September 18, 2017 The Boston Globe

The emergence of a military junta — the three generals Trump said he would defer to for foreign policy choices — should be a cause for concern because they may not be best equipped to make decisions on America's long term interests, according to Senior Fellow Stephen Kinzer. "They naturally see the world from a military perspective and conceive military solutions to its problems. That leads toward a distorted set of national priorities, with military 'needs' always rated more important than domestic ones."
