"This is the broken way of war "

Ten years of war have passed, and before that a thousand years of war with lulls and pauses,
but the din of the scimitar being sharpened for war never truly stopped. Each year that passes is a chance to learn the lessons of the years that have gone by and to remedy their mistakes. The best way to pay tribute to the dead is to unlearn our mistakes so that what happened to them will not happen again. Everything else is the fragmentation of self-indulgence, the therapy of tears, the sensitivity of grief, that will ease our pain, but not our fate. -- Daniel Greenfield

Your Say

If we "unlearn" our mistakes, wouldn't we be prone to make them again?

Time does not arrest its course for nations any more than for men. When we think things are stationary, it is because we fail to see their movements--
