We're Makin' War

That War on Terror? We really are in for a long haul.

The document, more than a year in the making, refers to the terrorism fight as the Long War.

Toldyouso. They're not even pretending we can (a) accomplish this in our lifetimes, or (b) actually win in the sense that this "war" will ever be over.

As part of the effort to shift the focus of the military toward more non-traditional terrorist enemies, the plan calls for doubling the procurement of unmanned aircraft, particularly for surveillance; calls for the development of a new long-range strike system, as a greater deterrent against future threats and stresses the need to build strong partnerships both with other nations and other U.S. government agencies.

Yeah, because what we really need is the DoD's tentacles even more deeply into every aspect of our government.

If you're in doubt? I don't like anything about this Administration or their supporters and I loathe the country they're turning us into.

By the way. Afghanistan? The forgotten war there? "Fierce fighting" taking place against...you guessed it, those terrorists we said we'd whupped before we left to invade Iraq.
