He'd probably kill me for suggesting that he writes in the same vein has Harry Summers but then, everybody now uses, "On Point" to describe the horrible after effects of doctrine applied in the vacuum of POLMIL relations. Schwartzkopf and Powell understood that and made the POL accept the limitations of power applied via military compulsion. Not one single politician since Bush the Elder has understood that you don't build anything with rifles. Not the most adept statescraft in history will change an islamic state from what it is into a parliamentary democracy. It literally cannot happen given the supremacy of islam to every aspect of social life and governance.
