Attacking the Sacred Cow of America

The military!!!
Damn you and your unpatriotic thoughts. Support our troops, where is your patriotism?
And the chastisement goes on and on.

Here is a fact for you to chew on a bit.
By all standard measurements we, Americans, lost the last two wars we were involved in. How does that sound? Does it leave a bad taste in your mouth? Or do you, like most Americans, just ignore it and go on with you flag waving patriotism?

Come on my friends, if you really want to support our troops call your congress critter and tell them to stop putting our troops in harm’s way for another senseless war. CALL them, a call is much more effective than an email. A call requires contact with a real person or at the very least it requires a real person listen to the voicemail and do something.

I am posting this with the expectation of Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressing the U.S. Congress and instilling the desire for war in their befuddled minds.

By James Fallows in the most recent issue of The Atlantic Magazine
