Things tend to go in cycles.

As long as human nature hasn't changed then history will tend to repeat itself.

I don't think human nature has changed.

for a race like the ancient jews well acquainted with warfare, the mantra of Ecclesiastes may be in fact the end text for the historian.... there is nothing new under the sun.

Of course, as was said in Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz, history is an endless waltz; War, Peace, Revolution.

Things just keep getting worse and worse, 'till they get all the way around, and then everything turns out alright.

I would not say history repeating but history reveals future.

That cycle is a pattern for the future until the world figures how to break it.

In a very general way I think it is.

I think it does easily. Leaders make mistakes at the same places that people before them. Tactics wise it does definitely.
