Just because we're doing it wrong doesn't mean they will.

I've always liked qadaffi, sure he was a rabid, insane dictator but his united Africa stuff chilled the west to the bone.
If he's gone, I don't see Libya improving....

Just cause Democracy is shitty doesn't mean it can't be a step forward.

Of course, it can be a step back too, we'll see.

Reagan didn't think too much of him. Conversely, it seems Israel wanted to keep him around because they knew he had limits to just how crazy he was, as opposed to some of his higher ups.

Please, even Rome eventually went, "Fuck this" and went empire.

So did the Star Wars Galaxy, for that matter.

The Roman Empire had the right idea, just the leaders were quack jobs.

That always happens in an autocracy, sooner or later.  Usually sooner.

Only took Rome two tries.

Nah, it was there in the originals too.  Not to mention all the XU stuff.

The Old Republic was mentioned in the very first movie.

...and anything written by George Lucas is considered canon, whether you want it to be or not.
