Patriot Day 2009

Lest We Forget.

Keep in mind the War on Terror continues.   Keep those on the myriad of front lines in your thoughts and prayers.  Also consider checking out Michael Yon’s site for a front-line perspective on the war and our allies’ efforts.  Be sure to also look at The Long War Journal for the bigger picture.

  1. The so-called War on Terror is over. That was Bush’s strategic error. Now the question is, will the Obama administration pursue a doomed counterinsurgency strategy in Afghanistan/Pakistan, or can they come up with an exit strategy?

    The military-industrial complex is alive and well and pushing hard for endless warfare. Just the other day, retired General Barry McCaffrey and Michael O’Hanlon of Brookings were on TV discussing whether a “burn rate” of $4 billion a month in Afghanistan was enough. Bear in mind that’s four times the Afghan GDP.

    We’ll always remember the biggest terrorist attack in history. Unfortunately, our leaders remind me of what Talleyrand said about the Bourbons: they have learned nothing and forgotten nothing. The purpose of the 9/11 attacks was to provoke the U.S. and get us hopelessly mired in Afghanistan. Even George Will has warned that we have to get out ASAP.

  2. This post was intended as a post honoring those who died and those continuing to make sacrifices. It is not intended to be a political debate platform. I ask you to please leave it as such.

  3. When you make a statement that “the War on Terror continues,” that’s a political statement whether or not you want to debate it now.
