Japan gets it... why can't we?

Japan seems to get the message about how important the war on terror is, especially as its political leaders are trying to prevent the premature end to a naval deployment insupport of operations in Afghanistan.

Those who think that fighting terrorists over there doesn't matter ought to remember what happened when we ignroed signs of trouble in the 1920s and 1930s. We ended up in World War II with tens of thousands dead, and then had to fight a 46-year long Cold War - all to gain a ten-year vacation from history before we were hit in an unprovoked and dastardly attack in 2001.

It could have been avoided - had we recognized that the stuff coming from people like Adolf Hitler wasn't just hot air.
