Written by a retired colonel, he challenges the "Washing Rules" the rules under which our foreign and military policy has been based for almost a century. That is, that the world must be organized in alignment with American principles, even if it means using force. And this is based on the assumption of unlimited resources. He argues that this is unsustainable drain on our country and will ultimately lead to disaster if we do not reconsider our course.
