Four years is a long time

empty boots memorialThe whole time you were in highschool, or college. A huge swath of personal growth and development, but of a fearsome and retributive kind. That's the length of time we've been loosing our bulls in the china shop of Iraq, the length of time their kids have been living with daily bombs and fear of going out in the street, much longer than the length of time that it takes to change welcome to resentment, rejoicing to dread. And no end in sight yet. And our leaders would just as soon forget the whole day, treat an expensive and counterproductive war as part of regular business.

But boy! those liberals were misguided when they predicted a long slog, potential quagmire, no improvement in our world security. How they must regret their advance analysis now!
