Will No One Sound the Bugle Call?

Hosted by

A soldier's day once was regulated by bugle calls. "Answer the bugle call" came to describe citizens responding to a national threat. President John F. Kennedy said, "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country."  But after four years of war in Iraq, the bugle call has not sounded. That's according to John McCausland, a retired Army colonel who served in the first Gulf War. He's now senior Fellow at the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs and visiting Professor of Law at Penn State.
