Town Square: The Strategy of War

Wars continue and we seem shocked when civilians – especially children -are maimed or killed. But the US has historically engaged in practices to win wars that have injured and killed civilians – its own and those in other countries. So how does this affect our judgments of war and why do we often want war to be waged with compassion? Next on Town Square, a conversation few want to talk about: the strategy of war. Brad Glosserman, Executive Director of Pacific Forum CSIS and HPU Social Sciences Chair Carlos Juarez guest.
