Ex CENTCOM Commander: War for at least a Generation
It's official. The US "war on terrorism" is like the 19th century "skirmishes"of the Indian Wars - they went on and on with no end in sight (until the Indians were beaten down, of course).
Announced at something called the Aspen Security Summit (2013) by "recently retired [40 year old !] CENTCOM chief General James Mattis" who once said "it's fun to shoot some people." Here's the explainer:
"[Outlining] the challenge ahead ... [he said that] [t]he “war on terror” that began on 9/11 has no discernable end ... likening it to the “the constant skirmishing between [the US cavalry] and the Indians” during the genocidal Indian Wars of the 19th century."
And the kicker:
“The skirmishing will go on likely for a generation,” Mattis declared.
Wink, wink -- no shortage, in the foreseeable future, of jawbs for the contractors and
bribes donations for lawmakers.
