Profesión militar: Obediencia debida frente a la obligación de disentir

Con ocasión de la realización de estudios en el Instituto Universitario Gutiérrez Mellado tuve la ocasión de leer y analizar una serie de documentos de opinión que trataban en profundidad las diferentes facetas presentes en el campo de las relaciones cívico-militares; temas que , habitualmente, no han estado presentes en los diferentes cursos y actividades formativas en la enseñanza militar, ni, por supuesto, en la civil.

UME, para servir

Uno se pregunta, al ver las estadísticas de bajas, por qué no funcionarán los gobernantes con la misma prontitud y eficacia que los militares. Circula un video en el que un general, a pesar de la mascarilla, explica claramente el funcionamiento de las Unidades militares; una perfecta organización en la que un estado mayor planea y dirige las operaciones en curso, mientras otro va programando las operaciones futuras. Todo un engranaje funcionando con eficacia, en silencio y sin alardes, donde cada elemento sabe lo que tiene que hacer y cómo hacerlo, sacando el máximo rendimiento de sus escasos medios, y a pesar de lo imprevisto y desconocido de un enemigo que dio la cara cuando ya estaba dentro.
