Ilario Pantano talked about his book, Warlord: No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy, published by Threshold Editions. He argued that the U.S., as a society, has moved away from embracing offensive warfare. He said that in Iraq and Afghanistan, because of moral and political considerations, the U.S. military has restrained itself from completely destroying the enemy and winning the war. He also argued that the volume of media coverage of the war on terrorism has overwhelmed the American public’s ability to process what is happening. As a result, he said, an increasing number of people are tuning out the war. After his presentation he responded to audience members' questions.

The event was held at the Country Club of Landfall. close
