It covers the latest debates, laws and decisions that affect the nation's security, and the way in which the military operates. Those decisions matter as they directly impact on the lives of those who serve in the military, as well as protecting the lives and lifestyles of everyday Americans living at home and abroad. The defense policies of other countries matter too, as does the diplomatic maneuverings between governments. Defense policy has to deal with a changing world that includes traditionally structured enemies with administrations and organized armies. But it also has to deal with new enemies that don't follow the same rules but still have the ability to cause death and destruction. You can stay involved in the debate over defense policy as it deals with these new realities by signing up for the Wiser defense policy news email.
