History Repeating Itself: Libya and a Nuclear Meltdown [TIME Magazine]

Time Magazine covers the bombing of Libya and a nuclear meltdown.

You could be forgiven for thinking that the three Time magazines above were published recently, however all three of of the Time Magazines are from the Spring of 1986.


Also a few quotes to ponder over: -

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
 - George Santayana, The Life of Reason 1924

"The past is always a rebuke to the present."
- Robert Penn Warren

History teaches everything including the future.
- Lamartine

"Whoever wishes to foresee the future must consult the past; for human events ever resemble those of preceding times. This arises from the fact that they are produced by men who ever have been, and ever shall be, animated by the same passions, and thus they necessarily have the same results."
- Machiavelli

History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce
- Karl Marx
