Gee, what would FDR think of this post Pearl Harbor Day commentary?
NYT RICH: 'WE HAVE LOST IN IRAQ'
Or so says our brave theater critic. But, no, Mr. Rich. We only lose if we dishonor our ideals, our integrity, and all those who have served and sacrificed and leave before we are done. But, of course, that's the "It's Vietnam, man" game plan, isn't it? I wonder what kind of war Mr. Rich and those who think like him could ever win -- ever.
It took Edward Gibbons ten years and six volumes to document the decline and fall of the Roman Empire. I fear our demise from the highpoint of the post World War II era will not take nearly as long to document. You can hear your chains rattling long before they make contact with your skin. Folks, our civilization is dying.
