Michael J. Totten:
I recently spoke with military historian and former classics professor Victor Davis Hanson in his office at the Hoover Institution on War, Revolution, and Peace at Stanford University. He is the author of more than a dozen works of history, and his new book The Father of Us All: War and History, Ancient and Modern was just released by Bloomsbury Press.
We discussed military history, Peace Studies programs, warfare in the ancient and modern Mediterranean, the Arab-Israeli conflict, Iran's push for hegemony in the Middle East, and the Obama Administration's foreign policy.
The ignorance of Obama shines through in this interview. Simple peace requires a constant and precise effort; something that the American president doesn't seem to comprehend. He might think that his actions will result in lasting peace but in that regard he's as foolish and historically ignorant as JFK.
