Dear Log,

«All such diplomatic subtlety was lost in a fierce Washington civil war, well described by both Woodward and Phillips. The truth is that America lacked the self-discipline and confidence for nation-building, let alone empire-building. Rumsfeld may bomb whoever enters his sights. But anyone who thinks America is willing or able to be an imperial power can take comfort from these first rough drafts of history. Empires are not for fidgets.»

Empires are hard! Let's go shopping!
