History does often tend to repeat itself, and it is invaluable to know the patterns of history to be on guard against the repetition on negative patterns. In the past 60 years, there have been repeated occurrences of the GOP opposing and even sabotaging attempts to reduce international tension initiated by democratic administrations. After years of feverishly opposing any Democrat led rapprochement with China, Nixon jumped at the opportunity, and was lauded for it. Nixon and Kissinger sabotaged a possible early resolution of the Vietnam war prior to Nixon's election, and than tragically escalated the war for years before evacuating in defeat. The Contra warfare in Nicaragua was illegally supported and maintained for years by Republican plotting and deceit. The deceit involved in Bush and Cheney misleading us into the Iraqi war are well known. And now the GOP are leading opposition to nuclear agreement negotiations with Iran. Beware of the repetition of past patterns, whether it is ties with the military-defense industry, being a party full of war hawks, or just being stupid, the Republicans have proven themselves to often close the door on peace prospects, to be the party seemingly preferring conflict and war.
