On September 11, 2001 we paid a price for our apathy. Today is a day to remember those who lost their lives. However, today (9/11 - ed) is also a day to remember why we do what we are doing in Iraq and Afghanistan and what we may have to do in the months and years ahead.
This is not something that is just going to go away with a battle here or a battle there, or an arrest in London, Rome, or New York. No. This is going to take a major war. America and the rest of the world will have to wake up to that fact. The build-up of aggression and arms and Islamic fascism is extraordinarily similar to pre-WW2 Germany. We are in the opening stages of WW III. I hope I am wrong. But I doubt it. The cancer may have grown but we still have time to destroy IT before IT kills us.
