Rick Shenkman writes at the POTUS blog on the History News Network, where he recently identified "the restaurant law of history":

"Anytime we lose a war you can be sure of one thing. You will suddenly see a lot of new restaurants pop up around the country (and especially in Washington, D.C.). Who will be running them? The losers in our wars. Americans have grown accustomed to eating Vietnamese food. Soon, I'd bet, we'll be eating food from Mesopotamia."
