It is the day after Obama's speech to the country on Syria. Military action has been postponed, perhaps permanently, an outcome most conservatives wanted. Yet, I doubt many of us woke up happy this morning. I know I did not.

Foreign Policy In The Twilight Zone
Watching events unfold in Washington this week has been like living in the Twilight Zone. Who would have thought five years ago that Barack Obama, an anti-war liberal, would be asking Congress for the authority to bomb Syria?

BREAKING NEWS: Nidal Hasan sentenced to death for the Fort Hood shootings.
The Water's Edge
I received dozens of responses from folks who felt strongly enough to let me know that they disagreed with my argument for action in Syria. I have no doubt that many more of you are ambivalent at best about our possible involvement in Syria.

50 Years After The March
Periodically, I recommend things you should read with your children and grandchildren, such as Abraham Lincoln's second inaugural address or Ronald Reagan's "Evil Empire" speech. Since it is in the news, I would also recommend Reverend Martin Luther King's speech at the Lincoln Memorial 50 years ago, as well as his "Letter from a Birmingham jail."
