It's also the same school of thought that produced the phrase "mutual assured destruction," which historically worked.

The military's job is not to "make a point." The military's job is to defeat the enemy.
In part, but it's also the military's job to make potential enemies think (more than) twice before attacking.

When it comes to defensive capabilities, you don't want to appear to be the "low hanging fruit."
