The New Occupation: How Preventive War is Wrecking the Military
The New Occupation: How Preventive War is Wrecking the Military . Just over a year after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the Bush administration published its new National Security Strategy (NSS), giving prominent place to unilateral, preventive wars -- followed by the dismantling of the leadership and governing structures in targeted countries. What this radical new doctrine failed to acknowledge, describe or discuss was our preparation for the consequences. Left unsaid is that we would bear the heavy new burdens of protracted occupation and state building on a massive scale after these preventive wars. By Charles Knight and Marcus Corbin.
