<strong>The second post today from a friend ... this one from Michael Suderman.</strong>
At what point did we become such cowards? Over 200 years ago this country was founded by people who, without fear, stood up to an adversary immensely more powerful than themselves and declared that no longer would they be governed by tyranny, ruled by force or controlled by fear. They understood that ALL MEN, regardless nationality or religious belief, deserved the right of freedom from persecution. Since that time this country has heralded that as the cornerstone of our ideology. We have fought innumerable wars in that cause, extended our hand in friendship to the world promoting that. Promised our aid to any and all that asked fighting for that.
