Oh Goody. A new commitment to fear.

Seems that we have made the jump to make the War on Terror or replacement for the Cold War with the statement that we are facing a minimum of 15 years for the battle. Read here.

Now this may be good for the military supplies in the West. It may also be good to keep the plebs in fear and under control. After all a war requires sacrifice. Something like ID cards for example. Taxes to fund the war. Laws passed to remove rights.

Funny that.

All that for a raggedy taggety army that can't even set off simple bombs with some level of competence. With leaders in a far away land with no real C3I. With solders who are so backwards the only thing they can use are weapons supplied by us or simple edged weapons. We are vastly superior in all respects, technological and moral yet we cower in fear.

The media and our government has a lot to answer for. And, we, the people, are being lead like sheep to the slaughter. All the time thinking how nice it is to be looked after. How stupid are we?

In the meantime we will fight with one hand tied behind our backs in our usual PC way so that we can allow them some victories to justify a tightening of the grip.

What a future we are leaving our kids.

Can't disagree with any of it although the time frame is interesting and doesn't accord with my info, which puts it earlier. No matter.

What bit is earlier? Do you mean it will be less than 15 years?
