Somewhat of a history buff, eh? I like the sepia tones.

I just watched a Bridge Too Far
I really think there are no winners in war.
people just never learn.
If leaders want wars they should take part in them themselves.
Like Bin Laden. He should be right there leading and dying with the rest of them.

Interesting how the times have changed. The forts are history, and for a while it was fairly easy to cross back and forth over the border...but it seems to be becoming more and more complicated.
