It speaks well of democracy to safeguard their freedom... their political maturity in being able to keep that freedom unimpaired, while putting forth the effort to build up their collective strength. The people of my country and peoples of the other countries of the Atlantic community, do not cherish military strength for its own sake. They know that they need military strength to be secure against aggression. They know that a vacuum of weakness as was seen in Korea, constitutes a fatal temptation to autocracies determined to expand, and unless this vacuum is replaced by strength we will be eventually be undermined and overwhelmed.
