    Unused Militaries

    For a couple of decades I covered the military for various publications, as for example the Washington Times and Harper’s, and wrote a military column for Universal Press Syndicate. I was following the time-honored principle of sensible reporters: “Ask not what you can do for journalism, but what journalism can do for you.” The military beat was a great gig, letting you fly in fighter planes and sink in submarines. But if you take the study seriously, as I did, you learn interesting things. Such as that a war with a real country, such as Russia, China, or even Iran, would be a fool’s adventure. A few points:

    Unused Militaries, by Fred Reed - The Unz Review
    All men are created equal and have certain unalienable rights- there are no caveats.
    Truth is constant, what was true yesterday is true today and will be true tomorrow.
    Knowledge evolves, is not biased in its origin, and can manifest itself in ways unimaginable.

    Well written, unpleasant to contemplate, and too damn true.
