We Refuse To Learn

Look. I have an undergraduate degree in History. But having said that, I can't remember a date or name to save my life. I'm a concept kinda guy. Having said that, we humans are stupid. And Americans are particularly stupid. (I generalize, of course)

We continue to make the same mistakes over and over and over again and expect a different result. It's truly mindboggling. We continue to stick our noses into other people's business and then wonder why they hate us. Duh. We wonder why powerless countries (and/or their renegades) try to get nuclear weapons. Duh. We try to force democracies on others. By definition you can't force a democracy!

Look at Rome, look at the Ottoman Empire, look at...well, us. Vietnam, Russia's Afghanistan, our Afghanistan....the Seven Years War, The HUNDRED Years War, blah, blah, blah.

Oh, and hey, how 'bout those pirates, huh? Here's a novel idea...why don't we stop fucking with them, eh? Maybe we could stop dumping nuclear waste in their water and taking their (now) nuclear fish.

And would someone please make hot, gay love to John Bolton, please? PLEASE?
