Operation Enduring Freedom started just over ten years ago on 7 October 2001, beginning with massive airstrikes in order to soften up most military targets within Afghanistan. It's secondary purpose was to give the Taliban a heads up as to what was to come. What's shocking is just how many people have either no idea why OEF is still going, let alone why it was started, but also those who are playing the "historical self-delete" routine mentally. Many of those who play at the latter are on the leftward side of the media. The concerted effort on the part of the Professional Left Media to "Vietnam-ize" the ongoing conflict in Afghanistan will be gone over, as well; the whole "baby killer" aspect of those in charge of media and academia from just over forty years ago is once again being offered up. Far too often are military personnel being sacrificed on the altar of the media in order to not reflect poorly on the Beloved Kenyan Premiere in the West Wing. Not unlke during the Vietnam War how all the blame rested firmly on General Westmoreland's shoulders, without a single smudge getting on Lyndon Johnson; the same who ramped things up even greater than the original plan John F. Kennedy was putting into play. So ladies & menfolk... sit down, strap in & hold on! [WARNING! Questionable words may be used in the process of this episode... so you can't say you weren't given a heads up!]
