I am reading "The Guns of August" by Barbara Tuchman. It is the best book I've ever read where people, diplomacy, ambitions, agendas, and mistakes are all combined to explain the origins of the first industrial war.

I can't help but be chagrined that the next one may finally kick off because of cartoons.

Maybe it's just a sign of the times.
