Should military forces be removed? Why / why not?

Hello,

I'm asked to present a speech with the following topic: "Should military forces be removed from our country? Why / why not?

In my own opinion I believe that this would set our country as a weak country, but on the other hand it might encourage other countries to all drop the forces and thereby have a world of peace.

gots to have the military. if no military, this country, the greatest on the planet Earth, the U.S. of A., would be overran by terrorist and other countries to take away the freedoms we enjoy.

Commented on another comment, but I live in Denmark, a small country just north of Germany. We don't have many problems as a country and we're good friends with the larger countries.

Even the Swiss have an army, and the Vatican city has its armed guards, so your point is?

It is one of the few things or constitution DOES charge our government to raise, or do we simply forget the "Provide for the common defense" clause in the document?

The one thing that binds us all, since Cain killed Able, is the love of war. It lives in our souls like cancer. Countries need armies, if not for anything else, prevention of conquest by other nations. Sweden declares neutrality. It has an army, navy and air force. Even Switzerland, has an army made of the citizens. Each is required to store a government supplied assault weapon in his home. Training is mandatory.
