(What an age of charismatic leaders that was!  FDR, Churchill, Hitler & Mussolini.  I don’t think Stalin was charismatic, just terribly shrewd.  If guys like this are what it takes to start and fight a World War, maybe we’re better off with most of the leaders we have now.  Obama does have charisma, but nowhere’s near as much as FDR.  As bad as things might seem, we should be able to avoid another World War with our current crop of “leaders”.  At least we all better hope so.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    That is an excellent article. That image of Churchill, FDR and Stalin is haunting. Then comes the irony! One conflict follows another. It’s terrible.
    Thank you!
