The Romans? The US government has yet to learn anything from the Soviet-Afghan War.

Dead! Bluto's right. Psychotic... but absolutely right. We gotta take these bastards. Now we could do it with conventional weapons, but that could take years and cost millions of lives. No, I think we have to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part!

FWIW - Roman Numerals are part of a language for using an ABACUS.


Our cultural, religious and political elites have failed to learn from anywhere. They seem to be expecting the same responses that failed to work the first few hundred times to work this time.


I believe the underlying cause of the rise of Islamic terrorism is the abject poverty and lack of any hope for a decent future created by the concentration of wealth and opportunity by the political and petroleum elites. If the Islamic rulers had distributed the oil wealth by investing and industrializing their own countries they might not be facing this revolt. I believe they failed to do so because they could afford to buy anything made anywhere and held their impoverished and hopeless populations in complete contempt.


The terrorists may strike out at the Western World but the ultimate target is to control the Islamic Holy Grounds by expelling the corrupted rulers blaspheming the places.

Latino is usually a mixed race and a geographic area.
