"the militarization of anthropology will cause the field to become 'just another weapon' and not a tool for building bridges between peoples.."

"As previously noted the US military has sent shock troops - anthropologists, sociology and social psychologists - with their own troops in both Iraq and Afghanistan, who also donned helmets and flak jackets. By the end of 2007, American scholars in these fields were embedding with the military in AFghanistan and Iraq as part of a Pentagon program called Human Terrain System (HTS)."
