Re: Price on Meilinger, 'Thoughts on War'

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this review.

I was very glad to see included section about military involved in politics. One essential point, which such brief review did not note, is the rationales and historical reasons why US military turned away from involving itself, overtly, into politics. This is an area deserving more substantive presentation and shows why that divide line is and remains important to the conduct of military affairs by the US.

These short reviews cannot always do the sort of exploration some subjects deserve; this area is one of those.
