  •  I have read A peace to End All Peace and I highly (6+ / 0-)

    recommend it to anyone who wants to understand the roots of this conflict. Americans used to believe in a fair fight, that was before they became the bullies of the world.

    •  Americans were bullies (0+ / 0-)

      before the Revolution, as part of the British Empire fighting Spain, France, and Native Americans. The American idea of a fair fight is one that our guys won, or at least can pretend they won, as expressed in the doctrine of Manifest Destiny. Except for Neo-Confederate Lost Causers who claim that Yankees didn't fight fair just because there were too many of them with too many guns.

      Back off, man. I'm a logician.—GOPBusters™
