Later tonight, I'll finish reading New Glory, the latest from the indispensable Ralph Peters.
New Glory is the one book to read, if you have any interest at all in this new war we're in.
Peters has given me an increased respect for our armed forces (if such a thing is even possible) and a new disdain for the Pentagon, military contractors (one of which employs my bride), Donald Rumsfeld (even though I still love watching his press conferences), and the 1648 Peace of Westphalia.
Buy yourself a copy, and read it with all due seriousness.
NOTE: I linked to Amazon.com, only because that's where I bought my copy. I am in no way being compensated by Amazon.com. Or by Ralph Peters, for that matter. Although if I ever meet the guy, the drinks are on me.
