"AMERICA WINS THE WARS BUT LOSES THE PEACE" | 2003-03-22

It is an axiom of American history that America wins the fighting and loses the peace.

For example, America won World War I for the Allies in a matter of months after they had been bogged down in trench warfare for four years. It was a famous victory.

But World War I led directly to World War II.

America was instrumental in destroying Nazi Germany and militaristic Japan. It was supposed to victory over tyranny. But over the next decade a quarter of the entire human race was turned over to Communism in Europe and Asia.
