Your writeup on the writeup of Rumsfeld and the Pentagon reminded me of these nearly 5-year-old, pre 9/11 articles from the excellent American Enterprise magazine. We were worried then about cyberterrorism, nanoterrorism and attacks from space rather than airliners crashing into skyscrapers and other than a mention of Saddam Hussein, events have evolved differently. But the backdrop and the depiction of the military war-planning at the start of the century seems more relevant than ever. Definitely worth a look: 1.) The big picture. 2.) The political dimension. 3.) Max Boot on why 'push-button war' is politically attractive. 4.) And 'Shaking Up the Pentagon' with Douglas MacGregor, James Web, Michael Vickers and Richard Perle.
