TED Talk on the Military

I enjoy listening to the talks from the TED conference.  Here's one from Thomas Barnett on national security and the military.  The summary is:

Strategic planner Thomas P.M. Barnett has advised US leaders on national security since the end of the Cold War. In this bracingly honest -- and very funny -- talk, Barnett outlines a solution for the foundering US military: Break it in two. One half makes war, and the other half builds the peace that follows.

Thanks for posting this, it was simply fantastic. As a prior service Army officer myself it makes me wince to realize that there could be ideas like this floating around at the high levels of the DoD and they aren't being acted on more.
