Options presented for this issue are not discussed in the open forum -Many Americans are concerned about how to prepare for war without destroying the virtues, qualities and principles that are set to save military-civilian relationship (Michael, 7) -Citizens expected to be involved in the country's internal affairs

[...] Enemies do not welcome a give and take conventional diplomacy. Negotiations are, therefore, pointless and use of force remains the only option. Surname 4 The military is allowed to vote, but not take any party affiliations. After election, the military should forget its party affiliations and follow the orders of civilian leaders in power regardless of party (Jim, par. 25).
