Learning the Limits of American Military Power

Christopher Preble, vice president for defense and foreign policy studies at the Cato Institute, covered the Charles Koch Institute’s conference “Advancing American Security” for The National Interest Preble, a speaker himself at “Advancing American Security,” discusses how the conference provided a forum for a range of viewpoints regarding the appropriate use of military power. As Preble writes:

“[The speakers] pointed out that U.S. intervention—especially military intervention—was at least partly to blame for the chaos consuming the region. And they suggested—sometimes delicately, sometimes less so—that the use of even more force would offer few solutions. Oftentimes, it makes manageable problems worse—though the effects are mostly felt by peoples elsewhere, not by Americans here at home.”
