14 Aug 2004 Why We Fight
I’m a couple of days late in noticing, but Redhunter has posted an excellent essay on the war on terror. One of several notable points:
By carrying the war to the enemy we have forced them to fight where we want to fight, at a time and place of our choosing. That they are carrying out ambushes and bombings does not change this, for these are merely tactical offensives, and do not change the basic nature of the campaign. By carrying the war to them we are on the offensive. We have taken the war into their neighborhood, and by doing so have kept it out of ours.
