More than three years have passed since the petroleum crisis of 1973 forced the United States to confront the multifaceted challenge posed by an impending imbalance between energy supply and demand. The crisis posed two special problems for the West regarding the linkage between energy and the security of the Free World. First, the recognition that military power is sustained by the economic strength of the alliance partners and, at present, is contingent upon an adequate supply of petroleum. The second centered around the danger that the greater dependence of the European states and Japan on imports of oil could lead to begger-thy-neighbor competition and tend to undermine the cohesion of the Western alliance. The United States reaction to the latter issue is the subject of this first National Defense University monograph on national security affairs. In it, Professors Joseph S. Szyliowicz and Bard E. O'Neill have reviewed the interaction between the United States and its allies. They have described short- and long-term effects of the crisis on American-European relations and suggested several factors to account for changes which occurred

Violating reality : the Lavelle affair, Nixon, and the parsing of the truth by Mark Clodfelter( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On December 20, 2010, the Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC) denied the Pentagon's request, endorsed by President Barack Obama, to advance posthumously Air Force Maj Gen John D. Lavelle to the retired list in the rank of general. Thirty-eight years earlier, Air Force Chief of Staff Gen John D. Ryan had fired the four-star Lavelle as the Seventh Air Force commander in Saigon for allegedly conducting unauthorized airstrikes against North Vietnam and ordering the falsification of mission reports. Senate hearings in September 1972 deemed Lavelle guilty of both offenses, resulting in his demotion to major general following retirement. Yet a careful reading of documentary and taped evidence, much of it recently discovered and not available at the time of the original Senate hearings, reveals that General Lavelle neither violated the rules of engagement (ROE) that prescribed America's air war at the time of his dismissal nor falsified mission reports. Accordingly, Lavelle should have his rank restored, and the so-called Lavelle affair should serve as a cautionary tale for political and military leaders alike who question the proper conduct of 'civil-military relations' in the complex and often confounding era of modern limited war"--Introduction
