The last time this many American Soldiers were killed in a military action inside the continental United States was in the Modoc War in 1873. Now we have a new war, being fought by an enemy that wears our uniforms, shakes our hand, takes our oath, and then acts out of a fanaticism to kill, maim, and terrify as many people as possible. There are families all over America that will be burying their children in the coming days. Young men who died without weapons in their hands, on a U.S. Army base, shot by one of their own officers because he was a traitor to the United States. It is time and past time to see this for what it really is. A clash of civilizations that we can yet lose.
In peace the sons bury their fathers, but in war the fathers bury their sons.
