I dislike posting about articles for which I offer no value-added analysis. However, occasionally an article comes along that is so good that I feel I simply must bring it to your attention even if I have little or no analysis to offer. Such an article is a Breaking Defense piece about the use and misuse of the military. It’s written by Daniel Davis, a former Army lieutenant colonel with four combat deployments who is now a defense expert at Defense Priorities, a Washington think tank.
The author touches on the Constitutional issues of military control and purpose and the current misuse of military forces and the abdication of Congressional control over the military. It should sound familiar to regular followers of this blog.
It’s a short article so do yourself a favor, follow the link below, read it, ponder the Constitutional issues, and let me know what you think.
