Andrew Bacevich thinks any US military strike in Syria would be misguided. Bacevich is the author of Breach of Trust: How Americans Failed Their Soldiers and Their Country, and a retired US Army officer. Jim Braude and Margery Eagan talked with Bacevich about how a post-9/11 US can effectively use its military — still the biggest in the world by a large margin, still embroiled in Iraq and Afghanistan — to achieve lasting peace.
