Just one small point, I have grown to despise the term "war weary". We do not oppose war because we have grown weak in our will. Quite the opposite! Experience has forced us to grow strong in our opposition to folly.
To say that the people are "war weary" implies that we would all happily go to war if we just weren't so darned fatigued. I have been trying to popularize the term "war wise", because the American people are not too tired to fight, we have simply grown wise to the lies of our politicians.
