This Day in the History of Big Time Flip Flopping

On this day in 1943, Italy declared war on Germany, its former Axis partner. In fact, Italy changed sides in both the 1st and 2nd World Wars. A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds. In my humble opinion, after clearing the German troops out of Sicily and gaining a foot-hold around Salerno, they should have made an amphibious landing, led by Patton, on the Adriatic coast near Ravenna and trapped the German forces fighting in the shin area of the Italian boot. Had Mark Clark been a Soviet general, he would have been shot.
