Re: Armchair Warfare

Has any government, anywhere, been anything other than corrupt and/or inept to some degree? Some of the more inept I can think of were not particularly corrupt; some of the more corrupt were not particularly inept. Some, of course, were spectacularly corrupt and even more inept at the same time. Those tended to not last long. Well, except for Mexico under the PRI. The PRI managed to stay in power for, what, 70 years? Something like that, despite being unbelievably corrupt and inept. It helped that they were propped up by el colosso del norte.
