The Lusitania was carrying ammunition so that the British could kill Germans. The Germans objected. The Germans defended themselves. Our government got us into a fight that was not our's.

To Defeat the Islamic State

The Koran says that if you die whie fighting for Allah, you get a guaranteed pass to Allah's garden. So if some Muslem sets off an atomic bomb in Manhatten, and we retaliate with a thermonuclear weapon on their Middle East city, for them they have died in battle (thus eternity in paradise). For them, that is a win. We cannot allow them to have a nuclear weapon.

Is Ferguson Our Future?

Given our technology, why don't police cars have lots of video recording capability, so that officers can record all confrontations that occur within sight of the police car?

What Have we Accomplished in Iraq?

We unleashed Hell in Iraq. And, by the way, the costs of a war don't cease until the cost of taking care of all soldiers injured in that war are counted up (i.e. for the next 70 years).
We are 17.6 trillion dollars in debt and climbing. Not gonna happen.
Great article, Ann! We agnostics wonder why the omniscient and omnipresent One cannot just stop the ebola virus (instead of motivating lambs to head to the slaughter).

This can of worms was opened up under George W. There was no path to a win, of any sort.
No one is mentioning Malaria. These alien illegal little darlings are coming from the Tropics.
We weren't going to win in Iraq. We were spending billions per month. Glad we left.
Just because we are 17.6 trillion dollars in debt and marching towards calamity is no reason to think we might be going in the wrong direction.
Next fiscal year we should spend 700 billion dollars less than this fiscal year (to have a balanced budget). You think people hate congress now...
