Charles Krauthammer says the war on terror could last a generation or more.
“Obama wants to pretend that we can unilaterally end this war,” he told The Daily Caller.
“You can’t unilaterally end a war on your own by just declaring it,” he continued. “So that I think is the key notion we have to carry. And we have to be prepared, like our parents’ generation was, to fight generationally. Fascism took a generation to defeat. Communism took two generations to defeat. And this will probably take a generation to defeat. I have no doubt it will be, but I do doubt I’ll be around when it’s concluded.”
TheDC recently conducted an extensive interview with Krauthammer in his Washington office about his new book, “Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes and Politics.” In this segment of the interview, Krauthammer reflects on America’s response to the 9/11 attacks and assesses the current state of the war on terror.
