History is a Harsh Teacher

“Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”
George Santayana

It would be laughable, were it not so horribly tragic.

When the Reichstag Fire occurred in 1933, the German people were so frightened of “Communists” that they allowed Hitler and his cohorts to take over the country. Years later, it was shown that Communists had nothing to do with the fire – but by then, it was too late.

The resultant Nazi Empire fell when it overstretched its military capabilities by invading the Soviet Union, the apparent home of Communism.

Years later, the Soviet Empire fell when it overstretched its military capabilities by invading Afghanistan.

In 2001, the American people were so frightened of “Islamic Fundamentalism” that they allowed the Bush Regime to take over the country, invade Afghanistan – and Iraq - and threaten all unsubmissive Islamic nations.

As a result, the U.S. economy is in danger of collapse.

Just as the Reichstag Fire was an “inside job”, so also was “9/11”.
