I ran across an article the other day that referrenced John Mearsheimer's stance on the Iraq war. I took a military history class on Modern European warfare during my undergraduate studies at Chicago. I think I read more books that quarter than I ever had in such a short length of time, and I'd say that 75% of them were for Mearsheimer's course, but I enjoyed every page and didn't miss a lecture. His common sense realism on the working of global military and politics to tactical positioning of the infantry just rung true to me. This interview outlines the basic tenets of his theory on global politics.

So it does not surprise me that Mearsheimer held such a oppositional view to the war in Iraq.
