Dick Cheney and the neocons will soon realize their dreams of forever war against unseen Islamic enemies.

On Wednesday USA Today quoted Army Lt. Gen. William Mayville, director of operations for the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who said forever war is a certainty.
“I would think of it in terms of years,” Mayville said.
Obama said as much on Tuesday. “This is not going to be something that is quick, and it is not something that is going to be easy,” he said.
One might be reminded of George Orwell’s 1984 where the Inner Party conducted an unwinnable forever war.
“We’ve always been at war with Eastasia,” the party claimed as it effortlessly changed enemies from “Eurasia” to “Eastasia” during Hate Week.
We have our own rotating and ever mutating roster of enemies – al-Qaeda, ISIS, al-Nusra, and now the fearsome Khorasan – and they will serve the military industrial complex well.
