War in the Graveyard of Empires by Martin Kelly

The neoconservatives have not learned that Persia is the graveyard of empires. In time, the Persians will overthrow their current masters when they can suffer them no longer, in the spirit of Patrick Henry. Only then will they be free. No conqueror or despot, from Alexander to Crassus to its own Shah, has ultimately endured in that country. There is no reason to believe Bush Augustus would be any different.
