I highly recommend seeing this guy and reading his work. He was right on the war from before it even began. You would think that being one of the UN inspectors would have given him credibility with the media and our political leaders, but they all chose to ignore his warnings and pleas to not enter Iraq. Scott Ritter's cogent thinking and astute analysis of the situation in Iraq has made him, in my opinion, one of the few heroes that this country has left.

This monthly series hosted by author and activist Mark Crispin Miller features authors whose books tackle political and public issues from a stance outside the mainstream.

Scott Ritter, former Marine and UN weapons inspector and a strongly persuasive voice in the anti-war movement, will read from his new book Waging Peace which argues that there is a growing despondency amongst the anti-war movement, and proposes the movement seek guidance from sources they normally spurn - that one must study the "enemy" in order to learn the art of campaigning and of waging battles when necessary.

Taking examples from Sun Tzu, Napoleon and other masters of the art of war, Ritter proposes a new strategy for success in fighting against war itself.
