Another Reader Examines the Iraq War

Wayne Lusvardi looks at our invasion of Iraq from a perspective often touched upon in THE VIEW FROM 1776: reasons for military and diplomatic actions sometimes cannot be disclosed fully to the public, even though failure to disclose them may allow political opponents to distort the policies involved.

An Inspiring Story for New Year’s Resolve

No matter what liberal-progressive-socialists teach you in school today, what counts is still, and always, the individual human soul striving against the odds.  To put a little steel in your backbone read this account of one man’s unremitting struggle.

A Reader’s Review of American Foreign Policy

New Website Features

All postings now have two new function links at the bottom of each article.  One is for producing a printable page; the other for emailing the article to a friend.

I’ve been searching unsuccessfully a long time for ready-made plug-ins.  Happily I found a terrific software group who have produced these new features and straightened out another formatting problem.

LS Media in Wilton, Connecticut (1-866-351-4678) are very professional, easy to work with, and fast.  I recommend them highly.
