NUNTII: A New Spin on the Rome-U.S. Thing

Well, if nothing else, the less-well-known emperors are making their way into the news. The Denver Post has an opinion piece on the Middle East which opens:

The ancient Romans had a word - discrimen - that describes a situation where a choice could bring either success or dismal failure. Discrimen is an appropriate descriptor for the choices that Washington confronts today in the Middle East.

After explaining the Middle East stuff, it closes:

In 250 A.D., the Roman Empire, the hegemon of its time, waged war against the Goths but, after some initial success, the legions were drawn into a marshy area and suffered a major defeat in which the Emperor Decius and his son were both slain. If the U.S. continues its present policy, will we be able to emerge from the current swamp in a way that promotes U.S. goals?

More on Decius at the DIR site ...

1. n. an abnormal state or condition resulting from the forced migration from a lengthy Classical education into a profoundly unClassical world; 2. n. a blog about Ancient Greece and Rome compiled by one so afflicted (v. "rogueclassicist"); 3. n. a Classics blog.

Publishing schedule:
Rogueclassicism is updated daily, usually before 7.00 a.m. (Eastern) during the week. Give me a couple of hours to work on my sleep deficit on weekends and holidays, but still expect the page to be updated by 10.00 a.m. at the latest.
