I treasure everything that Victor David Hanson writes. I agree with most of his opinions.
I have no use for a crypto communist like Sachs. On the other hand, Hanson is a neo con, and one of those who argued us into the position we are in where we are overstreached and bankrupt. Dr. Hanson knows and knew far better than that because he wrote about the collapse of the Athenian empire when they became overstretched and started to defend the periphery, which they could not afford, thereby losing the core of their Empire and existence.
A lot of the time Dr. Hanson writes tellingly, but no competent scholar would make the egregious error that he made. We are going to be paying for Bush's escapades for several decades.
