    Three brilliant articles, Dub, particularly the third. Thanks very much. Sadly it is true that emotions must be (american expression) "calibrared" properly, in other words, geographic borders are supposed to contain all your tears and pride, irrespective of what the rulers within them do to the people inside those borders.
    If you fly the flag high then you must also say, thank god for Bush!
    Ad if you say "the Yanks are wrong" then you're nothing short of a traitor.
    These are (just) two of the idiotic beliefs that destroy the country from within.

    And, yes, truth is on the ground which is stamped by the soldier's boots, not in cushily carpeted oval room where little more than orals and facials take place.

    Thanks, mate!
