Fighting to Win

In Masters of Command by Barry Strauss

DSCF1675“If someone is dangerous enough to fight, then you fight to win. If the Islamic State really is so dangerous to the American homeland in the long term … then it’s irresponsible to tie our hands. It sounds a little bit like Caesar saying he would only use catapults and allied troops but never send Roman legionaries into combat.”
— Barry Strauss, history of warfare expert, professor of history, and author of The Death of Caesar, on President Obama’s Sept. 9 speech to the nation on the Islamic State.
