As long as unvaccinated people provide a significant breeding ground for COVID-19 virus variants, medical care for those seriously ill with coronavirus will be diminished. Rationing hospital patient admissions has become necessary because of depleted staff, space and equipment.
The initial invasion of Afghanistan after 9/11 had clarity of purpose and wide support of the American people. Twenty years later, we were still bogged down in yet another losing war. Military adventurism does not seem to be working well.
The other day, George W. Bush used his 9/11 anniversary address to rightly denounce Trump’s insurrectionists as the domestic equivalent of foreign jihadists. But alas, Bush’s wise words won’t amount to a hill of beans in his crazy party, because it left him behind years ago.
