A decade of multinational operations and global engagement
has forced the U.S. military into a deeper and
more sustained set of military-to-military relationships
than previous strategic conditions required. In many
cases, this experience has demonstrated differences between
how our current generation of oficers and their
international peers view and discuss the exercise of U.S.
power and inluence overseas. Anecdotally, it has sometimes
seemed as if American oficers and their foreign
partners were talking past each other—not only coming
to different conclusions, but using entirely different
premises and reasoning to explain the exercise of U.S.
power abroad. In some cases, friction driven by miscommunication
has manifested as low-level dissatisfaction
and has been contained by professional norms and institutional
processes. In other cases, especially when dealing
with predominantly Muslim militaries—Turkey and
