakes. The Battle of the Bulge was the biggest intelligence failure in American military history, much bigger than any in Vietnam or now. We didn’t know that the Soviets were moving 400,000 or 500,000 troops. We missed it.  (American Military Quotes) It is hard as an American to support the failure of American military operations in Iraq. Such failure will bring with it the death and wounding of many American service members, and many more Iraqis  (American Military Quotes) It is vital that Iraq and the United States together send the clearest possible signal that those who commit acts of violence against American military forces and American civilians will not be rewarded with amnesty  (American Military Quotes) I submit that those who run the American military at the top, and those whose boots are on the ground and who run the machinery and equipment, are sending a signal: You asked us to do something. Give us some time and we will solve the problems and we will do it  (American Military Quotes) Were the Soviet Union to sink tomorrow under the waters of the ocean, the American military-industrial establishment would have to go on, substantially unchanged, until some other adversary could be invented. Anything else would be an unacceptable shock to the American economy  (American Military Quotes) Our military doesn’t defend our American people. Our military is the strong-arm muscle of corporations  (American Military Quotes) Climate Change is a national security issue. We found that climate instability will lead to instability in geopolitics and impact American military operations around the world. People are saying they want to be perfectly convinced about climate science projections. But speaking as a soldier, we never have 100 percent certainty. If you wait until you have 100 percent certainty, something bad is going to happen on the battlefield  (American Military Quotes)
