Membah this?

On December 7, 1941, the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor in an attempt to cripple the US in the Pacific. The US was united in common cause and mobilized for war.

In May, 1945, Germany surrendered. In August of that same year, Japan capitulated as well. A little under four years into the US involvement in the conflict, the war was over.

On November 11, 2001, Al-Quaeda terrorists targetted the World Trade Center in an attack that has been oft compared to Pearl Harbor. The US was united in common cause and mobilized for war.

In May, 2005, we have succeeded in toppling two governments, one of which was attacked solely on the presumption that it might have the means and intent to eventually do us harm, have not brought the individuals responsible for the 9/11 attack to justice, and our specialist troops are now tied up in shit garrison duty.

I am by no means a pacifist, but I really, really dislike when our armed forces are used poorly.

Ok, I'm done.
