War is a necessary evil at times. Although we would love to think that as nations we can all get together and hold hands while singing Kumbayah. The reality is that you need to stay one step ahead of your enemies and always be prepared for war. If Iwo Jima had to happen today, it would look like this amphibious landing exercise by the US Marines and the Republic of Korea Marines on Dogue Beach in Pohang, Republic of Korea. The training exercise caught on video below looks like a scene straight out of a Michael Bay movie. But make no mistake about it, this is the real deal.
To be prepared for war is one of the most effective means of preserving peace.-George Washington
