Found this while browsing through Chez Nadezhda's del.icio.us fresh produce, aptly billed as "news, analyses & conversations or an embarassment of niches." She has it listed as "Tony Cordesman on the problems of metanarratives in military history." I recognized it as my own entry of October 23.
With so many new readers who missed the original post and don't have time to browse through the War Historian archive, I figure it's worth calling to your attention.
The entry introduces and comments upon a lecture given on October 19 by Anthony Cordesman at the Kennedy School of Government. His title was "Iraq, Grand Strategy, and the Lessons of Military History." It could equally well have been called:
Tony Cordesman on the Military Metanarrative
