Independence Day 2011

Independence Day, ten years on, and what do we have to show for our increased domestic security presence?

A small handful of wars,

one dead evil mastermind,

a ruined economy,

third world nation status imminent,

and a malaise that would make Jimmy Carter blanch.

Surely we have more respect for our fallen citizens, emergency responders, and military personnel!

[ NB: this post is twenty days late because it lay in ‘Drafts’ until I read War by Sebastian Unger, at which time it crystallized. I highly recommend the ‘trilogy’ of War, Infidel, and Restrepo ]
