Preparing my lectures for the Bucer Institute this weekend on “America’s Wars” and seeing again the duplicity, naivete, and outright wickedness of our leaders. Breathtaking. Suffocating.
It would be bad enough if their actions merely cost us money or caused national embarrassment. But their decisions costs the lives of hundreds of thousands of young men and uncounted civilians . . . and that’s not even considering the suffering and oppression endured by thousands in the new “peace-time” world that emerged from the rubble.
War is sometimes absolutely necessary. Unfortunately, most of the wars in which we’ve been engaged have been almost completely unnecessary.
The Lord have mercy upon us.
