My take on a variety of topics that are shaping the U.S. in the 21st century.

This time it's an article in Foreign Affairs, 'Ending Endless War'. He introduces here the role of the people in our war-making endeavors. That's something you don't see very much. He brings up something I've have been advocating - restore the draft. Bacevich modifies this so that there are fewer exemptions. He introduces the idea of increasing taxes to pay for the cost of wars we enter in the future.
