Rick, to echo what you said further down this thread re our Marshall Plan mentality, what we have to face sooner or later (or simply perish as a nation) is that we have to totally destroy our sworn enemies and literally allow their nations to rot in the sun, utterly desolate and utterly ruined. Rome understood this well, and literally went out and destroyed their enemies before they had to fight them in Rome. Say what you want, but Rome in all it’s glory lasted far longer than we ever will, and Italy 2,000 years later will never again see that kind of splendor and courage.
