William Ewart Gladstone once said that "We look forward to the time when the Power of Love will replace the Love of Power. Only then will our world know the blessings of peace. The war on Libya now being waged by the US, Britain and France must surely rank as one of the most stupid martial enterprises since Napoleon decided to invade Russia in 1812: Invading that country with about 500,000 men, he defeated the Russians at the Battle of Borodino, and entered Moscow on September 14, 1812, but was soon unable to support his army there. He was soon forced to retreat across Russia. Severe cold weather and Russian guerrilla tactics reduced the French Army from 500,000 to one less than 50,000! The rest, as they say, is history!
