Ft Collins, CO –-( Here we go again, this time in TN:

Several members of our “unarmed forces” were gunned down by a lone terrorist at a recruitment center in Chattanooga, TN.

Few details at present, but there is little doubt victims were selected because they were wearing US military uniforms.

We’ve already heard the standard condemnations and hand-wringing from the local mayor, et al.

Sadly, our so-called “advanced” society has devolved in 150 years to embrace an illogical state of mandatory disarmament and learned helplessness. Even our military personnel are now instructed that they should be fearful of guns, that all American gun-owners are “enemies of the state,” and that being feeble, helpless “good victims,” (while, of course, maintaining a continuous state of personal defenselessness) represent their ultimate civil duties!

Contrary to adolescent expectations of foolish politicians, wars cannot be “turned on,” proceed predictably, then “turned off,” all on an arbitrary time-table. Once started, wars take-on an unconfined personality all their own, with unforeseeable implications, few of which will submit to naive wishes of the original instigators.

And, continuously denying you’re in a war doesn’t make the War go away!

“Let us not pray to be sheltered from danger, but to be fearless when facing it.” ~ Rabindranath Tagore
