  •  Burning The Flag (none)
    This piece suggests two things:
    Hillary Clinton is NOT going to be a radically different imperialist than George Bush.
    She will NOT repudiate the use of force to achieve foreign policy objectives, just as her husband and others have done.
    Madeline Albright is Genghiz Khan's sister.  She loved the idea of using force and testing the limits of diplomacy with force as the trump card.
    As for burning the flag ... I went to Vietnam, got seriously wounded, and returned, and also spoke out against that war in 1967.  I never supported it after my experiences in Vietnam, nor do I support this war.
    But, if someone want's to burn the flag, fine. Big deal!
    It's NOT the Shroud of Turin, or "the Robe" or any other sacred fabric.
    Just a flag.
    I agree with the sentiment ... burn a flag, the entire Republic goes to Hell.
    Well, sorry, but that's bullshit.
