I don't have much to say about this except that is a terrific read. I think Dr. Hanson is one of the clearest, most compelling thinkers we have today on national defense issues.
Just to give you taste, here's his closing paragraph:
". . . a half-educated, vindictive buffoon like Michael Moore and all the ignorance that he stands for have captivated a foolish cultural elite. Let us face it: the Left in this country has gone absolutely crazy. Without worries of rebuke or censure, the dinosaurs of the 1960s really do wish us to give one final gift of their wisdom and humanity—and so does its best to bring us a repeat of American choppers fleeing the embassy roof, circa 1975, with millions left behind awaiting death, reeducation camps, and exile."
