Mesopotamia, sir? Why should I give a fig for Fillmore's Mesopotamian statements? General Washington, our beloved Cincinnatus taken from us too soon, told us to avoid foreign entanglements, and wiser words by a wiser man ne'er were spoken.

Fillmore. Last president to serve, member of a dying political party.

You're giving me chills, Princess...

Matty Boy, I think that's a Jefferson quote: "Peace, commerce,
and honest friendship with all nations -- entangling alliances
with none."

Hi, anonymous. Washington's farewell address warned against permanent foreign alliances and an over-powerful military establishment being antithetical to the continuation of the republic.

Jeez, how did we elect a pussy like him to the presidency twice? Oh, yeah...

Hey, Fillmore was one of McCain's drinking buddies.
In fact, Fillmore was said to shape McCain's views on Mesopotamia.
