Prager U Presents Historian Andrew Roberts: Why America's Military Must Be Strong

British historian and author of “The Storm of War,” Andrew Roberts, offers a defense of U.S. military strength in a lecture for Prager University. Roberts says that history and common sense show that “when America’s armed forces are powerful, focused, and feared, the globe is a better place than when she is weak, unprepared and vacillating.” Roberts argues that there have been four great threats to peace and freedom in the past century and the US “has been a principle force protecting the free world” in these instances. Roberts also argues that the US’ military budget “has been well spent” because the “cause of freedom ultimately relies” on American “honor, power, and prestige.”
