Agreed. Maybe the correct Christian petition for our (and any other) country is "Lord, have mercy on America."

Interesting: "striking the balance between freedom and security."; but using military intervention overseas in a preemptive way to protect our interests is heresy in Mr. Buchanan's eyes.
What do you all think of the president's petition from a few weeks ago "God bless Planned Parenthood"?

The Unraveling of Sykes-Picot

The problem with H.G. Wells' (and PB’s) border theory is that the grass is always greener on the other side. Just because ethnic/race groups are allowed to form xenophobic nations, it will not lead to normalizations or peaceful relationships. Ethnic/race groups will always want the prime acreage that invariably will be stuck between these “natural” borders; hence the condition of man’s continual strife with his fellow man since time immemorial (including “enlightened” Western Europe up until 1945). And sorry to say that regardless of what living in Lotus Land may intellectually offer, we all live on a very small rock floating in space; the conflict in the Middle East will come to us in various forms, whether we want it or not.

Yo' baby... The difference is that in these other cases, the good-guys shot back and didn't prevent tactical assistance from supporting them. We all know it's a dangerous world, but apparently the current admin doesn't think so when it fits their politic.
Dear Lord, Please, please, in the name of Your Son, turn away the wrath of your righteous judgment impending against us.

No...just a Christian aerospace engineer that had come to understand fallen human nature and the history it has rote.

Agreed...and if anyone thinks the industrialized world is going to get out of this self-inflicted mess, without first going through the Refiner's furnace to remove the dross, is living in la-la land!

Is War With North Korea Inevitable?

"In a far graver crisis, perpetrated by Nikita Khrushchev in 1962, John F. Kennedy did not hesitate to communicate with the culprit." The perpetrator of the crisis was the nut-job Castro. Kennedy never talked to him. Khrushchev almost lost control of the situation because Castro wanted to use the nukes! The "leader" of the free-world talking to a petulent tin-pot dictator will only inflate his ego even more (dictator, not "leader" - or maybe both). It stinks, but someone has to live out Law and Order in this world - and I would much rather have it be a free nation like the U.S. of A than a frat house of tin-pot dictators (i.e. U.N.).

I totally agree with your first point. But – KPA: 1.1 M active, 8.2 M reserve military personnel and nuke capable. ROK: 0.6 M active, 2.9 M reserve military personnel and NOT nuke capable. Kind of hard to see how South Korea could defend itself in an attack without US forces and materiel being on the ground.

There is no solution to this issue that doesn’t pose painful consequences in one form or another, whether immediate or longer term. To think that the US doing “A” will guarantee that some other country(s) will do “B” leading to outcome “C” is the height of hubris.
