Force without war : U.S. armed forces as a political instrument by Barry M Blechman( Book )

12 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 1,022 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Forskere ved Brookings Institution, Washington, har udarbejdet denne studie, om hvilken det bl.a. anføres: Gennem de tre sidste årtier har USA anvendt deres væbnede styrker ofte og på mange forskellige måder - i de fleste tilfælde i international politisk dimension, således at de kan have haft indflydelse på andre landes politiske lederes meninger og handlinger. Denne studie beskæftiger sig imidlertid kun med de tilfælde, hvor militære enheder er blevet anvendt på "diskret" måde for at opnå specielle resultater i særlige situationer. Der var 215 sådanne tilfælde mellem 1945 og 1975. Studien konkluderer at den demonstrative og diskrete anvendelse af væbnede styrker til politiske formål ikke bør blive en foranstaltning, som politikerne griber til for ofte, eller for hastigt, for at forfølge politiske mål udenlands. Det er forfatternes opfattelse, at set over en længere periode var disse anvendelser af væbnede styrker ikke et effektivt instrument i udenrigspolitikken. Dette udelukker dog ikke, at en demonstrativ anvendelse af militære styrker under særlige omstændigheder kan være en effektiv vej til at forhindre situationer i udlandet, som er ugunstige for amerikanske interesser, i at forværres hurtigere, end en passende politik kan blive udformet. Som "case studies" har forfatterne anvendt flg. begivenheder: Krigen i Laos 1962 og krigen Indien - Pakistan 1971; Libanon 1958 og Jordan 1970; Interventionen i Den Dominikanske Republik 1961 - 66; Berlin kriserne 1958 - 59 og 1961; Jugoslavien 1951 og Tjekkoslovakiet 1968

"The American Military in the Twenty-First Century assesses the likely roles of U.S. military forces in the changed international environment of the twenty-first century and how military roles and missions might best be allocated among the armed services to create a flexible, cost-effective force able to support U.S. national interests. It focuses on the basic functions of the armed forces (for example, defence of the homeland, projection of power abroad, and peacekeeping and humanitarian operations) and shows, with an illustrative force posture, how military capabilities might best be adjusted to meet the country's defence and foreign policy needs in the decades ahead"--Publisher description
