The American voters are responsible for the rise of ISIS. As I have said over and over, America has been the new France since the Vietnam war. Invading countries, doing a piss poor job of fighting the war even when we have had an overwhelming advantage in weaponry and technology, then retreated behind our boarders to leave the populace to the people we were fighting. ISIS is a creation of the American Publics flakiness when it comes to fighting a war.
- There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
- Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
- Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.
