The distinctions Gates makes between "threats"
is arbitrary and what he calls a "failed state"
could be a legitimate, struggling democracy that
he wants to control.
This is a man who will never accept an Islamic
government, whether legimately elected or not.
This strategy on how to "dominate" or "sustain
the institution" smells like the Cold War and
will do nothing to improve our leadership in the
world. It will do the opposite.
Total myopic thinking.Certainly not an example
for the civilized world.Institutionalizing the
war machine is dangerous.It must remain subject
in all ways, culturally, financially,
politically, to civilian rule, the people.
This is a man in warworld.
