A History Lesson

I try to remain political free on the blog, but sometimes my passion over takes my reason. I am a tremendous Ronald Reagen buff (as most of you already know from Wilson's name), and I absolutely love his speeches. I am placing two links to his D-D Memorial Speech from 6 JUN 1984 (the first is text and the second is audio). It reminded me that many of today's arguments about the Global War on Terror (GWOT) are many that were argued prior to us declaring war on the Nazi and Japan.

Please take time to listen and read this speech. The audio is 12:59 long, but very powerful.
