Conversations with History: Victor Davis Hanson

This is an interesting video, however it is nearly an hour long.

From the UCTV youtube channel:
Conversations Host Harry Kreisler welcomes historian and classicist Victor Davis Hanson for a discussion of the Peloponnesian War and its lessons for today. He compares that conflict with the war in Iraq. He talks about imperial ambition, the conflict between civilizations, and military power as an instrument to achieve democratization in the struggle between modernity and tradition.

    Though this is an incredibly interesting conversation, I could not help feeling like I was watching a Monty Python skit.
