#1 Warning - off topic comment - sorta, sorta not.

Looking at the number of views of posted articles over the past year or so, it's easy to spot the trend. Articles at the top of the page generally get fewer views than those at the bottom. That is, traditional "War on Terror" items are becoming of less interest than local issues. One theory is that war fatigue is setting in... just tired of reading about the latest splodydope. My own feeling is that the war has just moved closer to home. The terrorists that represent an existential threat are more likely to be found in NYC, LA and Portland than in Kabul or Damascus. (The jury is still out on Tehran).

#3 We’ve always had heavy discussions of articles about politics and culture — some pretty serious flame wars on the subject in the old days, too. I’ll go directly to a few articles and commenters that catch my eye, then go back to the beginning and read down to the last comment at the end, to ensure that I’m up to date on the current WoT battlefronts. I apologize for not keeping up with the weekly Europe/Britain/Australia round ups, but it required more time than I have.

#4 Sub consciously many Americans are loosing interest in protecting the West when Europe is allowing rampant Islamic migration into their countries. And when news organizations over there such as the BBC are giving a lot of supportive coverage to extreme leftist politicians in the US such as AOC.
