    fired. Yet there are those who think the problem will go away if we ignore it, the shopping mall massacre in Kenya not withstanding.

    Others have simply gotten old. I prefer to think I've been tempered by time.

      right up until pretending to believe in a terror threat becomes politically convenient.

      And then, "We can't use drones because it will create more terrorists!"

      "We shouldn't support the Arab Spring faction in Syria because they're all al Qaeda terrorists who will murder us in our sleep!"

      I've really become disgusted by the intellectual dishonesty of the extreme isolationists. They're like the Iraq War hawks circa 2002: so convinced of their own surpassing moral superiority and the ultimate, unquestionable goodness of their desired ends that they feel no compunction about using the most underhanded, dishonest tactics to get it.

      Art is the handmaid of human good.

        the America First Committee.

        The America First Committee (AFC) was the foremost non-interventionist pressure group against the American entry into World War II. Peaking at 800,000 paid members in 450 chapters, it was one of the largest anti-war organizations in American history.[1][2] Started in 1940, it shut down after the attack on Pearl Harbor in December 7, 1941.
        The difference is that the new Pearl Harbor happened on September 11, 2001 and their thinking still hasn't changed.

        Others have simply gotten old. I prefer to think I've been tempered by time.
