United States of Amnesia?

This morning the US Commander in Chief sent the following tweet:
“Iran never won a war, but never lost a negotiation!”
I sent him this reply:
“With all due respect, and ONLY America’s interests at heart, please do your homework. Study without prejudice the Iran-Iraq war of the 1980s.”
For a short historical background please see IRAN-IRAQ WAR.
I hold no brief for Iran. But, should American citizens dutifully accept such flippant wanna-be-cowboy rhetoric we’ll have proven to be no more advanced than we were in 2003. That is when we as a nation committed trillions to a war that slaughtered hundreds of thousands and that resulted in extreme exacerbation of the situation it purported to resolve.
