Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace by Harry Elmer Barnes from mises.org

It was once assumed that we could be safe within our own boundaries, but now we are told that we must have many military bases widely scattered throughout the globe. Yet this is not likely to promote our own security or world peace. The more we extend our bases the more we expose ourselves to attack and the more we arouse the hostility of other nations which are not likely to take at their face value our protestations of peace and good will. Our peace record on our own continent is not too impressive. It is generally agreed that our entry into the First World War did not increase our security, and there is a growing conviction that the same is true of our entry into the second [emphasis added].
This was originally published in 1953.
