"Taking Stock of the Forever War"

The New York Times Magazine has a long (14 screen) article, “Taking Stock of the Forever War,” reflecting on the four years since the attacks on New York and Washington.

It seems fairly even-handed overall: any article that long will have points people contest. I’m in full agreement with the general thesis, that the United States has achieved some worthwhile goals, but we’re adrift as to strategy, while our opponents are not.

    Hell, the civil war lasted longer than 4 years…
