A Soldier Reflects On War and Peace

Jim Baxter is a reader who frequently comments about articles posted on this website.  His service to all of us defending the nation entitles him to spotlight the hypocrisy and mendacity of peaceniks who still believe that the abstract concept of “peace” is a tangible “thing” to be bought with the sacrifice of our national survival.

His op-ed piece in The American Daily Herald reflects on the realities of war and peace from the viewpoint of a Marine who was there, in the trenches of bloody fighting to end the militaristic japanese Empire.
