I'll agree with that... I remember reading something a few years back and some European country was being criticized for having a state of the art military - again, I can't remember for sure, but I want to say Sweden or similar... anyway, the article went on to point out that this country had not been attacked for decades... as if that was making the point the country should not be diligent about keeping up their military.

Quite Ironic. Clearly the writer(s)/editor(s) did not begin to grasp there could be a connection between their military [or someone else's protecting them] and the fact they had not been attacked for decades.
