This article discusses clausewitz for diplomatic historians. On the evening of 21 March 2003, just a few days into the war against Iraq, conservative columnist David Brooks said on Jim Lehrer's PBS NewsHour that he has been surprised by how it is all going. They have the secretary of defense negotiating surrender terms before we even engage the enemy. Conservative viewers that night might have expected such ignorance about the nature of war from liberals like Shields, whom they claim do not understand the ways of the world. But Brooks was supposedly a well-read, historically knowledgeable, hard-headed and thoughtful conservative.
