History Lesson

The United States has fallen out of lone superpower status.  Not so much because we are not a superpower, but because we have allowed our power to be negated by half measures, and foolish decisions.

In World War Two, the United States went to war against the Germans.  We drove the Germans out of France and toppled Nazi Germany.  We did not stop there.  We destroyed the Nazi government and forced all Nazi's out of power.

In the war to liberate Kuwait we drove the Iraqis out of Kuwait but we stopped there.  In WWII we did not liberate France and allow the Nazis to stay in power.  We eventually were forced to topple the Iraqi government but we allowed them to bring in a new government that was not stable, did not represent the people and was not overly friendly to America.  We have lost our way and we need to learn the lessons of history; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
