Twelve Years Later...

september11 Commencement of hostilities

... we are still at war with the Muslim world, and it most certainly is still at war with us.

... we have lost the strategic advantage of having large concentrations of forces in Iraq and Afghanistan, surrounding Iran, and the mullahs are well on their way to acquiring nuclear weapons in order to hasten the coming of the Twelfth Imam.

... in addition to the 3,000 souls lost in 2001, more than 5,000 soldiers have perished in the "War on Terror," and for absolutely no strategic purpose or effect.

... our best fighting generals have been sacked, on one pretense or another, since the start of combat operations in the Af-Pak theater.

... we have active hostiles serving openly in our Armed Forces.

... political correctness has spread to all corners of the Armed Services, including the Marine Corps, and is directly responsible for the Bradley Manning and Major Hasan fiascos; there will be more to come.
