The American Conservative -- It's All Greek to Victor Davis Hanson
OK, don't get all worked up, people! I'm about to save a bunch of articles here that discuss the parallels between ancient Greece--especially Thucydides' account of the Peloponnesian war--and modern times. I'm not saying I endorse all these views--or any of them. This article, from 2005, is by a guy who really, really dislikes Hanson's "A War Like No Other" (about the aforementioned Pel. War). I'm stashing it here so I can come back and digest it later, when I have more time to think rationally.
