Their emphasis on war’s inherent tendency to defy attempts to limit or control its course was perhaps best stated by Rear-Admiral J. C. Wylie in 1967. Contradicting the Clausewitzian dictum, he questioned the utility of any active use of military force as a servant of policy except as a final resort. In contrast to the preoccupation of his contemporary strategists like Thomas Schelling with the precise calibration of force, he argued instead that military violence inevitably tended to cripple the policies in whose name it was invoked as it developed a momentum of its own: War for a non-aggressor nation is actually a nearly complete collapse of policy.

In suggesting that warfare takes over where politics leaves off, it rejected the sovereignty of the political dimension of war. The logic of policy ceases to apply once war begins.
