    The Civilian Expeditionary Force:
    Obama Says 'Burden' Can’t be All on the Military

    By Sunlen Miller

    June 30, 2010 "ABC" -- During his town hall in Racine, Wisconsin today President Obama spoke about the civilian expeditionary force within his National Security Strategy.

    “We just got to be smart about using all the elements of American power, not just one element of American power,” he said.

    The president pointed to Iraq and Afghanistan where military personnel are having to engage in work that he said really should be civilian work– like building schools and bridges -- because of under-resourcing on the civilian side

    “The problem is -- is that we don't have a civilian effort that has always matched up to the military effort. So the military goes in there, they clear out everything, they're -- they're making everything secure, and now the question is, all right, can we get the civilians to come in to work with the local governments to improve the situation? And a lot of times that civilian side of it has been under-resourced.”

    Mr. Obama said the burden should not be all on the military.

    “Make sure that we've got a civilian expeditionary force that, when we go out into some village somewhere and the military makes it secure, let's have that agricultural specialist right there, let’s have that person who knows how to train a police force right there, let's -- let's have all those personnel and let's make sure that we are giving them the support that they need in order for us to be successful on our mission.”

    Colonialism is the building and maintaining of colonies in one territory by people based elsewhere. It can also take the form of subjugation of a minority culture by a majority culture, both of whom exist in the same location. Colonialism is a process whereby sovereignty over the colony is claimed by the metropole, who impose a new government and perhaps a new social structure and economy. Colonialism comprises unequal relationships between metropole and colony and between colonists and the indigenous population.

    Colonialism normally refers to a period of history from the 15th to the 20th century when people from Europe established colonies on other continents. The reasons for the practice of colonialism at this time include:

    The profits to be made.
    To expand the power of the metropole.
    To inculcate the indigenous population to the colonists' world view and way of life.
    Some colonists also felt they were helping the indigenous population by bringing them civilization. However, the reality was often subjugation, displacement or death.

    Colonialism and imperialism were ideologically linked with state-led mercantilism and neomercantilism.[1
