And Now for Something Even More Stupid and Dangerous Than the Usual Dangerous Stupidity
As the great foreign policy scholar Dean Wormer of Faber College once said, "Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son." It's also no way to run a foreign policy.

But then you wouldn't know what is about to go terrible wrong(er).
