Peace through Strength, n. Establishing peace, according to your own
terms, by ensuring that your nation has superior military powers to
those of its neighbors. With the advent of nuclear weaponry, peace
through strength has taken a new step forward and now also bears the
title of mutually assured destruction.

Paradoxically, this is actually not as absurd as it initially sounds.
It works remarkably well due to an essential unity of spirit among the
nations. Peace is desirable. That is the almost unequivocal consensus.
Military strength is the best way to achieve this -- again, the
nations' consensus.

Thus each nation attempts to establish a military that is a safe
margin greater than the forces of its neighbors. This helps prepare
for the resolution of any misunderstandings that might arise. In
addition, the resulting friendly competition does wonders for the
economy, especially on the poorer end.
