Remembering Pearl Harbor, Remembering 9-11

Today is December 7th, the famous "day of infamy". Our local morning "radio conservative" has gone most of the morning barely mentioning the importance of this date. That is, until listeners began to aggressively call and chastise him. He's one of those "modern conservatives". In other words he has no belief system, although he claims to be a "good" catholic (small "c" intended), he comes across more as a flaming liberal to my old ears.

This date compares and contrasts well with September 11th. When Dec. 7th, 1941 happened, the country united and began to truly fight WWII. When 9-11 happened we united for a short time, invaded two countries and then started a campaign of surrender.

My friends at the Elephant Bar have done a terrific job comparing these two dates. The "read" is very much worth the effort. My associate, Whit, has an entry questioning whether we have the stomach to fight the W.O.T.

... so far, I would have to say NO!
