I've got to read this book. This guy is talking about a "technology-hyped mood" toward war.
Some Balkan American guy named Andrew Bacevich (bah cheh vitch) is on C-Span 2's Book TV at this moment, telling "too much truth." [Now they're discussing what he said.] His new book is, The New American Militarism. He's using words & phrases like, the old view of war was "barbarism, brutality, ugliness, and waste" ... while today we have hi-tech warfare - "smart weapons, new vision of war new lexicon" - war was becoming "surgical, frictionless post-modern abstract, virtual," ... 'cost-effective', 'humane', even 'thrilling' ...we're in the midst of a "technology-hyped mood" toward war.
