Read from February 20 to March 25, 2012

It's a little creepy how very very similar the war in the Philippines and the war in Iraq were - right down to debates of water boarding, the mandate to spread democracy and war profiteering. Teddy Roosevelt's a lot more peppy/less creepy than Dick Cheney, though
