the Next World Order?

Really good stuff going on over at Pen & Sword lately. Here's a snippet from part V of his "Next World Order" series. I know i haven't posted anything political lately, but tI just didnt have as much time to follow and be as informed as i would like to go ahead and put it out there. But this peice is well-written, and I recomment reading all 5 parts (I, II, III, IV).

I'm one of those fuddy-duddies who still doesn't think terrorism is a military problem. It's a law enforcement problem. You won't hear this at any war college or university national security program, but military force is good for two basic things: destroying stuff and killing people. It is best used to destroy the stuff and kill the people of other military forces. If there's no other military force to destroy or kill, the whole idea of applying military force to a problem gets fuzzy. Sure, it's great to rebuild electrical generators and paint schools, but you don't really need a military to do that. You need a Peace Corps.

Really, you should go read the rest of it. Go on. Get outta here. Shoo.
