Armies for Democracy — Past, Present, and Future
Has a grand tradition of “military liberalism” come to a dead end in Iraq?

by Victor Davis Hanson

Why do we continually get involved in troubles around the world, can’t we just take care of our problems at home and not try to solve the worlds problems?

This article by VDH address the long history of democracies and republics involving themselves in the business of others in their world. Beginning from the Greeks and Romans, VDH traces the phenomenon to our present day, and our involvement in IRAQ. Fascinating reading from a fine historian, hope you enjoy.

Regards,
Don
