Alexander, Napolean, Bush

<p>On MSNBC, they're now talking about what to do after the war on Iraq. Largely paraphrased,</p>
<blockquote><p>"We should then go to Syria."</p>
<p>"You mean militarily?"</p>
<p>"When you have 250,000 troops and have just won a war, you don't need to fight. You just go there."</p></blockquote>
<p>A map of the region is pulled up as the analyst talks about the next steps after victory in Iraq. I could have sworn I heard glee in his voice.</p>
<p>This is not talk of peace. If anything, it has grown into a rationalised conquest. What, you think they didn't use to do that? I'm sure Hitler didn't go around saying "we gotta kill people because we feel like it". Heck, even the early American settlers themselves must have concocted some lame excuse for the genocide of millions of native Americans.</p>
<p>I'm very concerned over the state of things right now. It's almost like Washington has lost her mind, and the term "peace in the Middle East" a clich&eacute; that rhymes. A page of world history is being written before our very eyes, and I fear America's portion be written with the blood off soldiers and foreigners.</p>
