commented on Isolationism and These Angry Days
WWII was preceded by civil war in Spain and the Italians in Ethiopia. Smaller conflicts that led up to the main event. Conflicts that no one intervened in.
Also, we are still dealing with the effects of decolonization and the sometimes arbitrary nation boundaries that resulted.
I agree with the author here that this is messy. And, I'm glad that people are trying to take a nuanced look at this situation by looking back as well.

commented on Troops Not Important to Romney
Umm 12. It's a myth that hurts a lot of veterans that we all come home all jacked up in the head and are a danger to our communities. As for thanking the troops, its nice to hear when you are in a remote corner of the world and home seems very far away
