I thought this one had a familiar apocalyptic feel to it. End of triumph, so to speak… Unravelment (I think I made that word up) of triumphalism.
Speaking of arcs of triumph… the Telegraph headlines, FP top, that they need more troops in Afghanistan. Why even link, the same nasty bloody dirge. Sinkhole of empires. Maybe we and they can follow their more than 150 year old breadcrumbs from the last go ’round.
What a nightmare.
