I would not like to tell these future grandchildren that my generation allowed a bunch of communist to chaotically divide yet another country as they took over. That would be a sorry excuse for them not growing up here in the USA.
Can you explain what these comments have to do with the Confederate flag?
The division of the USA is a grave matter.
Painful for the citizens in the 1860’s.
Painful for the free world in the 2010’s.
The former confederate flag is but one aspect of how the harmony of our union, is getting disrupted. A house divided, can soon crumble.
I am not sure Napoleon was ever really himself after the Russian campaign. What he expected after his victory at Borodino and what really turned out was very different. Expecting the Russians to surrender only having them chase him all the way back to France may have put some doubt in his mind. Maybe that doubt is what affected his decisions at a place like Waterloo. I know in sports that if you loose your confidence it can be hard to get back. I imagine the same could be said about war generals. Just a thought. Enjoyed the post.
