    Here’s your martial law, on the installment plan:

    FOIA requests include sensitive information all the time. They just redact the material that is classified or potentially dangerous to specific individuals (i.e. individually identifying information). The rest is released. Therefore, the above post fits absolutely right in the middle of the territory contained within the thread’s title.

    But then the war is lost anyway. Any skirmishes from here on out are the equivalent of the lonely Japanese soldiers that were holed up in caves or on mountains long after the war was over, still fighting a war they either believed was not over, or believed SHOULDN’T have been over. Reality sux.

    Too bad I’ve statistically still got 10-15 more years left to have to witness it all – maybe more, unfortunately. I fully expect to be lamenting the same kinds of hopeless circumstances we’ve already witnessed with our African, Greek, and other members that rarely even show up here anymore. Perhaps they’re realizing that if we can’t even hold it together in the “land of the free, home of the brave,” there’s no hope for the rest of the world either. We’ve got the best founding documents of anyone in the world (with ZERO deference to Justice Ginsburg’s statements otherwise), and we still couldn’t even keep it going for 250 years.

    GS, the real war, the one between good and evil, may never be completely finished, though we hope for the best, but I fear your statement on the present battle is correct.

    I once had the pleasure to meet Guy R. Odom, an author of two books, Mothers, Leadership, and Success, and America’s Man on Horseback . He was retired as the one time president of the largest homebuilding company in America, about nine years my senior, and he told me that to do all the research he had done to write those books, he had read at least three scholarly works, on a wide variety of topics, each week(!), since his retirement, almost two decades prior. I was impressed, to say the least.

    In those two books, he establishes, then uses as a point from which to reason, that great nations, both ancient, and recent, if they are successful, only last, from glorious and strident beginning, to ignominious and often bloody collapse, only about 250 years, on average, the variance, plus or minus, rarely exceeding 25 years. He attributes this to the average of 25 years, on average, to begin the nexterm generation — 10 generations, beginning to end!

    He reckoned the beginning of the rise of an independent America, not from 1776, with the Declaration, nor from 1789, with the Constitution, but that day in 1763, during the French and Indian War, when then Colonel George Washington carried his dying British General off the field of battle, having seen proof that despite their reputation, and superior weaponry, the British troops could be beaten. By Odom’s reckoning, we are already three years past our “Best By” date. I must confess, it looks that way to me, as well.

    Odom expected, as he wrote in his second book, that like Rome, when their Republic had run its course, we will be at least partly reconstituted as the American Empire, not exactly the ideal to make the heart of a radical advocate for Liberty sing, but perhaps better for our progeny, than immediate conquest.

    Take it for what you will. I have no pedigree. I’m just an American.
