You Can't Stand on the Rampart and Wait!

In a Military Channel special about WWII pilots in the Pacific, I just heard a carrier pilot say something that, when you think about it is quite profound.

He said, "We all (the pilots) knew what our job was. It was to defend the carrier. If you lose the carrier, you have no place to land, but you can't defend the carrier by standing on the ramparts and waiting to be attacked. You have to go where the trouble started and attack it there."

There in one clear and simple military idea is the reason the foreign policy of the libs (libertarians and liberals) won't work!  We must not forget the lesson we have learned in the past at such a terrible cost in blood, sweat and tears.

Go to where the trouble started and attack it there.
