    Unfortunately, it wasn't. Usually, assembling a book by putting lectures between two covers is a certain route to discordant reading and contradictions. We need to get our own house in order, rather than demolish and rebuild other nations that did not invite us there. Do baser motives drive national policy? It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Although We the People of the United States are the sole source of legitimate authority in this land, we are no longer represented in Congress Assembled.

    I mean "oh, there's a homocidal maniac growing up, let's try to stop the next one before he actually kills people". That our ruling junta might have seriously provoked McVeigh and Osama was never dealt with. In war, then, let your great object be victory, not lengthy campaigns. For his warning of the thirst to profit from warfare through weapon production, Eisenhower coined the term "military industrial complex".

    And it doesn't seem to matter whether the government is controlled by Democrats or Republicans. Divine considers these questions in a thoughtful retrospective of the wars of the twentieth century. It's not anything, really, except a list of statements against US foreign policies, and, no, even that is not really true. As the Deputy Director for the Missile Defense Agency's Airborne Laser Program, Dobrot examines the hostility which has been continuous not only sincebut since the birth of Wahhabism. He wants to transform the state of peace in a state of law, juridicialisant relations between states.

Book Review: Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace (By Robert A. Divine) : MHQ

And we understand. Now, with the revolt of the Praetorian Guard at the Pentagon, we are entering a new and dangerous phase. The storyline draws distinct influence from two earlier novels, We by Yevgeny Zamyatin and Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, whilst extracting theory from various historical materialist and realist sources including essays by Vladimir Lenin and Nico Machiavelli.

Conclusion In sum, perpetual war equals perpetual peace. Does the American sense of mission demand that we take up arms to transform the world into our own image?

Things were supposed to be different under an Obama presidency, as people did not vote for more war when they voted for "change" in November. But we would like some of our tax dollars spent on education This compulsive interference in the affairs of other states is expensive and pointless.

He then turns to the way the United States wages war, looking at how it uses force to achieve political ends. Divine makes a compelling argument that when Americans settle on a moral cause to fight for, they are also unwittingly choosing the methods of total war-the logical means to achieve such an exalted aim.

Additionally, NSC 68 can be used as a reference to understand U. Beard called "perpetual war for perpetual peace. After all, the huge, costly, senseless and deadly mess called the Iraq war made people yearn for a better way.

President Harry S. At the same time, there are many domestic threats that seem to pose a greater risk to national security, including the U. Meanwhile, while it seems impossible to prevent every potential act of terrorism, the systems that should keep such undesirables off the plane in the first place are not working.

What matters is that we are open-minded enough to read his book, and examine and consider the ideas presented in it on their strength, and finally come to our own conclusions, based on our observation of everyday events as they unfold in the future. The following authors, have suggested that entering a state of perpetual war becomes progressively easier in a modern democratic republicsuch as the United States: The Iron Triangle: Inside the Secret World of the Carlyle Groupby Dan Briody.

Perpetual war

Ironically, Divine finds that America's high ideals continually prevent the very peace the nation seeks. Aspects of any given empiresuch as the British Empire and its relation to its domestic businesses that were owned by a wealthy minority of individuals, such as the East India Companythe Hudson's Bay Companyand De Beersmanifest an observed relationship between a minority of individuals influencing Empire or State policy, such as the Child's War in India, the Anglo-Mysore Wars in India, the Anglo-French conflicts on Hudson Bay in Canada, and the Second Boer War in South Africa, follow a pattern where the Empire allocates resources pursuing and sustaining policies that financially profit the Empire's domestic business's owners.Neither book represents its author's finest work.

Apr 01,  · Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace is a recycled handbill graced with wit, beautiful prose, and occasional wisdom. A retread of the author's most consistent theme--the transformation of America from a republic into an empire, Perpetual War largely consists of old material/5(17).

Oct 22,  · Socially too, war provides control for the Party, in the form of nationalism and focused xenophobia. In short, perpetual war prevents the standard of living from changing, and uses up all the motivation of the system by focusing it on an abstract conflict.

Conclusion. In sum, perpetual war equals perpetual peace. “Perpetual peace,” says a letter of the great general, “is a dream and not a beautiful dream either: war is part of the divine order of the world.
