Barker's Newsbites: Monday, January 7, 2013
Well, folks, Christmas wasn't all watches and booze; Christmas is also a time of gifting - and getting - books.
One of the books I'm presently reading is "Into The Fire: A Firsthand Account Of The Most Extraordinary Battle In The Afghan War," by Dakota Meyer and Bing West.
Yeah... Medal of Honor Recipient Dakota Meyer.
Yep... that Bing West.
I'm only up to page 52, but already it's clear - at least from Meyer's and West's perspectives - that Afghanistan is another Vietnam... only worse.
God help us, folks...
In the meantime... in case any of you have an interest is joining me...
