Give me fever

This reads as if it were written in a fever induced delirium. Readers in a fever induced delirium will eat it up.

Andrew J. Bacevich is an Obummer supporter and a fixture of the left. A college professor at BU with military background to give him street cred.

BTW, when did we start posting Al Jazeera crap w/o a barf alert?

From wikipedia:

Bacevich graduated from West Point in 1969 and served in the United States Army during the Vietnam War, serving in Vietnam from the summer of 1970 to the summer of 1971. Later he held posts in Germany, including the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment, the United States, and the Persian Gulf up to his retirement from the service with the rank of Colonel in the early 1990s. He holds a Ph.D. in American Diplomatic History from Princeton University, and taught at West Point and Johns Hopkins University prior to joining the faculty at Boston University in 1998. On May 13, 2007, Bacevich's son, 1LT Andrew J. Bacevich, Jr., was killed in action in Iraq by an improvised explosive device south of Samarra in Salah ad Din Governate.[4] The younger Bacevich, 27, was a First Lieutenant in the U.S. Army,[5] assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 8th U.S. Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division.

I disagree with much that he says but I'm humbled by what he has given.

Andrew J. Bacevich is a professor of history and international relations.

Professor of history? Really? He went from WW I to Vietnam. Guess he must have been sleeping the days his teachers aides were going over WW II and Korea. He seems to have left out Bay of Pigs and a couple of others between Vietnam and now.

I did not realize until now that there exists one so demented as the alleged author of this alleged article!
Rare is the occasion when one happens upon so much tripe published in so few paragraphs.

This was supposedly an LA Times Op-Ed. I'm not sure why Al Jazzera has it as well, but I'm not going to bother to click through and investigate it.

Anyway, Taranto ripped this guy a new hole today - see http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702304314404576413923687472488.html?mod=googlenews_wsj

When the towers were attacked I wish we would have built them back right where they were PLUS an identical pair of towers on the West Coast. Tell the world that if anybody touches anything here again we will build a THIRD set of towers in whatever country attacks us. Of course we’d have to clear a place to build them. That is sanity.

The author misses the point about why we “should” go to war. If our national survival is at stake them we should go to war and it should must be a violent and brutal war with no quarter drawn. It must be a war with the intention of removing the enemy from the face of the earth and leave his society a smoking ruin of death and despair for the few that are left alive. In this manner we would seldom need to go to war. From 1948 to the present this is what keep World War III from starting between the USA and the USSR. Both knew that in case of war both would be totally destroyed.

If our enemy thinks he can go to war with us on a basis of limited retaliation by the USA he might decide to make war against us. If he knows in his heart that if he goes to war with the USA he will be destroyed and all the he knows and loves will die, he will not make war against us.

This is not rocket science.

Nonsense, of course, from a left wing professor spouting anti American Marxism.

Notice he ignored the Cambodian holocaust, the boat people, and the Vietnamese war against China that occured as a result of America withdrawing in Vietnam? Intervention to stop murderous dictators is retwisted as evil, and the huger evil done by those America opposed is simply ignored.
