Example text

States that are unusually secure, for geographic or size reasons, should be least motivated to emulate. Yet when strategic necessity demands, the desire to emulate should be strong enough to cause substantial efforts to overcome any institutional barriers or internal factors that would tend to cause distortions. Emulation should also be faithful to the source. Everyone should emulate the most successful practices—the most efficient model. Special or limited geography only affects the mission area at issue, not the expectation that efficiency drives model selection given mission requirements.

This will be even more the case if the hegemonic power of the United States can maintain international peace, as in Latin America. The military will therefore acquire advanced weaponry, as if preparing for foreign war, but will primarily fix its sights on domestic goals. 40 Armies in such circumstances can be regarded in part as spoils systems, in which control over force is employed to the profit—political, social, and financial—of their members, especially the leaders. This was also the situation in early modern Europe, but is not so with modern Western militaries.

The Greek revolt of 1821 led to renewed conflict with Russia in 1828–1829. In 1832, Muhammad Ali of Egypt marched against the Sultan and almost reached Istanbul. The Ottoman case should be a most likely case for neorealism given pressing strategic necessity. 16 For neorealists, Japan’s readiness for war in 1904 and the Ottomans’ lack of readiness in 1914 are surprising. The state with greater external pressure to transform failed to do so, while the state facing milder external pressure effected an unprecedented social and political transformation.
