Lesson of the Cole Incident: Stop Privatizing Our Generals  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

“The shocking experience of the attack upon the USS Cole,” writes Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr., “should have awakened relevant, witting U.S. policy-shapers to the urgency of an immediate and sweeping reversal of the process of ‘privatization’ of the military and immediately related institutions and functions of the U.S. government.... The dismal results of related, current trends in U.S. strategic and related policies, of which an obsessive fixation upon ‘privatization,’ is but one symptom, is a pervasive problem, a problem whose existence can not be separated from what even non-military professionals should and must recognize as a spreading illiteracy respecting relevant strategic lessons of modern history.”
