Fred and America’s Wars


I am baffled at these exchanges. Fred, Mark, David seem to me to be on the same side: reminding our citizens that America has long been in the forefront of defending freedom. The other side includes all those anti-Americans, both here and abroad, who portray America as an evil imperialist presence actually fighting against freedom. Osama is different, since he is actively expanding tyranny of a most foul and fanatic sort, and Fred, Mark and David are all outspokenly pointing out that he is totally wrong when he believes–if his grey cells are still functioning–that we are not prepared to fight against him.

Fred’s outspokenly on our side, guys, take a deep breath and welcome it.
