  • How the United States Ends Wars | ucdclinton.ie | UCD Clinton
    States has found it difficult to end wars One reason for this is a tendency for political leaders and military personnel to develop conflicting objectives As one speaker noted the US military is skilled in the art of killing it has enjoyed far less success in conceptualizing military objectives that contribute to long term political stability One of the more frequent strategies for ending wars is that of Vietnamization or turning the fighting over to local troops that have been trained by US often special forces As in Vietnam however this rarely succeeds for a variety of reasons including the unwillingness inability of the United States to invest the long term resources and presence necessary for such a strategy On the home front as several speakers noted the Americans have a tendency to treat all US soldiers as heroes regardless of their actions or individual experiences and to consider them unconnected to any negative actions or consequences of the war s in which they fought Indeed there is a propensity for American society to embrace a collective amnesia about negative consequences of wars in general In closing a general consensus emerged that the United States in the future needs to 1 be more careful about beginning entering wars in the first place 2 do a better job of connecting military and political goals once fighting has begun and 3 do a better job of embracing accurate including negative narratives about wars in which it has fought Programme DAY ONE Keynote Gideon Rose Editor of Foreign Affiars How Not to End Wars The American Experience Vietnam Part One Cultural and non US Perspectives James Curran University of Sydney When Allies Turn on You Nixonian rage at Swedish and Australian condemnation of the Christmas Bombings Simon Toner Dartmouth University How the South
