This week our recent discussion of reason (and its relevance, or not, to homeland security) is on hiatus.  We will see what next week may bring.  In the meantime, if you are traveling to New Haven or want to visit online, you may find this current exhibit of interest.

….and the “reason” Homeland Security has lost its credibility unlike the US military who stood up against fierce political pressure from this perverted WH and called it like it is – so given that anyone who cherishes Liberty and appreciates the many sacrifices by countless Patriots and sees that the only reasoning as to the demise of our great Republic today is certainly because Barry Obama et al hate America and capitalism and YOU were hoodwinked so kindly read:

Chris! As you may know researching a book on military/civil issues worldwide and in USA.

Uniformed military forces will largely be a thing of the past by 2050. IMO of course!

Uniformed armed forces was one basis for the so-called GENEVA CONVENTIONS and go back to Hugo Grotius and the development of the LAW OF WAR.

The USA itself has been a leader in largely undercutting the GENEVA CONVENTIONS [in particular ARTICLE III] i.e. John Yoo!

Presidents are finding that the Chief Executive role [e.g. CIA] is more flexible than the CINC role as we get deeper into the 21st Century.

The bottom line of course is the benefits to the USA of organized violence are argued to outweigh the costs of armed violence.

And Kerry still wants to be President.
