For the last half century, as administrations have come and gone, the fundamental assumptions about America's military policy have remained unchanged: American security requires the United States (and us alone) to maintain a permanent armed presence around the globe, and to be ready to intervene anywhere at any time. In the Obama era, just as in the Bush years, these beliefs remain unquestioned. In this vivid analysis, Andrew J. Bacevich presents the origins of this consensus, forged at a moment when American power was at its height. He exposes the preconceptions, biases, and habits that underlie our pervasive faith in military might, especially the notion that overwhelming superiority will oblige others to accommodate America's needs and desires--whether for cheap oil, cheap credit, or cheap consumer goods. And he challenges the usefulness of our militarism as it has become both unaffordable and increasingly dangerous--From publisher description.… (mere)

Written by a retired colonel, he challenges the "Washing Rules" the rules under which our foreign and military policy has been based for almost a century. That is, that the world must be organized in alignment with American principles, even if it means using force. And this is based on the assumption of unlimited resources. He argues that this is unsustainable drain on our country and will ultimately lead to disaster if we do not reconsider our course. ( )

טירדה של ביסביץ' נגד מדיניות הביטחון המסורתית של ארה"ב והמעורבית הגלובלית שלה. מבחינתי הוא פורץ לדלת פתוחה אבל היה עדיף אם הטקסט היה קצת יותר קול ופחות לוהט ( )

What a remarkable author. He articulates a strong opinion and dissects it well. His premise about how Washington has put us in a perpetual state of war is truly depressing. The author has a lot to say, that is valuable and well said. I'd love to see him be the one to fix things. ( )

Another perceptive and convincing work from Andrew Bacevich. This one argues that the U.S. military/industrial complex has become a self-propelling behemoth, which continues to expand almost no matter who is nominally in charge in Washington. This has tended to push U.S. foreign policy towards -- shall we say -- an overassumption of international responsibility, where every thing that happens everywhere is within the U.S. policy purview. Now, the bills are starting to get too big for the economy to pay. The book convinced me that cutting back military and security spending is the most important thing we could do as a nation to improve our financial situation and long term security. ( )
