Land Wars in Asia


Jeff Huber, blogger at Pen and Sword and At-Largely and author of Bathtub Admirals, discusses the empire’s disaster in Iraq, the danger of the Afghan occupation spreading into Pakistan, the unconstitutional “war powers act,” the difficulty of being an empire with no one but defenseless people to fight, the John McCain pathology of trying to win the Vietnam war by killing Iraqis, the so-called clash of civilizations and the pure evil that is Dick Cheney.

  1. I haven’t listened to the podcast yet, but I plan to. Huber is one of the cleverest writers at, and want to know where I can get an honorary degree in neocon studies for all my independent research of the Bushies for the last 8 years.

  2. Always a learning situation with Commander Huber.

    Mr. Horton does a great interview.

    No sound bites here. Thoughtful discussion of serious stuff.

    As one who has read “Bathtub Admirals” I highly recommend it. Read it in a day, laugh out loud, and cry real tears.
