We all want to save the world...

Sorry but posting is likely to be a bit muddled today. I think I'm coming down with a head cold. I tired to post last night, but couldn't get past just reading the headlines on Memeorandum. Some 50+ stories and over 90% appeared to be either smug punditry, meaningless reports on process and personalities or pure gossip. Fortunately, this morning, I found this Andrew J. Bacevich piece on Afghanistan and warmongering in general. He's probably the only conservative really worth reading anymore and you should read the whole piece. But I'm just going to pull out this one bit, for quote of the day.
Averting a recurrence of that awful day does not require the semipermanent occupation and pacification of distant countries like Afghanistan. Rather, it requires that the United States erect and maintain robust defenses.
This is the key point that should be the foundation of our whole foreign policy. Too bad, that doesn't seem to be the case.
