I Agree With a Neocon Historian

David Greenberg of Rutgers is upset at those who would make D.D. Eisenhower pro-peace. Indeed, the militaristic prez was a patron of the military-industrial complex, no matter what he said in his goodbye speech, as I pointed out in American Conservative. Dr. Greenberg is also concerned that bad people have criticized the Merchants of Death, and even used that redolent phrase. Get this straight: Boeing, Lockheed, Martin-Marietta, General Dynamics, and all the others are innocent of war promotion. No marketing for them.
