The Protracted Conflict

Crozier, Brian
November 1979
National Review;11/23/1979, Vol. 31 Issue 47, p1481
The article comments on the Carter Administration's military policies and compares them with the Soviet Union's global view of military strategy. The author laments the fact that the U.S. does not, or no longer does, take a global approach to military strategy like the Russians. The U.S. also takes a piece-meal appraisal of strategic imperatives and opportunities in Latin America, while the Soviet Union assesses its strategies in the region as a whole.
