The U.S. Army Chief of Staff has released his 2017 reading list. Proud to say that our publication, Reconsidering the American Way of War: U.S. Military Practice from the Revolution to Afghanistan by Antulio J. Echevarria, made the list! As did many other University Press publications. #USArmy +Georgetown University#CSAReadingList #ReadUP

In her new book, “War and the Art of Governance,” Nadia Schadlow reminded us that our operations in Afghanistan and Iraq revealed our “missing middle, the gap between combat and the steps required to achieve stability [and] forge a sustainable outcome.” If we have such plans for Mosul and Raqqa, they are well-kept secrets.

Before the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC) was signed in 1972, many terrible diseases—including tularemia, glanders, Q fever, and staphylococcal enterotoxins—were legally weaponized by national governments, including the United States, the United Kingdom, and Germany. Now, in 2017, the technical ability to make and create new bioweapons is exponentially greater. Biological techniques and equipment are available and inexpensive, pathogens are plentiful, and some can even be made de novo.

. . . But due to what Schadlow calls the "American denial syndrome," policymakers have consistently rejected the idea that governance should be a formal part of military operations. That "the United States continues to lack the operational capabilities to consolidate combat gains in order to reconstitute political order" she attributes to a combination of history and culture.

Here, I learned that it’s always existential for North Korea: “Ignoring the world and being ignored by it was impossible; it was located in the wrong place for that. Thus, from the start its leaders felt required to be threatening and bellicose to survive.” #NuclearNorthKorea #BookReviews

Beyond battlefield success to political victory
The civilian distaste for getting the army involved in governing goes back to the American Revolution when Americans recoiled from the British use of soldiers as an occupying force. The reluctance of many military professionals to get involved in governance functions is a combination of a belief that when the fighting stops the military role ends and civilians, notably the State Department, should take over, as well as a military culture where many believe that civil governance is not the business of real soldiering.
