Young Americans need to be convinced of war
April 1 , 2014
Americans in their 50s and 60s understand the power of the US military but the younger generation sees the world in a different manner.
Harvard professor Stephen Peter Rosen mentioned in the Wall Street Journal that the youth that considers the Cold War unnecessary, shouldn't be blind to the evils of the world.
"The task isn't to convince them that they must support military action when they believe in their hearts that it cannot work," Rosen writes. Instead, the goal should be to tell them that some things are worth the fight and fighting nuclear proliferation makes our world a safer place.
"In short, America must help others defend themselves against tyranny because it is in our national interest to do so."
