Hour Two

Friday  15 Feb 2013 / Hour 2, Block A:  . Michael Vlahos, Naval War College, in re: Drone Killings vs Jefferson Davis's Partisan Ranger Act vs Franz Lieber's 1863 War Rules for Lincoln;  1 of 2

The Civil War is a useful metaphor — also, the rules of engagement whereby we went after Japanese cities in World War II. Lieber and our bombing ROE (against Japan mostly) in WWII speak to the new American (Union) ethos of legal frameworks ueber alles, while Davis's harkens back to the freebooter/Viking raider/pirate tradition of Anglo-American arms that we see exalted by Andrew Jackson, et al. — and which has its resonance today among mujahideen fighters (and their Saudi/Gulf prince supporters) today. Globalist Analysis > Global History
