Baqubah – Our Enemy Revealed

As I have said before, there are others that manage to be much more eloquent than I.  Steve Schippert over at threatswatch lays out an opinion that I share, and expresses it much better than I can. 

 

It is therefor sadly understandable that when the words in our National Anthem include “the rockets’ red glare,” many will associate that with beautiful displays of entertaining fireworks. When, in fact, those “rockets’ red glare” written about so eloquently were the trails of destruction, seeking their targets and bringing death and carnage to those who were defending something worth fighting for in the Battle of Baltimore in the War of 1812. Yet for many, little today seems to be worth fighting for at all.

 

Go take a look, Fireworks or Fortitude
