A Grand Strategy of Sustainment

CREDIT:

“Sustainment” is one of the uglier neologisms I’ve heard in quite some time, but Shawn Brimley’s short article advocating “A Grand Strategy of Sustainment” is one of the better quick takes on forward-looking strategy that I’ve read in some time. Highly recommended.

Note that beyond an end to the exclusion of voices who were right about Iraq in 2002-2003, what we really need is more diversity of ideas about American foreign policy and more strategic thinking that, like what Brimley’s written here, reflects a real alternative to the years of hubris.
