"One virtue of war is that it often provides society with an unusual degree of clarity about political issues. War tempts us with an irresistibly simple choice between Them and Us, enemy and friend, wrong and right, annihilation or survival. That kind of thinking came very easily during the Cold War. Every schoolboy knew that They -- the so-called Evil Empire -- were hellbent on destroying Us and our democratic way of life." (09/05/11)
