Bill Roggio, Editor for the Long War Journal, joins the show to discuss ISIS and the Middle East
If you fell asleep on Memorial Day and woke up on Labor Day, your head is probably swimming. The situation in the Muslim world from Libya to the Iranian border has turned in to some strange chaos if you have not been paying attention - but when you look at the details and trendlines, the logic is a lot clearer.
The long war has not gone anywhere, like a field untended, the weeds have returned and are prospering.
To help us understand developments over the summer, coming back to Midrats for the full hour to discuss this and more will be Bill Roggio, senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. Bill is also the President of Public Multimedia Inc, a non-profit news organization; and the founder and Editor of The Long War Journal, a news site devoted to covering the war on terror. He has embedded with the US and the Iraqi military six times from 2005-08, and with the Canadian Army in Afghanistan in 2006. Bill served in the US Army and New Jersey National Guard from 1991-97.

Bill Roggio, the Managing Editor of The Long War Journal, joins the show to discuss the many conflicts & terror groups out there.
It hasn't gone anywhere, the Long War, that is.
People may be suffering whiplash having to look back to Europe in the middle of a Pacific pivot, and the Arab spring wilted in to extremism and bloodshed - but the war against the West still goes on from lone wolf attacks at home, to drone strikes across the swath of southwest, south, and central Asia.

Joining us on the show today will be Conflict MMA Promotions CEO Jared Williams to discuss the upcoming COnflict 23 event set for December 6th in Hardeeville, SC. With an incredible 2014 almost in the books for the promotion, today we look back at the year and dive right onto Fight Club Hardeeville in what is sure to be another great Conflict event.
Stay tuned to War of the Words all this week and next as we continue to bring these great fighters from the cage to your ear drums ahead of Dec 6th's fantastic card. And be sure to meet us there in Hardeeville for what promises to be one of Conflicts most explosive cards, and one hell of a way to close out 2014.
"From August- December we will have held a show every month and only repeated a city once (Columbia, SC) which is a goal achieved that seems unreal for us. 5 events, 4 cities, 5 months sounds so absurd that I honestly try to figure out how it comes together like it does, but it always does and it’s always fun. It was incredible to add Macon, Myrtle Beach, and Hardeeville to the growing list of cities we go to.
Key moments for me in these last few events have been #1 Alexa Conners comeback KO over Allison Ainley in Columbia in her 145lb title defense, Kobe Wall earned two KO’s in two weeks in two weight classes (Macon & Savannah), seeing our heavyweight champion sign and get the opportunity to live out his dream fighting for Bellator, and the emergence of Lamar Brown, Mark Trader and Eddie Miller as future stars within the promotion. Oh, and Adrian Henderson Vs Nick Smiley was an absolute stunner, as was Ben Brewer Vs Micah Miller! So many great moments. Did I mention our champ JJ Aldrich also signed with Invicta?"

Happy Thanksgiving! Matt and Nick are here to talk about side dishes. Oh, and fantasy football. But mostly side dishes.

Inside the War Nest is where you must be the day before the BIG match-up versus the Dallas Cowboys with Jim Williams & "Frat House Mike" McShane talking "turkey" about the most important game of 2014 for our Philadelphia Eagles.
First, they look at last week's 43-24 "that's a gimme -- pick it up" win against the Titans. Ahhh, but was it? Mark Sanchez was "strictly" OK - he's still turning the ball over. If felt like Darren Sproles was part of the game, but was he? Defense let up a lot of yards & the Titans rookie QB threw against them for 345. How confident are you going into Dallas?
Jim & Mike welcome special guest Jordan Ross from www.CowboysHQ.com to look at this game as politely and sportsmanlike as possible. These two match-up well both offensively & defensively. but is DeMarco Murray being overused? - can Mark Sanchez play well on the road? - Tony Romo has been pretty darn good this season (ahem . . . #2 in QB Rating)!
THIS doesn't look good for the Eagles . . yet "da' Boys" are only favored by 3! What's THAT telling you?
Plus, could Maclin be the biggest threat to the Cowboys & Riley Cooper is mouthing off about Jeremy Maclin? Are you kidding?
Join the Arm Chair General's of Inside The War Nest, Jim & Mike as they debate & engage the hottest Eagles topics AND, take your calls at 347 - 826 - 9964.
13 years in to a the long war, what have re relearned, mastered, forgotten, and retained for future use? What have we learned about ourselves, the nature of our latest enemy, and the role of our nation? What have those who have served learned about their nation, their world, and themselves?
Iraq, Afghanistan, the Islamic State, and the ever changing global national security ecosystem, how are we now, and where are we going?
