The good news is that new SecDef Leon Panetta says the Unites States and its allies are

"within reach" of completely breaking al-Qaeda

The bad news is an incrementally nuclear Iran, industrial-level nuclear and missile proliferation from North Korea, and questionable and concerning, but perhaps improving nuclear security in Pakistan.

And then there’s China, who is telling the U.S. to stop spending so much on defense while being acknowledged by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff as having arrived as a world power.

I think there may be some sort of lesson about fighting the last war hidden here.

let's all fight
