Editor’s Note: After multiple emails requesting the ability to respond to essays – I’ve decided to enable comments on the WarCouncil.org site from here on out (and set it up for some previously published articles).  Please keep the comments respectful.  As I’ve heard basketball coach John Calipari say, “just one pinch of poop in a bucket of ice cream spoils the batch.”  Similarly, a few bad comments and I’ll have to shut it down.

That said, I look forward to making the conversation a little bit better.
