The Pentagon, famed as the world’s largest office building, recently underwent a renovation process that took seventeen years and $4.5 billion -- ten times as long and four times the cost of constructing it in the first place. That makes it a potent symbol of a US foreign policy infrastructure built for another era, dominated by a massive, bureaucratic, hopelessly inefficient military machine. Close the Pentagon argues that traditional battlefield warfare is going extinct while the national security threats of the next fifty years –including climate change, pandemics, global financial meltdowns— don’t need a military response. It is time to radically overhaul our foreign policy institutions –and budget-- to focus on diplomacy and global economic engagement.
