Clausewitz asserted that military force was in essence a means of achieving foreign policy objectives. During the last decade the ability of the U.S. military forces to achieve such objectives has been constrained in a variety of ways by the civil rights movement. It is important that the military recognize these constraints without rejecting the legitimate aspirations of the civil rights movement.
