Deja vu all over again.

Someone recently said I sounded “bored” with the world.

It’s my own fault: I read too much history.

Safe towns in Vietnam or Iraq are the safe castles or hilltops during the Hundred-years’ war.

Iraqi snipers schooling to take out occupation troops by one bullet from an unassailable distance through known body armor openings:  the English archers taking out the French knights at Agincourt.

I could go on – and on – and on — but… it would be boring.

We may know history, but the events are always wearing a different costume —  so we’re condemned to repeat it anyway.
