12 October, 2000 – Aden, Yemen
The war drags on.
Too many people simply “got over it”, not knowing or caring that every time we acted weak, we convinced our enemies that we were, indeed, weak. Too little effort. Too little determination. And we would pay.
The COLE, and the lack of meaningful response, somehow came up in a recent discussion I had on another site’s post about the August 6th, 2001 PDB. What a weird conversation.
