The Assyrians & the Republicans

I came upon this in a book I'm reading, Empires of the Word: A language history of the world by Nicholas Ostler: "The Assyrian armies rolled over their neighbors to prove the greater might of their kings, and demonstrated their power through orgies of ruthlessness." What has changed in 4,000 years? The encouraging thing is that the Republicans will one day go the way of the Assyrians. Not fucking soon enough but they will.
