Quote of the Day

And what a distressing quote it is. This was in an email from Sojourners:

The American people and the governing class have accepted that war has become a permanent condition. Protracted war has become a widely accepted part of our politics.

-- Andrew Bacevich, retired Army Col. (and now history professor at Boston University) whose son was killed in Iraq in 2007, on how eight years of war have affected American foreign policy.

  1. Unless we have a family member in the military most of us do not really think of the war. In fact, are we "Officially" at war? with Iraq? with Afghanistan? Was war "officially" declared? By Congress? I think most of us think of the "wars" as simply "Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld's Follies."
