Human nature never has changed and never will change. We forget that at our own peril, so there are two undeniable facts of life we must not forget. No. 1: If your potential foes don’t like or respect you, then you’d better hope they fear you. No. 2: In any disagreement or conflict, if one party is willing to use force and the other isn’t, the party willing to use force will almost always win.

Coming off eight years of Bill Clinton, we had 9/11. Going into the sixth year of President Obama, we have the Russian forcible takeover of Ukrainian territory. Coincidence?
