    when we think about what we're fighting for.  

    I'm not a fan of drones, I'm less a fan of sending troops into every country that harbors terrorists.  It's a new world for the US, we ignored terrorism until the twin towers went down.  It wasn't the first time AQ attacked them, and who knows that?  My friend who lived in Isreal on an Aliyah was given her gas mask and shelter location before she left the airport.  In 1986.  She returned here after her every morning coffee shop was bombed and many friends died.  Still visits a lot.  She's stunned that we don't get the reality of religious wars based in hatred of everyone who believes differently, that we blow off the danger this represents.  We ignore the Christianists, blow off their version of Sharia laws because we don't get how dangerous terrorists are.  What's the answer?  I don't know.  I heard Obama saying war isn't the answer, that diplomacy and respect for others is the way forward.  I'll take that.

    I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.
