Andrew Bacevich on civilian-military relationsFrom "Elusive Bargain: The Pattern of U.S. Civil-military relations Since World War II" by Andrew Bacevich in the 2007 book edited by him, Long War: A History of U.S. National Security Policy Since World War II:
With U.S. military commitments stretching existing resources to the limit, with the prospect of more war stretching to the far horizon, and with the implications of an increasingly militarized conception of policy simply ignored, national security nonetheless remained after 9/11 - as it had been since World War II - the one arena of American life from which democratic processes were persistently excluded.Tags: andrew bacevich, us military
