25. Thank you. Americans really should study the history of the
30 Years War (1618-48) to see how irridentism plays itself out.

It's a story as old as humankind itself but one that bears repeating. In Matthew 5:38-39, Jesus explicitly repudiates this 'eye for an eye' way of thinking. That was 2000-some years ago but some are still slow to catch on.

You put this far more eloquently than I ever could.
