The Fog of War - Great DVD

Mar 26th

A couple friends recently mentioned The Fog of War - Eleven Lessons from the Life of Robert S. McNamara. It is a great DVD from the perspective of a former Secretary of Defense, about the errors he made and the lessons he learned in his life.

It is mind boggling to hear about all the fire bombing in Japan, how serious the Cuban missile crisis was, and that the Vietnam war lasted so long due to a lack of empathy. So much has been smudged away from the school books. The DVD concludes a killer quote derived from T. S. Eliot:

We shall not cease from exploring, and at the end of our exploration we will return to where we started, and know the place for the first time.

I just watched The Fog of War a couple of days ago. It is definitely a must watch.

I was really impressed with how willing he was to look back on his life and the actions he took and admit his mistakes. Very courageous.

A lesser man most certainly would have just made excuses and pointed a finger in blame.
