The Utility of Force: The Art of War in the Modern World (Vintage)
From a highly decorated general, a brilliant new way of understanding war and its role in the twenty-first century.
Drawing on his vast experience as a commander during the first Gulf War, and in Bosnia, Kosovo, and Northern Ireland, General Rupert Smith gives us a probing analysis of modern war. He demonstrates why today’s conflicts must be understood as intertwined political and military events, and makes clear why the current model of total war has failed in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other recent campaigns. Smith offers a compelling contemporary vision for how to secure our world and the consequences of ignoring the new, shifting face of war.
I’ve tried to think about my life in terms of black and white, thinking in her kind of way after we’ve gone and messed everything up. Black and white is how she viewed the world. She wanted me to see things the way she saw them. “It’s simpler. Spare yourself. Please,” she always said.
One night in our hotel room, we were driving late to Los Angeles from Henderson to get away from things, leave town for a bit, we drank Olde English all night until we laid on our backs next to the air conditioning unit below the window. “Come on, just forget about it,” I kept saying. I was laughing.
She got up and screamed at me. “How can you be laughing? Just look at you!” She tore the lamp off the desk, sparks jumped from the socket and the room went dark. I stopped laughing. She sat on the edge of the bed and glared. Whenever a light passed through the curtains, it illuminated a part of her face. She moaned as she cried. Wild heaves. With her hands clutching both her shoulders, she rocked herself back and forth. I thought of the look that feral animals have when they’re finally trapped.
“Oh god,” she said. “Oh god.”
“I told you that I would. I told you that I wouldn't do this for any other girl but you. Everything about who I thought I was, I'd let it go. It’s simple as that,” I said.
It's hard to change who you are. When I told her, “it’s simple as that”, I knew I was lying. Maybe it is for her but I don’t know her anymore. I could never be like her. Sometimes, I wonder if that’s the only reason why she became so frustrated and hateful. I could never achieve her decisiveness. To “let it flow” and abandon all of her former dreams. She wanted to be an artist once; I still hold those memories of her. I knew her better then than the shadow that laid on the bed staring at the ceiling.
The simplest thing we can do in our lives is sleep. I honestly believe that.
Jim came over today and helped me moved the furniture out the house. We left everything on the front porch, I didn’t care if they were stolen. What would anyone want with an old sofa, chipped wooden chairs and a coffee table? We had lunch at Denny's and drank a few beers before loading everything into the back of the U-Haul. Hong came over after we finished to say her goodbyes and let me know that she’d be alright. She was in her last semester at UNLV and in my mind, was the only family I had. The three of us sat around on the sofa inside the U-Haul until the sun set. We went back inside and drank a bottle of Maker’s Mark and slept in the empty living room.
The next day, we woke up early and set the sign up for a yard sale on the corner street lamp. It was written with Sharpies on a piece of cardboard I use to lay on the kitchen floor in front of the stove. Maybe I’d get enough to pay the utility and phone bill from last month. We lifted the sofa out of the van and set it down on the porch and watched for people. There wasn’t much, just the sofa, dining room table, television cabinet and bed. I piled some old records and books on top of the box-spring. A young couple came and took the coffee table. “$15,” the boy said. It was a low-ball offer but I gave it to them on their first offer.
“Sure, it's all yours,” I said.
“Yeah. Go ahead. Enjoy.”
These are some of the things that I've been doing ever since I told her I was tired and she left. There’s been some strange days and everything is up and down. Yesterday, I fell asleep in the middle of afternoon and didn’t wake up until six this evening. It was overcast and the sky looked the same as it does in the morning. I showered, shaved and dressed for work and walked to the bus station. I looked through the open window of the house across the street and saw a woman set down plates and dishes across a dining table.
I’ve been spending more nights on the strip. The strip is always full of people and when I’m there, it makes me feel even more anonymous that I ever was. I don't go into the casinos or night clubs. I just walk. Up and down, up and down, from the Luxor to Treasure Island. By the end of the night, it’s enough for a few miles. I realize I am more lonely now than I ever was.
Maybe it could have been just that simple if I let it be.
Bodega del Willo Project 365 Day 174
Ever since we moved here, Pam has been looking for a new wine rack to replace the utility one we brought with us from England. I have to admit, the old one did nothing for the kitchen here. Back in Greasby it fitted in a corner cupboard where it couldn’t be seen.
So we’ve looked at wrought iron ones, wooden ones, plastic ones, brick ones – the lot. Early on, there was one shaped like a guitar that Pam fancied. Mrs W. claims now that she was only joking but at the time she made a point of showing it to the girls on their first visit. Jemma’s reaction was a McEnroesque, “you cannot be serious!”.
This one, which Pam found in Aki, did require an element of assembly, disassembly and reassembly but was worth it in the end. It holds the right number of bottles (some of the fancy ones only held 12 bottles), it matches other chrome items in the kitchen, it fits the space, you can move it to clean behind and most important – Pam likes it.
Now, hopefully, we can stop looking for Pam’s other project which was a table and chairs for the kitchen. We have tables and chairs in the dining area, on the porch, on the terrace and on the roof. I ask you, just how many different places do we need to eat especially when there are only normally two of us!
