The War We Must Win by Louis R. Tarsitano

The War We Must Win

Louis R. Tarsitano on Our Response to September 11

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
—Galatians 5:16–17

By any sane definition, since New York City and Washington, D.C., were attacked on September 11, our nation is at war. It is not a war that we have sought. It is not a war that we have begun. It is, however, a war that we must end, and we must end it in only one way. We must win it.
