Deficiencies often reveal themselves on the battlefield, so reforms should follow military defeat. Foreign expertise and information should be actively sought to promote the adoption of new practices, and the state should make the changes necessary to mobilize sufficient resources, even if this means transforming itself. On the face of it, the Ottoman case appears to support neorealism. 19 Studies were made of Western methods of waging war, and treatises on military science were translated into Turkish.

The role of the military as the focus of power (and of social mobility and even the expropriation of wealth) will remain in many states. It is difficult to believe that the ethos of their organization will be primarily set by external military purposes. This will be even more the case if the hegemonic power of the United States can maintain international peace, as in Latin America. The military will therefore acquire advanced weaponry, as if preparing for foreign war, but will primarily fix its sights on domestic goals.
