WikiProject Military history/Assessment/Tag & Assess 2008[edit]

Article reassessed and graded as start class. --dashiellx (talk) 17:33, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

internal link?[edit]

I just thought that this maxim is near from the command & conquer ones "peace through power". If anyone thinks it could be useful, what about adding an internal reference? 85.18.201.175 (talk) 05:51, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

How about deleting article?[edit]

No references, sounds like a fan site, etc. Just WP:OR POV essay at this point, though if someone wanted to work on it and give it references it might past muster. CarolMooreDC (talk) 03:48, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

There look to be a few references since added. It's still a stub, but hardly worth deleting, or needing the cite tag anymore. QueenofBattle (talk) 20:45, 15 October 2009 (UTC)

Paul Peachey[edit]

I removed mention of "According to author Paul Peachey, it is the essence of Vegetius's maxim si vis pacem, para bellum (if you want peace, prepare for war)" as I could not find it—the phrase "peace through strength"—in the source. I was reverted with an edit summary that indicated it (presumably the phrase "peace through strength") was in the full text. Yet a google book search led me to page 303 of Democracy: in the throes of liberalism and totalitarianism where I found the reference to Vegetius but no mention of "peace through strength". I am going to remove it again. -Shootbamboo (talk) 00:34, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

Washington City Paper[edit]

This article was mentioned in "No Peace for Hawkish Think Tanks Over Reagan Slogan" (Washington City Paper, Sept. 14 2012). Mostly it's in regards to this edit by User:Gjames755, which User:Gobonobo subsequently corrected within WP:POV and WP:MOS guidelines. Green Cardamom (talk) 05:33, 15 September 2012 (UTC)

American Security Council Foundation[edit]

It's obvious American Security Council Foundation is editing this article and promoting itself.[1] "ASCF urges millions to join Coalition for Peace Through Strength". ASCF has already been publicly embarrassed in the Washington City Paper (see above). What further damage ASCF wishes to reap upon its credibility by continually editing this article with blatant political PR is interesting to watch. Suggest editor visit WP:COI. -- Green Cardamom (talk) 06:41, 12 October 2012 (UTC)

Delete self-redirecting internal link?[edit]

The link "Strength Through Peace, the opposing doctrine" at the bottom of this article just redirects to the same page, which doesn't seem very useful. Maybe it should be deleted? Hgby (talk) 19:29, 4 July 2013 (UTC)

Done. -- Green Cardamom (talk) 00:42, 5 July 2013 (UTC)
