“The events in Lebanon and Grenada, though oceans apart, are closely related. Not only has Moscow assisted and encouraged the violence in both countries, but it provides direct support through a network of surrogates and terrorists….You know, there was a time when our national security was based on a standing army here within our own borders and shore batteries of artillery along our coasts, and, of course, a navy to keep the sea-lanes open for the shipping of things necessary to our well-being. The world has changed. Today our national Security can be threatened in faraway places.” Ronald Reagan 27 Oct 1983

I got back from Iraq in Nov 05. I’ve been posting here since the Spring of ‘98. I learned about FREEREPULIC from a link off of The Drudge Report. I enjoy reading, and I’ve visted, been to, or lived in 32 countries, and will likely see a few more before I’m done.
