Re: The More Things Change...
It's interesting, isn't it, that even after the defeat at Gettysburg, the Army of Northern Virginia, under the command of General Lee, went on to give the Yankees hell for nearly another two years, losing at last only, as Lee later put it in his General Order No. 9, to "overwhelming numbers and resources." Remember also the media frenzy during the invasion of Iraq when, according to the media pundits, we had lost the war, then a couple of days later we had tanks rolling into Baghdad and Saddam was on the run! I also remember the media after the Tet Offensive of 1968, claiming "all is lost," when in fact the Viet Cong were virtually destroyed for their efforts, not to mention the Marines and Air Force at Khe Sanh which cost the NVA thousands of casualties for no gain. In short, the media are essentially propagandists for the enemies of this country, not the upholders of virtue and American ideals they claim to be. Anyone who listens to them, in my humble opinion, is a damn fool.
