Premature Emasculation

17 January 2014 @ 19:44

Mark Steyn, commenting on our humiliating failure in Afghanistan:

America and its allies have the best tanks, planes, and guns …but no will and no strategy. And so the tanks, planes and guns count for naught. Our enemies have nothing but will. The consequences of this distinction extend well beyond Afghanistan.

There is no physical reason why The United States should be impotent in the world of 2014.

That it is so — and the world is, as a result, as very dangerous a place as it was in the 1930’s — is due to psychological reasons.

We have lost our firmness of purpose, that single-mindedness that sought to police the world in order to protect The United States so it could continue it’s noble endeavors at home [not to be confused with Kumbaya Wilsonianism].

Would that we could straighten-out our issues, recover our manly vigor, and once again be accused of suffering ‘an erection that lasted more than four hours’.

While I wait for this to happen, Mrs. B. and I will be in our bathtubs, holding hands.

    I’ve always wondered…is that part of the prescription…take the pill, sit in separate bathtubs and hold hands?

    Every junior man a tiger, all to be led by jackal.
