More on Yemen:
The Yemen Embassy story, as originally reported, has now been slightly “softened,” in subsequent “official” reports. However, given the lying history of the BHO Administration, I believe little contained in any such “official” statement.
Their “official” version of events in Benghazi was subsequently proven to be a pack of self-serving lies! Same with the IRS scandal. Same with the “Fast and Furious” scandal, ad nauseam!
As a civilization, we are at war, as we have been, more or less contiguously, since our inception so many centuries ago.
It’s a shooting war. We have to fight!
There is nothing “fair” in confronting a vicious, mortal enemy. There are ultimately only winners and losers. History will have scant comment on losers!
In the interim, there are also the dead and maimed, and recurrent nightmares that chase old warriors at night.
Only the rich and the fat, who weren’t there, can speak of “fairness” in war, endlessly discussing their professed superior intellect and morality with fellow couch-huggers. They love to speak of how “we” beat the enemy, while real warriors silently toss and turn in their beds.
For one, I am disinclined to speak if war with comfortable people who never walked through thorns with bare feet, who cannot even look at a rifle or blade without recoiling at such visible representations of “uncivilized conduct.”
“It appears we have appointed our worst generals to command forces, and our most gifted and brilliant to edit newspapers! In fact, I discovered by reading newspapers that these editor/geniuses plainly saw all my strategic defects from the start, yet failed to inform me until it was too late. Accordingly, I’m readily willing to yield my command to these obviously superior intellects, and I’ll, in turn, do my best for the Cause by writing editorials as they do now, after-the-fact.”
