Your morning history assignment

I was pulling together notes to do a longer piece on the Battle of Heurtgen Forest, to follow up on the theme from last week about how the campaign against Germany did nothing to avenge Pearl Harbor (using the Kerry Doctrine logic, of course). But then Hugh Hewitt beat me to it, complete with a nice analysis of Tom Dewey's campaign in 1944.

Secret message to Hugh: my other thing is pulling together some notes about the last month of the election of 1864, and McClellan's blistering attacks on Lincoln's "incompetence." But I'm also a bit busy today, so if you could go ahead and beat me to the punch on that one too I would greatly appreciate it......

The Battle of Huertgen Forest did nothing to beat Germany or Japan. Whjat a hideous waste of men.

what battle in what war was not a waste of the worlds young? Perhaps the answer is to not allow anyone under 65 to participate in war......
