Clausewitz's Fog and Friction and the Military Transformation Fiction | Ballots & Bullets - 3 views

  •  
    Strategic studies have retained the thinking of Karl von Clausewitz at its core. The Prussian General's understanding of war by reference to the political process saw wars as the "continuation of politics by other means" (Clausewitz, 1997). In conflict research, this has become the most widely quoted definition of war. What made Clausewitz's work 'On war' so successful was that he wrote about war by focusing on its general aspects, or more simply, on the spirit of war as he saw it. In this way, war no longer drew on narrow and specific contexts, but rather became understood, as an enduring phenomenon, in general terms.

    Before we let ourselves be stampeded into another unnecessary war, let us review a few facts that seem to contradict the war propaganda. First, last week's acknowledgment that Iran has enough enriched uranium for one atom bomb does not mean Iran is building an atom bomb. To construct a nuclear device, the ton of low-enriched uranium at Natanz would have to be run through a second cascade of high-speed centrifuges to produce 55 pounds of highly enriched uranium (HUE). There is no evidence Iran has either created the cascade of high-speed centrifuges necessary to produce HUE or that Iran has diverted any of the low-enriched uranium from Natanz. And the International Atomic Energy Agency inspectors retain full access to Natanz. And rather than accelerating production of low-enriched uranium, only 4,000 of the Natanz centrifuges are operating. Some 1,000 are idle. Why? Dr. Mohamed El-Baradei, head of the IAEA, believes this is a signal that Tehran wishes to negotiate with the United States, but without yielding any of its rights to enrich uranium and operate nuclear power plants.

Biography in Context - Document - 16 views

  • The outbreak of the war changed Emerson, who had disdained political parties, mistrusted philanthropic efforts, and once called himself "a seeing eye, not a helping hand." He labeled the war "a new glass to see all our old things through." It was "instructor," "searcher" "magnetizer" and "reconciler." Emerson the individualist and idealist may have bristled at the churning power of the machinery of war, but Emerson the patriot and realist welcomed the struggle for the birth of a new social order. "The war," Emerson realized, "is serving many good purposes .... war shatters everything flimsy and shifty, sets aside all false issues, and breaks through all that is not real as itself."

    "At the time of publication, it was leading up to 100 years since the cessation of fighting at the end of the First World War. The destruction of life, lands and families finally ceased for a couple of decades and bringing to mind the conflict of modern-day young generations is still important as lessons can be learned from those tragic battles."

Former Indiana Governor Seeks Censorship of Howard Zinn - Validated Independent News - 44 views

  •  
    project censored article on former Indiana gov Mitch Daniels now president of Purdue's effort to root out Zinn's work from being used by teachers.  article notes contrast of Ziinn's treatment of US imperialism compared with a standard history text used in Indiana that devotes all of two paragraphs to the US war with Mexico that ended with Mexico "ceding" i(n the euphemistic curricular language) almost 1/2 it's territory to the US--while not mentioning any dissent about this war.  In contrast, Zinn's people's history devotes a whole chapter to the conflict.
