A House Divided: Why America’s Fierce Feuding Is a National Security Danger | CBN News

Bradley Bowman leads the Center on Military and Political Power at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. He tells CBN News that domestic political division is increasingly becoming a national security concern. “This is scary what we’re doing right now and people better wake up,” Bowman said. “By our own divisiveness, we are making ourselves less safe.”  Bowman believes the current division provides America’s adversaries opportunities to undermine the United States. “Russia has been trying to hurt and divide American democracy since 1920, so this is not new,” Bowman said.”What they most want is they want to pit the extremes against each other. They want to pit the far Right against the far Left so that we tear each other apart. They want to say that their authoritarian model is better than ours.  ‘Look at America, look at that horrific debate.  They can’t even talk to one another in a civil way. Look at the riots, look at the violence’ and so we really are playing right into their hands.”
