In this feature interview, Bacevich talks with News Director Sally Mauk about what he calls the "new American militarism".

"I suspect if we at random grabbed 10 people on the street here in Missoula and said 'what do you think of the Iraq war?' I doubt any would say it was a rousing success."

[ Andrew Bacevich will give a free, public lecture on the new American militarism, Wednesday evening, March 12th, at 8 o'clock in the Dennison theater on the University of Montana campus.]
