Can we agree on one thing...

...that the Kaiser was a moron?

I found this book at the store. It says that the Kaiser was involved in dirty tricks on American soil.

Now, look. I think that Germany and, more so, Austria were generally in the right in World War One. I am sympathetic to the Moldbug argument that Britain was the "vampire of the Continent". And sometimes the Kaiser's dirty tricks worked; which is how Russia fell to (mostly non-Russian) Communists.

But... given that... what to make of the Zimmerman Telegram? and of the sinking, as opposed to simple boarding, of the Lusitania? It just seemed so unnecessary, and it got America into a war that the President at the time didn't even really want.
