We will never live in peace time again. The United States of America exists in a state of "forever war".
The ultimate success of the George W. Bush administration (2000-2008) was to place the United States in a constant aggressive stance. Our enemies, whom orchestrated the 9/11 attacks, will be sought, hunted and removed from existence. Behind these national security objectives lay numerous ambitious corporations, implementing cutting edge 21st century technologies. The context and back story to "why 9/11 occurred" is never debated with the citizens of the mighty USA. The nation moves forward in fervent retribution. The winners of the IRAQ/AFGHANISTAN wars are stockholders of military products and combat activities, and they will not be satisfied by declining profits. Prepare yourself for constant updates of continuing missions and battles. We live in a state of FOREVER WAR.
