    I won’t tell you anything new, but this is the same in any other field.
    You’d think history teaches us anything, but that’s so rare.
    Disagree if you will but the world changes, and none of us have no control over it.
    For instance, If only Obama had enough balls to put Vladimir to his place, but it seems like it’s not happening, welcome world war.
    A very deep post, thanks!
