  3. What a surprise – lots of bloodshed, to be followed very soon by…..more bloodshed and more bloodshed, until one day, when we get tired of all the bloodshed – our blood and theirs – we’ll leave, leaving that country in a pool of blood. Not a pretty picture – but we’ll be stupid enough to live that nightmare, even though we are almost certain that that’s what’s gonna happen. We may be smart in certain areas, but when it comes to learning from our mistakes, we are pretty dense…..and stupid!
