The problem with this war is that we don't have a single dictator or entity to go after. There is no Soviet Union. There is no Nazi Germany; no imperial Japan. There are only terror cells scattered around the world and among us. They are extremely dangerous and difficult to stop, because they are largely unseen.
We are getting a late start on this war because we have refused to see it coming. Catch-up is always more difficult than staying ahead. These questions must be asked. But the bigger question is, who will answer them? I'm Cal Thomas in Washington.
