Those that are not not close to ready are mocking those in charge. Those that have served well are willing, if no longer able, to once again enter the fray. Few of those approaching the coming unpleasantness have any idea of the dedication required to survive and succeeded. It will be their mind set more than their training that prepares them.
"It is no use saying 'We are doing our best.' You have to succeed in doing what is necessary." - Winston Churchill
For fifty years or more the world has been carried by the few individuals that willingly paid an enormous price in their efforts to unrelentingly do what is necessary. Others have coasted behind their efforts, receiving equal or greater acclaim and rewards, that time is now past.
It is only with unfaltering determination, and a conscious disregard of personal consequences within the coming engagement, that those now entering the battle will come forth as heroes. It is not a time for procrastination, hesitation, and half measures.
The world is changing, those that persevered in the last age will not be able to carry the torch into the new.
It is up to you.
