History may not repeat exactly,

but sometimes it does one hell of a job of paraphrasing. Jonathan Schwarz sez:
The 1930 treaty reads almost exactly like U.S. proposals today, starting with the 2007 Declaration of Principles. Only the names have been changed. (Or rather, some of the names; the Iraqi prime minister in 1930 was also named Nouri.)
