Ralph Peter’s interview with Gen. Ray Odierno

Ralph Peter’s interview with Gen. Odierno shows how far we’ve come. It illustrates how wars are won; through constant adaption.

Al-Qaeda is a shadow of its former self. It made the mistake of engaging the United States in outright war (granted, an insurgent war) that allowed a super-power to channel its resources into one area of the world, isolate its enemy, and proceed with its annihilation.

The hard truth is this: Cultures clash. When one problem is dealt with, another will rise. For the rest of our lives, that is the way it will be. Global Utopias make good conversation in classrooms, but hold little resemblance to the world as it is and always has been.

We Americans will continue to offer peace to everyone. We will continue to give billions in aid around the world, to develop technologies that make life better, to trade and lead. We will continue to deal with oppressors who seek to destabilize entire regions for their own personal gain or lust for power or religious zealotry.

And a portion of the New Left, here in the US, will continue to cry fowl, and cry loudest. That does not change the facts as they be: Most of the world loves America; Americans love peace, but not peace at all costs.
