This is neither the time nor the way for a Global War on Terrorism memorial to be established. Right now our soldiers need our support to fight this war. It is not yet time to commemorate the dead when the living are still actively fighting. A memorial on the National Mall should be established with federal funding when a war is over, preferably won, to remember the war and honor the soldiers who fought it. This memorial does neither. It seems to be more about memorializing hate than honorable service to the country. We must find a way to honor our soldiers, but this is not it.
