Quote of the Day

. Thursday, January 13, 2011

From Phil Arena, dishing some snark to academic IR:

Of course, we know democracies abhor violence, are ill-suited for bearing the costs of prolonged war (especially counterinsurgency warfare), only choose wars they know they can win, and win quick, and all of this is true because their leaders are held accountable for their decisions. So something must be wrong here. It can't be that our understanding of how democracy works is deeply flawed.
