yep. big time.
"I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you." -- Genesis 12:3 Notice that this promise did not come with an expiry date.
We the people do -- in theory. Unfortunately, qui tacet consentire.
The literal French phrase means, "What is it that this is?". Fortunately we have it a lot easier in English -- "what's that?" In French, of course, they also have shorter versions such as "c'est quoi, ca?" ("that is what, that?"). Yes, I grew up in Canada :-)
Seems to me, the problem is that these wars may *start* 7,000 miles away but they don't *stay* there. E.g., 9-11. With some people, if you don't bring the war to them, thyey will bring it to you.

Looking forward to the first comment that ignores the contents of the essay and instead irrelevantly shouts about Iran/Contra. Col. North always seems to get several of those for each of his columns, regardless of his points.

"A society's first line of defense is not the law but customs, traditions and moral values." That's an awesome sentence. I'm going to look for opportunities to spread that one around.
" ... the White House's 2012 LGBT pride reception ... " " ... Two of them ... posed for a photo in front of a portrait of President Ronald Reagan with both their middle fingers extended. They then posted the photo on Facebook ..."
Thanks for your promptness in providing an example.
... I think there's a troll present ...
Awesome. Thanks, Michael.
