JASON CHAFFETZ (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): I buy into the whole Reagan strategy of peace through strength. I think as we go into appropriation season, it's also important to remember that we need to be able to fight on two fronts. We need to be able to fight in the Pacific and we also need to be able to have essentially unlimited resources in the Middle East to keep the peace, and I think the president is doing the right thing. You can actually look back two years, when the president and the Republican Congress started ratcheting up by the tens of billions of dollars, the resources, that can now be tapped into because they've been able to increase the infrastructure, get troops that we need in place. But it is absolutely to keep the peace.
