Episode Summary

EDIT
Unintended Consequences: The U.S. at War
AIRED:
Kenneth Hagan and Ian Bickerton on Unintended Consequences: The United States at War.The collapse of Iraq into bloody and chaotic civil war shouldn't be a surprise - but the chaos isn't entirely due to poor war planning and incompetence, Hagan and Bickerton argue; history is a fatal foreteller: the US has a long history of being embroiled in the unpredictable consequences of the wars it has launched.The distinguished military analysts apply a fresh eye to the complicated situations that followed the ten major wars fought by the United States, and reveal the common threads underlying all of them. In stark refutation of Clausewitz and traditional military theory, they contend that these wars transformed American foreign policy and their unpredictable aftermath completely undermined these wars' original goals - Cody's Booksmoreless
