I’m totally disappointed that learned, waggish friends on social media are not talking more about Marcus Petreius. I mean the dude’s name and his “career” suicide along with his proven military chops against insurgents and his open sympathies with the (lost) Republican cause are begging to be snark-mined. Facebook is just so hoi polloi these days. Sigh.
As a concession to the masses: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marcus_Petreius
Those who don’t learn history are bound to blah, blah, blah, and all that.
