Dick Cheney writes of Jarnot’s project:
Homer’s Iliad succeeds in expressing to the millions who “just don’t get it” why we noncombatants owe gratitude, honor, and life pensions to those who go to war on our behalf. The book is visionary: for “Helen,” read “weapon of mass destruction;” the rest falls into place. Bravo to the brave soldiers, and let’s hope it doesn’t take them ten years to get back.
