Bob, please explain how the opinion of a crackpot, selling a book has any relevance here. I know US history: what is your point?
France? Didn't that give you pause? I'm curious, why are you inclined to take those sources as historical? Here's another article elsewhere from the "owner, editor, and webmaster" (Hammond) of "Foreign Policy Journal": Architects & Engineers For 9/11 TruthSince you say the world is our beat to be policed, does the below article describe how the US Foreign Policy manifests "Our Moral Imperative"?
