Right at the end of today’s Bleat, Lileks comments on the Bay of Pigs:

Ah. Yes. Well. The Bay of Pigs. Well, at least we learned our lesson. Talk strong and act irresolute , and the situation will resolve itself. Neatly and quickly. It’s not like Cuba ever troubled us again.

Indeed.

This explosive event was scheduled to take place a WEEK later on the day after Thanksgiving.
