Swords to ploughshares

  • D'Souza Eustace 


The protection and restoration of the environment is the responsibility of all. With the end of the Cold War a new reality takes place and gains ground in ever more parts of the world. Troops are returning to peace time locations. Why not use the Military, to some appropriate degree, for this region-stabilizing task? The Military are fully qualified and equipped to do so, and their use is enhanced by their mobility, communications, and administrative self sufficiency. This paper shows, what has been done, is being done, and can be done, based on the experience of the Indian Army, regarded globally as a role model.
