    Found it on sale at the local BnN. Hadn't realized that the war party in the U.S. had been active since 1893: the likes of TR wanted to go to war with Britain over Venezuela - idiots. Our foreign/military policy is essentially intended to cure male insecurity over virility by killing the locals as therapy.

    Oh, and that William McKinley was the George W. Bush of his day. Which would make TR his Dick Cheney.
