Extract

In Reply: I was moved to respond to the heartfelt letter from Mona Wasow, rather that follow the more traditional path of asking for a response from the authors of the studies cited in her comments. I have considerable sympathy with the sentiments of Professor Wasow that “war is not the answer.” Except that sometimes war has been the response to some set of world events, and then we are faced with the behavioral consequences of the resulting conflict. I made a point similar to Professor Wasow’s when I was asked to review the excellent RAND report, Invisible Wounds of War (1), on the recent Gulf Wars. Namely, I suggested that the best way to prevent these injuries and wounds is to avoid unnecessary wars.
