Set Up To Fail

A short one today but I was thinking that modern wars seem to be set up from the start so that the strongest side initiates agression but then loses. WWI Germany should have won that and would have if the US hadn't come along. WWII Germany again would have gotten away with it if it weren't for us meddling Americans. Korea, technically we're still fighting. There's a cease fire but no armistice. I can't say we won it. Vietnam, they handed us our ass. Gulf War One, well clearly since we hadn't gone a full year without bombing some part Iraq between the end of Desert Storm and 9/11 an argument can be made that our current quagmire is simply part two. Now we're looking at Iran and they're calling in Russia and China who seem to be concerned about the vast investments they've made with their trading partner. I don't see us winning that one.

But the beard... and the glasses... must look away.
