History repeating???

C.I.R. Press Editorial

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- I saw an interesting documentary (real version, not Moore Style) on the History Channel about George Washington. At the surrender of Yorktown they showed the above painting. They always say history repeats itself, but this is just comical. In that split second I noticed a white flag flying on the left side (the side surrendering), and the US flag on the right... very interesting. Later on in the documentary they tell of Washington having to address possible rebellious troops and saying:

You are not a friend of this Army, you are not a friend of this Country, you are not a friend of mine, if you want to turn on our Government...

I think some on the left side of our political spectrum may have something to learn in that.
