Salt Lake City, UT – The scholar Alasdair Roberts says that many Americans tell an oversimplified tale about the war in Iraq. They fault the president and his powerful cronies for everything gone wrong. The truth though, according to Roberts, is much more complicated, and the American public shares the blame. Friday, we're rebroadcasting our conversation with Alasdair Roberts about the unrealistic demands we place on our government and how little we are willing to sacrifice to make them happen. (Rebroadcast)

Alasdair Roberts' article The War We Deserve appeared in the November/December 2007 issue of Foreign Policy.
