List the "contrafactual things" the US leadership has believed?

Faith does not equal believing, that's the point you continually miss.

The English, in at least the one political ring I follow, have
continually denied the obvious facts and pursued ever increasingly bad
ideas to remain in denial. Why should it be different on any other
political front. Much like when they were watching their colonies
revolt - rather than try to keep the peace they preferred to anger the
colonies further. I would never say the English are stupid, or even
ignorant, its just that they are very, very stubborn.
