Just ask Zbigniew Brzezinski. Along with Henry Kissinger, he is one of the principal architects of Metternich-style diplomacy, the belief that our own security depends on the systematic misery of others.
Not surprisingly, Brzezinski is sad about the end of his era. He and Henry should get together and console each other. The rest of us can tell them to go to hell.
I'm off for a week or two, helping my mother celebrate her 90th birthday. Until then, may your March have no madness, and come in like a lamb rather than a lion.
