Despite the plethora of recent reforms in the security sector, military forces may not be best suited or well equipped for today's defence tasks. Force structure and capability building should proceed on the basis of rigorous prioritisation. Special pleading on budgets and technology and ineffective or inappropriate use of both mass and specialist military forces undermine morale and public support. Defence specialists must learn to operate effectively in the real, public, world.
