It's a call to arms again from leaders on capital hill. Today a terrorist attack in Brussels killed 34 and had injured almost 200. Those numbers are likely to climb as the full extent of the carnage is truly understood.
What now? Leaders in America are calling for an escalation of the war in Syria and Iraq. They are dying to put more men in harms way under the banner of protecting America. But I ask you, "What will change?"
We've already been fighting a war on terror for more than a decade. We've beaten back the enemy time and time again only to see them reconstitute themselves in another part of the middle east under a new banner. If what we've done for the past decade has only made the situation worse, how will our strategy change now?
The answer is it won't. And if nothing about or approach will change can we expect the outcome to be different?
From the subject of Brussels, we'll switch gears and look again to Finland. A recent article posted by a Fin, currently living in the US, attempts to explain why their model is superior to Americas form of capitalism.
This article tries to take apart some of the common objections to European socialism, so naturally I felt the need to step in.
Great show today. Listen now!
