    Is Deference Really Safer than Deterrence?

    Putin is close to establishing the “blunt” reality that the territory
    of the former Soviet Empire belongs to Moscow, either to annex
    outright or to control by compliant dictators. For sport, his air forces
    buzz ours, and do in the air what the Iranians do at sea.

    By Victor Davis Hanson September 13, 2016
    Beware international affairs the next five months, a dangerous
    period for America. Deterrence is a nation’s ability to discourage
    aggressors by instilling in them a credible fear of punishment
    far greater than any perceived gain that could be achieved
    by an attack.

    Deterrence is quite different from deference, which is a
    courteous accommodation to the will of another, often one
    deemed superior.

    Deterrence is ultimately enhanced by the possession of overwhelming
    military force, but it is unfortunately not thereby ensured. France, the
    Low Countries, and the British expeditionary force had a combined
    larger army, more tanks and comparable air forces, when Germany
    nevertheless attacked in surprise fashion and destroyed them in six
    weeks in May and June 1940. What the Allies lacked were not the
    guns and soldiers but the credibility that they would use them with
    dispatch, skill, and determination.
