Eduardo Santos

So I’ve been reading Barry Buzan’s People, States and Fear for my Intl. Security course, and I came across this rather brilliant quote from the ex-Colombian President, Eduardo Santos:

“What we are doing is building up armies that weigh nothing in the international scale, but which are juggernauts for the internal life of each country. Each country is being occupied by its own army.”

Now I cannot help but be crack a smile at just how true that sounds in relation to Pakistan.
