Topic - Edward N. Luttwak
A prominent conservative strategist said Monday that a victory for either side in Syria's civil war would be bad news for the United States, as he slammed fellow conservatives for criticizing President Obama's "prudent caution."
Over the past few decades, Edward Luttwak has gained a reputation as the bad boy of strategic theory and historical scholarship. This time, he has outdone himself. He has debunked Sun Tsu, the Clausewitz of the East and much beloved by teachers of military theory for decades. It is about time -- Sun Tsu has been an overrated icon far too long.
It would be "disastrous" if Mr. Assad's regime were to crush the rebellion and emerge victorious, Mr. Luttwak said.
If the rebels win, extremists would try to form a government that would be hostile to both the United States and Israel, said Mr. Luttwak, a scholar at the Center of Strategic and International Studies in Washington.
