When the crackpot in charge of North Korea says we are still at war, he’s actually correct. And where is the feeling of “moral obligation” in England? At NATO? Turkey has an air force, Saudi Arabia has war planes. And what about Israel? Where is the overwhelming chill of concern from China or Japan or South Korea? See who’s willing to underwrite any direct money costs?
My father drove a tank from France to Belgium and into Germany. My stepfather served as a Marine over a year in Korea. I spent the “year of rock-n-roll” (1966) in the jungle in Vietnam. My son spent 12 years on active duty in the submarine services.
