G.I. Joe No Longer the Real American Hero?
Ahh, the self-styled intellectuals who don't learn from the lessons of history are doomed...
Human history has been a series of wars occasionally punctuated by relatively peaceful times, growing out of the complete annihilation of a set of enemies. Rome vs. Carthage, US vs. Japan and Germany, etc. Any politician, moral leader, etc. who tries to tell you anything different is lying to you.
I really hope you don't consider yourself to be "educated." At the very best, you and the "new castrati" like you are useful idiots.
