WAR ON PEACE covers a lot of ground. It could be a challenge for some to move through all of the moving parts associated with diplomacy. It isn't until the end that Farrow makes a case for diplomacy.

While not for everyone, I think that this should be on the reading list for anyone (or his/her handler, campaign manager) who aspires to be president.

A very interesting and thought-provoking presentation on the importance of diplomacy and the slow break-down of the State Dept. by several administrations. It cannot all be blamed on Trump. Even Colin Powell talked about the position of the dept. and policy being decided by the VP and the DOD. Military solutions MUST be the very last resort. Diplomacy is less expensive in money and lives than war. But there is a strong feeling among many of our leaders that it is acceptable to have the military make policy. That is not their strong area which is probably why our Constitution had a civilian be the Commander-in-chief. This book is not light reading but patriotic citizens should read it.
